The president was permanently banned by Twitter on Friday following his supporter’s violent and deadly insurrection at the US Capitol on Wednesday.

  • “Big tech is able to censor the President?” he wrote. “Free speech is dead & controlled by leftist overlords.”
  • For the vast majority of his presidency, Twitter allowed Trump to remain on the platform due to the newsworthiness of his posts, but he was banned Friday after his followers’ deadly attack on the US Capitol on Wednesday.
  • Donald Trump Jr., the eldest son of President Donald Trump, on Saturday took to Twitter to rebuke his father’s permanent ban from the platform.

    “The world is laughing at America & Mao, Lenin, & Stalin are smiling,” Trump Jr. said in a tweet. “Big tech is able to censor the President? Free speech is dead & controlled by leftist overlords.”
