Tell Zuckerberg: Don’t Give Trump His Megaphone Back
Mark Zuckerberg is waiting for the Facebook Oversight Board to give its recommendation on whether to reinstate Donald Trump’s account.
But we already know what giving Trump a platform to spread hate and lies can lead to: white-supremacist acts of terror. In Kenosha, Wisconsin. At the U.S. Capitol. In the Atlanta area. And the rise of a new Jim Crow.
Facebook has a strong motivation to allow Trump back online: the massive profits that hate and disinformation bring.
With conservative groups and politicians ramping up the pressure, we must do the same and tell Mark Zuckerberg: Regardless of what your oversight board says, you must permanently ban Donald Trump now.
