I'm writing to urge you to continue the indefinite ban of Donald Trump from Facebook and to make the ban permanent.
His posts on Facebook have put US democracy and civil society at grave risk.
Donald Trump and other world leaders should be held to the same standards that other Facebook users are held to, which means they should not be allowed to use the platform to foment hate and incite violence.
By repeatedly doing just that, Donald Trump has violated Facebook's community standards. More importantly, he has provoked real-world harms.
I urge you to take a stand against all world leaders—from Myanmar to India to the United States—who are using Facebook as a tool to instigate violence and human rights violations. The first step is to ban Donald Trump permanently from Facebook.
Why is this important?
Donald Trump is no longer on Facebook.
According to a recent report from Zignal Labs, misinformation dropped over 70% once the former President was banned.
That's great news for everyone who wants hate and lies off their social media platforms. If Facebook had held the former President to the same standards as other users, he would have been booted a long time ago. But now the tech giant has announced the decision to ban Trump is under review by the brand new Facebook Oversight Board.
Let's make sure the Facebook Oversight Board does its jobs and keeps Donald Trump off Facebook.
Send them a message today: hate and lies have no place on Facebook.
