Congressman LaHood Disappointed in Facebook's Ruling on Former President Trump

According to one Central Illinois lawmaker, Facebook's Oversight Board decision to continue the network's ban of former President Donald Trump's social media accounts set's a 'terrible precedent.'


On Wednesday, a Facebook-appointed panel of lawyers, journalists, and activists announced their decision to continue the former President's ban after the social network reports Trump used the site to form an insurrection in Washington in January. Congressman Darin LaHood said the platform's decision to continue the ban more than four months after the insurrection is 'fundamental unfairness.'



Both YouTube and Twitter have also barred the former President after the insurrection at the Capitol.
