By BBN Staff: Chaos rang throughout the United States of America yesterday as civilians gathered to riot at the Capitol building. The riots were led by individuals who labeled themselves as pro-Trump activists and resulted in the death of 4 persons. In addition, the national congress was evacuated and the national guard activated.
Photos and videos from the scene were described as horrifying by many, and the riots were condemned by many world leaders. The Ministry of Foreign affairs of Belize even issued a statement condemning ‘the brazen attempt to interrupt the constitutional order in the United States of America’.
Today, the CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg announced that Trump has been banned indefinitely from Facebook and Instagram platforms.
In a statement released this morning, Zuckerberg stated that, “We believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great. Therefore, we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete.”
With Trump banned from major social media platforms, one may ask, what is next for the outgoing president? Will his remaining 13 days in office be met with even more chaos or will this pass as well? We can only stand by and observe as January 20th, 2021 approaches.
