“You shouldn’t act like a bully,” he added.
The social networking site has banned Trump indefinitely following the attack on the Capitol on 6 January, however Facebook’s Oversight Board later said that it was “not appropriate” to suspend him without a fixed time frame and instructed the company to review their decision.
Facebook then released a statement that they are banning Trump for a period of two years, lasting until 7 January 2023.
His suspension also included his Instagram account. Following that, Trump was also banned from other social networking platforms including YouTube and Twitter.
