According to the head of Chechnya, the blocking of Trump’s social media accounts was a manifestation of the justice of the Almighty
The head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, said that after the blocking of accounts in the social networks of US President Donald Trump, they became “somewhat similar” with him. Kadyrov wrote about this in his Telegram channel.
“Now Trump and I are somewhat similar: if earlier he blocked me on social networks, now the Almighty has restored justice, and as a result, the accounts of the rebellious Donald Trump are also blocked,” Kadyrov wrote.
After the protest, which was accompanied by the seizure of the building of the US Congress by Trump supporters, a number of social networks announced the blocking of the accounts of the US President.
Twitter was the first to temporarily block Trump’s account. There are 89 million subscribers to Trump’s page there, and the blocking has been announced for 12 hours.
Facebook, which also owns Instagram, announced that it was blocking the account of the President of the United States until the change of head of the White House. The founder of the network, Mark Zuckerberg, explained this by the need to ensure a peaceful transfer of power to Joe Biden, who won the election.
According to the businessman, the events of the past 24 hours have shown that Trump intends to use his powers in order to prevent Biden. “We believe that there are great risks if the president uses our services,” Zuckerberg said. Trump, with his messages, rather pandered to those who were going to storm the Capitol, and therefore it was decided to remove his publications so as not to provoke new riots, Zuckerberg reported.
Canadian e-commerce software company Shopify has removed Trump-related stores from its platform, as has PayPal. She closed an account that raised money and helped Trump supporters get to Washington.
After the end of the Twitter lockdown, Trump published a post condemning the violence during the protests of his supporters on Capitol Hill and the storming of the Congress building. Trump promised that those who violated the law during the rally will be held accountable. He also stated that those who resorted to violence that day were not representatives of the United States. “We have just gone through an intense election, emotions are running high, but now passions must subside and calm be restored,” the president said.
Trump promised that he would focus on the legal and peaceful transfer of power to the new administration. He assured that Biden’s inauguration would take place as scheduled on January 20.
