Washington.- The social network Snapchat announced on Wednesday that it decided to “permanently” suspend the account of the president of the United States, Donald Trump, days after he announced the indefinite suspension of the profile of the Republican leader after the assault on the Capitol by his followers .
“In the interest of public safety, and based on your attempts to spread misinformation, hate speech and incite violence, which are clear violations of our guidelines, we have made the decision to permanently terminate your account,” said a spokesperson for the social network quoted by the CNN chain.
The spokesperson for Snap, which owns the social network of images that disappears after a few hours, said that after last week’s measure they were “evaluating which long-term action” was “the best for our community.”
Trump, who this Wednesday became the first US president to be politically prosecuted on two occasions, this time accused of “inciting insurrection”, has faced different measures adopted by the main social networks in response to the violent assault on the Capitol in Washington, in which five people died.
On Tuesday, YouTube announced that it decided to suspend the channel of Trump, who will not be able to upload new content for at least 7 days, almost the time remaining in his term.
