Trump permanently banned from Snapchat

Snapchat has permanently banned President Donald Trump‘s account from its app, the social media company announced in a statement Wednesday.

“Last week we announced an indefinite suspension of President Trump’s Snapchat account, and have been assessing what long term action is in the best interest of our Snapchat community,” a Snapchat spokesperson said in a statement shared with multiple news outlets.

“In the interest of public safety, and based on his attempts to spread misinformation, hate speech, and incite violence, which are clear violations of our guidelines, we have made the decision to permanently terminate his account.”

This is the latest social media platform to suspend President Trump’s accounts since January 6th’s deadly Capitol riot in Washington D.C. when rioters attempted to stop the day’s certification of the states’ Electoral College votes and President-elect Joe Biden‘s 2020 election win.

Trump was also permanently banned from Twitter and is indefiinitely suspended from Facebook.
