Given the gravity of the circumstances that led to Mr. Trump’s suspension,” Nick Clegg, vice president of global affairs at Facebook, wrote in a company blog post, “we believe his actions constituted a severe violation of our rules which merit the highest penalty available under the new enforcement protocols.
If reinstated, Trump will be subject to a set of “rapidly escalating sanctions” if he committed further violations, up to and including the permanent suspension of his account.
Facebook also said it was ending a policy that treated content by politicians differently from that of other users. The policy had previously been used to allow Trump, and other global leaders, to post content that violated Facebook’s rules.
