THE TRUMP TWEETS: Trump Responds to Facebook's Decision to Leave Him in Jail

The following news item is from the Washington ComPost, along with some Remnant Editor's heckling in red:

The Washington Post is reporting that the Facebook Oversight Board, an outside and totally “objective”yeah, RIGHT!—group funded and created by Facebook—well, of course it is!—to review the social media giant’s thorniest policy choicesI do NAZI it as “thorny” so much as fascist!has decided to uphold the decision to suspend Trumpsurprise, surprise!—. The board announced Wednesday morning that Facebook needed to decide within six months—hey, take your time, Mark, you’re a busy guy!—how long Trump’s suspension would last, or if it would be permanentGee, Mr. Zuckerberg, Melania and I sure appreciate that!

In other words, the snarky condescension goes on. In six months, if Donald Trump sets up a social media platform of his own, Facebook would lose 75 million users in 24 hours.

In any case, here’s President Trump’s response:

Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America

What Facebook, Twitter, and Google have done is a total disgrace and an embarrassment to our Country. Free Speech has been taken away from the President of the United States because the Radical Left Lunatics are afraid of the truth, but the truth will come out anyway, bigger and stronger than ever before. The People of our Country will not stand for it! These corrupt social media companies must pay a political price, and must never again be allowed to destroy and decimate our Electoral Process.
