Capitol Hill invasion: Donald Trump suspended indefinitely from Snapchat

Capitol Hill invasion: Donald Trump suspended indefinitely from Snapchat

Following Trump’s efforts to incite violence in the US capital this week, Snapchat has suspended his account indefinitely on Wednesday after the riots that broke out at the Capitol that left four dead and many injured.

Recall that protesters loyal to President Trump stormed the Capitol on Wednesday, halting Congress’s counting of the electoral votes to confirm President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s victory as the police evacuated lawmakers from the building.

The incident left four persons dead and several others injured.

Snapchat has now taken the move to suspend the president indefinitely from their platform.

“We can confirm that earlier on Wednesday we locked President Trump’s Snapchat account,” a Snapchat spokesperson told The Hill.

The spokesperson said the company is concerned about the rhetoric from Trump and the attacks on Democratic institutions.

This isn’t the first time Snapchat has stood against the president; the social media platform took Trump off its Discover feature back in June.

“We are not currently promoting the President’s content on Snapchat’s Discover platform. We will not amplify voices who incite racial violence and injustice by giving them free promotion on Discover,”

Snapchat said in a statement back in June as Black Lives Matter protests were occurring across the country.

“Racial violence and injustice have no place in our society and we stand together with all who seek peace, , equality and justice in America.”
