I am not a fan of censorship unless it is inciting violence or in some way commits a crime. It is a slippery slope.

The best way for these massive platforms to handle incendiary or criminal communication may be to have oversight outside of the company.
Limiting what he can freely say to his zealous supporters, or at least slowing it down into fragmented parts, seems to be a sensible thing to do.

Wrong answer.

Both of these men need to be reminded that they are REPRESENTATIVES of the people and that Trump should be present at the last step of the civil Peaceful Transfer of Power. Presence by the outgoing president is an important show of respect for the office of the presidency and the acknowledgement of a free election.
Completely Agree.

Deutsche Bank 'cuts ties with Donald Trump over Capitol riots'

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business...capitol-riots/

Two of Donald Trumpís favoured banks are pulling away from the billionaire president in the wake of last weekís deadly riot at the US Capitol.

Deutsche Bank AG has decided to refrain from further business with Mr Trump and his company, said a person with knowledge of the matter, asking not to be identified because the deliberations were confidential. Mr Trump owes the Frankfurt-based lender more than $300 million.

And Signature Bank, the New York lender thatís long catered to his family, said itís cutting ties while it presses for his resignation. Signature is closing two personal accounts in which Mr Trump held about $5.3 million, a spokesperson for the firm said on Monday.
These "cuts" may well be the start of the collapse of Trump's financial "empire", given the number of lawsuits pending in which he is either plaintiff or defendant .....

This was carried out by disgruntled employee who decided such a childish stunt was more important than his job.

Re: Trump - The Long Goodbye

Hi

Free Speech comes at a cost.

I can call our PM, Boris, all the names under the sun.

I regularly do, I also call Corbyn all sorts of names.

That is my right and I will defend it.

What I cannot do is threaten violence against them, or incite violence against them or others.

That is not how our system works.

I have a vote and every few years I can use that vote to get rid of them.

I was part of the system and Free Speech has it's limits.

Free speech does not include inciting violence or Terrorism and in particular does not include posting details of how to make bombs to kill and injure people.
