Donald Trump Banned From Facebook Most-Likely Until End Of His Presidential Term

Published

on

For at least two weeks – and probably indefinitely – Donald Trump has been removed from his Facebook account. It means that until after the transfer of power to Joe Biden on 20 January, the President will be unable to post on Facebook and Instagram.

After his followers threatened the US Capitol, the social network had originally implemented a 24-hour ban.

Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s chief, wrote that the risks of allowing Mr. Trump to post “are simply too great”

In a Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube video, Mr. Trump told the rioters “I love you” before asking them to go home. He repeated false allegations of electoral fraud as well.

Mr. Zuckerberg said Facebook had removed the president’s posts “because we judged that their effect – and likely their intent – would be to provoke further violence”.

He said Mr. Trump’s aim to disrupt the transition of power to President-elect Joe Biden was obvious.

“Therefore, we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete,” he wrote. Mr. Trump’s favored platform, Twitter, had also suspended the president for 12 hours.

It said it required the removal of three tweets for “severe violations of our Civic Integrity policy”.

The company said the president’s account if the tweets were not deleted, would stay locked for good.

It went on to say that “Future violations of the Twitter Rules… will result in permanent suspension of the @realDonaldTrump account”.

Mr. Trump was also stopped by Snapchat from making new posts but did not say whether or when the ban would end. YouTube deleted the video as well.

His supporters stormed the U.S. government headquarters and fought with the police, causing one woman to die.

The violence brought the congressional debate over the election victory of Democrat Joe Biden to a halt.

Republicans have been questioning the certification of November’s election results in the House and Senate chambers. President Trump had told supporters at the National Mall in Washington before the attack that the election had been robbed.

Hours later, he appeared on camera and reiterated the false assertion as the violence mounted inside and outside the US Capitol.

YouTube said it had deleted the video because it “violated policies on spreading election fraud”

Initially, Twitter did not take the video down, but eliminating the opportunity to retweet, like, and comment on it and another tweet.

It later removed them, however, and suspended the outgoing president. YouTube already had the policy to eliminate false news, which is extended to the president, about mass election fraud.

Online, including on Facebook groups and sites, the march was partly coordinated.

Facebook said it was searching for and deleting posts that caused or sponsored the Capitol Hill storm. Shopify, the Canadian e-commerce software company, also took action against the president.

It took shops to run offline by the Trump campaign and the Trump Organisation, saying its laws forbade retailers to help those advocating abuse.

“As a result, we have terminated stores affiliated with President Trump,” it told the Wall Street Journal.

Mothers-Teachers Collaboration Makes PdPR A Success

Published

on

KINABATANGAN, June 25  — The implementation of home-based teaching and learning (PdPR) requires full commitment from teachers and students, but the role of parents is also important in ensuring its effectiveness.

Teachers at a school in the interior of Sabah are aware of mothers’ influence in the success of PdPR, especially in areas where it is difficult to conduct online learning.

A teacher, Najme Nasir, said mothers of pupils of Sekolah Kebangsaan (SK) Sungai Lokan, had given a strong commitment to making PdPR a success since last year.

“The one who gives a lot of cooperation is the mother at home, the one who helps the students a lot is the mother, the one who keeps nagging kids about their homework is the mother.

“For that, we really appreciate the role of mothers in helping their children and also helping us teachers implement PdPR,” he told Bernama when contacted.

Najme said the commitment of the mothers made it easier for teachers to monitor the progress of students at home as some areas in Kampung Sungai Lokan did not have good internet access due to the hilly terrain.

The school’s teachers and headmaster, Masnah Apong, always looking for ideas to encourage students to be interested in learning, he said.

Among them is using their own money to buy school supplies, wrapped them before delivering them to 62 school children at their homes.

“There is no denying that the performance of students in the interior is different from that in the city, let alone when PdPR was launched following the pandemic.

“For us, we want the students here not to be left behind in their studies,” he said.
