Facebook reinstating Trump puts profit above public interest

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” on Wednesday that Facebook’s parent company Meta is reinstating former President Donald Trump’s personal account after a two-year suspension following the Riot of January 6, 2021 at the Capitol for “profit”. .”

Anchor Joy Reid said: “Donald Trump is the only announced Republican candidate for president so far. He has just regained access to his Facebook and Instagram accounts.

Schiff said: “I think Facebook’s decision to reinstate Donald Trump is inexplicable. This represents, in my opinion, a total collapse and stall. The only pattern I can see is a profit pattern here.

He added: “If you look at what Donald Trump has posted on his own social media platform, it all violates Facebook policies. He continued to bring aid and comfort to those who committed acts of insurrection. He continues to spread the big lie. And the idea that somehow he wouldn’t do that on Facebook when he does on his own platform, to me, is a tragic decision by a company that puts profit above the public interest. .

Reid added: “They said they thought the threat was over, which sounds ridiculous.”
