Donald Trump encouraged the Capitol rioters and so earned his Facebook ban, but the social media giant's rules are in "shambles" and need fixing, the co-chair of the network's oversight panel said Sunday. The panel agreed just days ago that Facebook was right to oust the ex-president for his comments regarding the deadly January 6 rampage, though it sidestepped an overall decision on whether he will ever be allowed back. "He issued these statements which were just egging on - with perfunctory asking for peace - but mostly he was just egging them on to continue," oversight body co-chair Michael McConnell told Fox News Sunday. Facebook Oversight Board Upholds Donald Trump Ban From Platform Trump was suspended from Facebook and Instagram after posting a video during the attack by his fired-up supporters challenging his election loss, in which he told them: "We love you, you're very special." "He (Trump) bears responsibility for his own situation. He put … [Read more...] about Donald Trump ‘Egged on’ Capitol Rioters, Says Facebook Oversight Board

President Donald Trump wrote this week a letter to the World Health Organization (WHO) chief Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus criticizing the U.N. agency and his leadership during the coronavirus pandemic, specifically its work with China, where the outbreak first emerged. The letter laid out the Trump administration's case against the WHO for how it handled the pandemic and its soft stance on China, which is accused of covering up the emergence of a new coronavirus in the early days of the outbreak, allowing it to spread rapidly across the world. Trump has increased his criticism of the WHO in recent weeks as he came under attack for his own government's response to the coronavirus emergency. Now, he has suspended U.S. funding of the WHO "pending an investigation" by his administration of the agency's response to COVID-19, the disease caused by the new strain of coronavirus. To date, more than 4.9 million confirmed COVID-19 cases have been reported worldwide, according to a … [Read more...] about Donald Trump’s WHO letter about China explained: An annotated timeline
President Donald Trump has fired a key member of his cabinet and replaced him with his personal doctor. Veterans Affairs secretary David Shulkin became the latest official to be sacked by Trump via a tweet last night. Shulkin had been rumoured to be next on the chopping board after facing negative headlines for months over his questionable use of taxpayer expenses. A recent report revealed that during a trip to London and Denmark he improperly accepted tickets to the Wimbledon tennis tournament and his chief of staff made false statements so Shulkin’s wife could travel at government expense. Trump replaced Shulkin with a complete unknown, Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson who has been working as the presidential doctor. Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin was fired last night ( Image: JIM LO SCALZO/EPA) Jackson gave the President a clean bill of health in January and even described Trump as having "incredible genes".
