Trump sues Twitter, Facebook and Google over social media bans

NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES - JULY 07: Former US President Donald Trump announced he is suing Facebook, Twitter and Google as well as their respective CEOs Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey and Sundar Pichai on Wednesday (July 7). In June Facebook suspended Trump from its platform and his Instagram account until Jan. 7, 2023, saying they will be "only reinstated if conditions permit." The former president had been banned from Twitter and Facebook after he urged his supporters to "stop the steal," and called them "great patriots" in the midst of the Jan. 6 insurrection at the US Capitol. Four people died that day at the Capitol, and a law enforcement officer died the following day after suffering two strokes. Two other officers present during the riot took their own lives in the aftermath. Following the social media bans, he launched a new communication tool called From the Desk of Donald J. Trump that features videos and statements by the former president but on Tuesday his spokesman Jason Miller said the page has been shuttered.
