The atrocities at the Capitol yesterday were four years in the making. It’s been four years of Trump condoning, justifying and CELEBRATING violent acts. FOUR YEARS. A 12 hour suspension is not enough @jack. RT to save democracy. #BanTrumpSaveDemocracy

Sacha Baron Cohen hailed Twitter and Facebook’s decision to ban President Trump claiming that it is “the most important moment in the history of social media.”
Cohen has also been a vocal anti-Trumper and has called for social media giants to end free speech for conservatives and others who exhibit center-right ideals.
