After momentarily suspending the account Donald Trump from the platform after the episode of the invasion in the United States Congress, Snapchat today announced the decision to permanently remove the president from the app. In a statement, the company states that the decision was made aiming at “the best interest of the community”.

“In the interest of public security, and based on your attempts to spread misinformation, hate speech and incite violence, which are clear violations of our guidelines, we have made the decision to permanently close your account,” said a company spokesman. in a statement.

Last week, in addition to indefinitely suspending Trump’s account, Snapchat removed all content from the president’s account that appeared in the “Discover” section of the app. In an interview with CNBC, a company spokesman said that despite Trump being allowed to publish content, posts were quickly deleted.

Now, Trump’s account will be permanently held and will no longer be able to publish content.

Snapchat is yet another platform that makes the decision to restrict the Republican’s account after what happened in Congress last week. Twitter has also permanently suspended Trump, while other companies, such as Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch, have restricted the use and publications of the President of the United States.
