Facebook And Instagram Block Donald Trump From Posting For 24 Hours
Facebook and Instagram have followed Twitter in banning Donald Trump from posting from his accounts.
A spokesperson for Facebook said: "We've assessed two policy violations against President Trump's Page which will result in a 24-hour feature block, meaning he will lose the ability to post on the platform during that time."
Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, said it will do the same.
It comes after the President released a video to his various social media accounts that again baselessly claimed the election was stolen.
In a video posted, the US President says: "I know your pain, I know you're hurt. We had an election that was stolen from us.
"It was a landslide election and everyone knows it - especially the other side, but you have to go home now. We have to have peace, we have to have law and order, we have to respect our great people in law and order - we don't want anybody hurt.
"It's a very tough period of time, there's never been a time like this where such a thing happened where they could take it away from all of us, from me, from you, and from our country.

"This was a fraudulent election, but we can't play into the hands of these people.
"We have to have peace, so go home. We love you, you're very special. You've seen what happens, you've seen the way that others are treated that are so bad and so evil.
"I know how you feel, but go home, and go home in peace."
The video was first restricted from being shared and then was pulled on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
Twitter was the first to lock Trump's account, however it was only for half the amount of time given by Facebook and Instagram.
It wrote: "As a result of the unprecedented and ongoing violent situation in Washington, D.C., we have required the removal of three @realDonaldTrump Tweets that were posted earlier today for repeated and severe violations of our Civic Integrity policy.
"This means that the account of @realDonaldTrump will be locked for 12 hours following the removal of these Tweets. If the Tweets are not removed, the account will remain locked."
The social media sites said the President made two violations that resulted in the ban.
