Facebook, the world's most popular social media site, has banned former US President Donald Trump until 2023. From now on, the organization will no longer give concessions to influential politicians for cheating or harassing posts. Nick Clegg, Facebook's vice president of global relations, confirmed the information.

"We believe that Donald Trump's actions are in flagrant violation of our principles, which are highly punishable under the new protocol," he said in a statement.

"We have been suspending his (Trump's) account for two years, with effect from the initial suspension on January 7 this year," the Facebook official said.

Trump's Facebook and Instagram accounts were shut down in January after he posted multiple provocative posts in support of the capitol riots in the United States.

But an observer board formed by Facebook last month criticized the suspension of Trump's account indefinitely. They support the suspension of the former president's account, but say the process is not the right.

The board called on Facebook to review the issue within six months to determine a proportional response to the policies applied to other users and to take fair action.
