Facebook board upholds permanent ban of Trump

SAN FRANCISCO — Former US president Donald Trump won’t return to Facebook. The social network’s quasi-independent Oversight Board has voted to permanently ban his account after it was suspended four months ago for inciting violence that led to the deadly January 6 Capitol riot.

Trump has also been permanently banned from Twitter.
