Instagram, Facebook, Twitter block Trump’s account after US Capitol violence

Washington: Instagram, Twitter Inc and Facebook Inc on Wednesday temporarily blocked the accounts of U.S. President Donald Trump.

As an unprecedented and violent situation unfolded at the US Capitol in Washington on Wednesday, several of US President Donald Trump’s supporters reiterated his claims that the recently-concluded presidential election was ‘stolen’, and demanded their ‘voices to be heard’.

The protesters managed to overpower the law enforcement officers and swarmed the House and Senate chambers, leading to the evacuation of several Congressional buildings.

Several lawmakers slammed Trump for inciting violence, with some calling for his immediate impeachment and removal.
