Former Trump campaign spokesman says the only reason the president stopped talking about the Capitol Riot is because Twitter and Facebook banned it.

A former spokesman for President Donald Trump claimed that the president could not denounce the rioters on Capitol Hill because he no longer had a platform to do so. J. Hogan Gidley appeared on Fox News on Sunday attacking the media for criticizing Trump’s silence while ignoring the fact that he is banned from Twitter and Facebook. Snapchat has announced that it will be banned from the platform indefinitely beginning January 20, and YouTube has suspended the president for seven days. “On the one hand, he should be censored by Big Tech and not be allowed to speak – he shouldn’t say anything either because it’s divisive,” said Gidley. “And then when he says nothing and can’t say anything because the platforms have pushed him aside, they say, ‘Where is the President, why don’t we hear from him?'” It’s all dishonest. . “On January 6, Trump told supporters gathered near the US Capitol to” fight like hell “before thousands of them stormed the grounds. Five people died as a result of the violence, and the House of Representatives charged Trump on January 13th for inciting a riot. Trump is now facing impeachment proceedings against the Senate. It took Trump 24 hours to publicly and properly condemn the rioters. Apart from a statement and a video that was released on January 13th The president was largely silent during the Department of Justice and FBI investigations into the attack. According to several reports, the president expected to suffer civil harm from the Capitol riot, despite not being the subject of criminal proceedings. Gidley’s allegation , Trump did not have a platform to criticize the rioters on Capitol Hill, was in the social en media ridiculed.
