Former president President of the United States, Donald John Trump has praised President Buhari for banning Twitter.
In his latest statement, the former president congratulated the Nigerian president for upping his game to ban the social media platform.
‘Congratulations to the country of Nigeria, who just banned Twitter because they banned their President. Who are they to dictate good and evil if they themselves are evil? Trump said and has urged other nations to follow suit.
Trump was banned from Twitter and Facebook after the Capitol riot that occurred in January 2021.
According to the president, he had wanted to ban Twitter and Facebook but CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg kept calling him and coming to the White House for dinner praising him, Donald Trump how great he was.
‘I should have done it while I was president. Zuckerberg kept calling me and coming to the White House for dinner how great I was. 2024? Trump revealed.
The big question is the 2024 question mark, ending his statement. Is the president trying to say he’ll ban these platforms when he’s voted into power. Mr. Buhari and his government banned Twitter days ago after Twitter deleted his tweet for violating rules. The government has since banned the app and restricted all citizens from using the app but most Nigerians quickly switched to Virtual Private Networks, VPN so they can still use the app.
