The immediate past president of the United State, Donald Trump has thrown his weight behind the Buhari-led government over the recent ban placed on micro blogging platform, Twitter.
While many seems to be against the Nigerian government’s ban on Twitter, the Trump have displayed his total support for such decision. He did this with open arms and also call on other nations in the world to follow suit.
Donald Trump, whose Twitter account was suspended indefinitely as a president, said that in the meantime, “competitors will emerge and take hold. Who are they to dictate good and evil if they themselves are evil? Perhaps I should have done it while I was President. But Zuckerberg kept calling me and coming to the White House for dinner telling me how great I was. 2024?”
Recall Trump was also suspended by Facebook while in office. His suspension from Facebook remains the highest ever for a public figure.
It is interesting to see a former president of the United States endorse Nigeria’s ban of Twitter; especially one who was notorious for his tweets during his time as president. With Trump’s endorsement, do you think the Nigeria has won a major supporter?
