Extend Trump’s Facebook ban indefinitely, or risk more people’s lives

On Friday Facebook extended it’s ban on Donald Trump, saying they’ll reevaluate in two years.   Why does it matter? Because social media is just as powerful as traditional media.

Trump paid no taxes in 10 of the last 15 years? Not surprised.

“That makes me smart.” That’s what then-candidate Donald Trump said during a presidential debate in which Hillary Clinton accused him of not paying taxes. Back then it was almost funny. It was Trump being Trump, because nobody, including Trump, believed he would actually win. But now he’s the president, he’s responsible for running the government…
