The Social Media platforms which including Twitter Inc. and Facebook Inc. to shut down U.S. President Donald Trump’s accounts after his supporters stormed Capitol in the States on Wednesday.

Merkel through her chief spokesman, Steffen Seibert believes it should be the legislature that sets the rules governing the platforms, said Monday at a regular news conference in Berlin.
“The chancellor sees the complete closing down of the account of an elected president as problematic,” Seibert said.

The move followed similar action by Facebook. Founder and Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg said Trump’s most recent posts showed he intended to use his remaining time in office to undermine a peaceful and lawful transition of power
