Donald Trump

ONLINE KHANS: Trump should sign contract to behave before Facebook ban lifts, says Khan

DONALD Trump should be made to sign a good behaviour contract before being allowed to rejoin Facebook, loony London Mayor Sadiq Khan has said.

Mr Khan, who repeatedly clashed with the former president while he was in the White House, accused online firms of monetising hate by promoting harmful content.

Mr Trump’s Facebook and Instragram accounts were suspended for two years in June 2021 for posts stoking the violence ahead of the Capitol riot in Washington DC.

At a fringe meeting at the Labour conference in Liverpool, Mr Khan said: “If it is the case that Donald Trump is a presidential candidate, if it is the case that he is applying to go back on Facebook, Facebook should have an agreement, a contract.”

He added: “He has got to sign up to things he is agreeing to do and not do as a term of taking part on the platform.”

But he said that even if Mr Trump was not on Facebook personally, proxies for him would still be active.

At the event, organised by the Antisemitism Policy Trust, Mr Khan also set out the scale of online abuse directed at him.

He said he was branded a “terrorist” by a passer-by while carrying out an interview recently, saying that kind of abuse in the real world had its origin online.

Mr Trump, he said, was “good for Facebook’s business”.

“This is why, in the absence of them regulating themselves, the Government has got to regulate companies like Facebook and Twitter and that is why the online harms Bill is so important because hate has been monetised.”

The Online Safety Bill has been paused since Liz Truss took office, who is making changes so it will protect free speech.
