President Banned – level 1

15-01-2021 07:00

The US president, Donald Trump, uses Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram a lot. He writes his ideas and opinions on many things.

Now Trump has a problem. Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram ban him. He cannot use the platforms. They say that Trump is dangerous.

Trump has a big effect on people. He says that the election of the new president, Joe Biden, is not fair. Trump does not believe that Biden is really the winner.

Many people believe this. They are very angry. They attack the US Capitol last week. It is an important government building.

Trump cannot use his Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram until January 20 or later. Joe Biden starts his job on January 20.

Difficult words: opinion (what somebody thinks), ban (to officially stop or make illegal), platform (a social media system that people use).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
