Chancellor Angela Merkel believes that the decision of the social media giants to permanently block Donald Trump’s accounts is problematic as freedom of expression should not be determined by such bosses of the online platform, her spokesman said on Monday.

« The fundamental right to freedom of expression is a fundamental right of elementary importance, and this fundamental right can be impaired, but by the law and within the framework established by the legislature, not according to the decision of the management of social media platforms » said Merkel’s spokesman Steffen Seibert.

« From this point of view, the Chancellor considers it problematic that the US President’s accounts have been permanently blocked. »

He said that lies or incitement to violence also « very much problematic « , but the way to deal with them should be that the state draws up a legal regulatory framework.

Complete blocking of views by locking the account is a step too far, the spokesman said, but added that he has supported social media measures in recent months to flag false claims.

Merkel had said she was « Angry and sad » when Trump’s supporters stormed the US Capitol.

She had also accused Trump of stirring up the unrest by refusing to allow Joe Biden to defeat the elections.
