Mexican President Andres calls Zuckerberg 'arrogant' over blocking Trump from Facebook


The Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has called and blasted the Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg as “arrogant” for statements he made on Thursday condemning Trump’s role in inciting the violence on Capitol Hill and indefinitely blocking from Facebook.


Lopez Obrador said he had read the “Facebook owner’s” comments with alarm.


“I felt he was very self-important and very arrogant,” Lopez Obrador said during his daily news conference adding that it was “bad sign” that private companies could “censor” opinion.


“A court of censorship like the Inquisition to manage public opinion,” he said. “This is really serious.”


More so the Democrats are discussing whether to move forward with the quick impeachment of President Donald Trump if his Cabinet does not try to remove him first.


The storming of the US Capitol on Wednesday by supporters of Trump has prompted calls for his removal from office before President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in on January 20.


Trump has taken a more conciliatory tone – promising a smooth transfer of power and calling for “healing and reconciliation”.


The chaotic scenes unfolded after Trump addressed thousands of protesters and repeated unfounded claims that the election was stolen from him. Five people died and 64 were arrested as protesters forced their way into the building.
