The precedent set by Big Tech companies which banned President Donald Trump from their platforms "will be exploited by the enemies of freedom of speech around the world. In Russia as well. Every time when they need to silence someone, they will say: 'this is just common practice, even Trump got blocked on Twitter,' ” Russian opposition activist Alexei Navalny said.

Navalny was one of many world leaders who condemned the platforms that ousted Trump, The Epoch Times reported on Jan. 12.

At present, the president has been banned from Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Snapchat, Reddit, and Instagram.

Twitter permanently removed Trump’s account, saying that his recent posts were in violation of the “Glorification of Violence Policy.”
