Snapchat has banned US President Donald Trump from its platform for good, turning a temporary suspension into a permanent one while arguing the commander in chief used his account to “incite violence” and spread disinformation.

“In the interest of public safety, and based on [Trump’s] attempts to spread misinformation, hate speech, and incite violence, which are clear violations of our guidelines, we have made the decision to permanently terminate his account,” a spokesperson for Snap Inc., which owns Snapchat, told Axios on Wednesday.

The company said the decision came after it assessed what “long term action is in the best interest of our Snapchat community” following Trump’s “indefinite” suspension last week.
