Former US President Donald Trump delivered his first public address in nearly three months last night (Sunday), attacking the Democratic Party on its position toward Israel during Operation Guardian of the Walls in Gaza last month.

"Biden criticized Israel as the Jewish state was under attack by thousands of rockets [sponsored] by Iran. There was a time everyone supported Israel. Today it seems to be the unpopular approach," he lamented.

During his speech at the Republican Party convention in North Carolina, the former president accused Congress of "betraying Israel."

Regarding the ongoing debate on the origins of COVID-19, Trump stated the virus was released from a research lab in China: "The media, Democrats and 'experts' finally admit what I said 13 months ago. The evidence proves that the source of Coronavirus was a Chinese lab." "I couldn't allow myself to say this at the time," he continued.

Yesterday, Facebook announced that Trump's account would remain suspended for the coming two years. The former president's Instagram page will also be closed down over that time period.

Facebook's Vice‑President for Global Affairs and Communications, Nick Clegg, issued a statement saying that, "given the severity of the circumstances that led to Mr. Trump's suspension, we believe his actions constitute a serious violation of our rules, which deserve the highest punishment available according to the new enforcement protocols."

''We are suspending his accounts for two years, starting from the date of the initial suspension on January 7 of this year. If it is determined that there is still a serious risk to public safety, we will extend the limit for a specified period of time and continue to reassess the situation until the risk is reduced."

Clegg added that, "After the suspension is lifted, a forceful system of restrictions will be implemented that will get worse if Trump violates Facebook's policies again."

In response, Trump issued a statement with the help of his Political Action Committee, "Save America," stating that the Facebook ruling was an, "insult to the record number of 75 million people, and many others who voted for us. They must not be allowed to to avoid punishment. We will win. America can no longer tolerate this abuse."

Trump later issued another statement, strongly hinting of his intention to run for president again in 2024. "The next time I am in the White House there will be no more dinners with Mark Zuckerberg and his wife. It will be limited to business only."

Trump plans to head to a number of major rallies in early July, the first of which is schedule for Dallas, Texas. Following Trump's suspension from the social media platform, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a new law last month punishing high tech companies for closing down accounts belonging to politicians in a push to punish these firms for limiting freedom of speech.
