Trump ‘ballistic’ over Twitter ban as Republican fury grows over censorship

 Donald Trump was reportedly left “ballistic” after Twitter permanently suspended him as the US president’s allies accused the social media company of Orwellian censorship.

Locked out of his favourite mode of mass communication and facing mounting calls for his removal from office, Mr Trump was isolated and silent in the White House on Saturday.

The online crackdown also saw the Trump campaign’s Twitter account suspended and the YouTube channel for a podcast from Steve Bannon, Mr Trump’s ex-chief strategist, disabled.

Meanwhile, concerns are growing that the January 20 inauguration when Joe Biden is sworn in as president could be disrupted after Trump supporters called online for a “Million Militia March”.

Democrats next week are set to start the process of impeaching Mr Trump for encouraging the mob which stormed the US Capitol, with likely success in the House of Representatives.

On Saturday night Congress said impeachment could begin on Monday after House Democrats reached 180 cosponsors for the move.
