Facebook has referred the final decision of Trump's account suspension to its oversight board, an external institution set up to review the company's "most difficult and significant decisions." The board's final decision can not "be overruled by CEO Mark Zuckerberg or anyone else at Facebook."

"We believe our decision was necessary and right," so Nick Clegg, Facebook's vice president of global affairs and communications. "Given its significance, we think it is important for the board to review it and reach an independent judgment on whether it should be upheld."
