I think both that Trump should probably be allowed back on Twitter now and that America's political discourse is greatly improved by not having Trump on Twitter and am unsure how to resolve the fight happening in my brain on this q.

BREAKING: BBC has been banned in China. The report said the BBC was responsible for a 'slew of falsified reporting' on issues including Xinjiang and China's handling of coronavirus. It went on to say that 'fake news' is not tolerated in China
