Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has commented publicly on his company's recent decision to permanently ban President Trump from the platform.

Dorsey wrote in a series of tweets Wednesday that while he believes the move was necessary, he does not like deciding to ban an account and believes doing so presents problems.

🔦 Trump was banned from the platform following riots in Washington, D.C., that Twitter believed were incited by his rhetoric. He has also been suspended from Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube. His campaign has also been blocked from sending emails by its service provider.
