American celebrities have praised Twitter bosses for banning president Trump from the social media platform.

Mr Trump, who is due to leave office on 20 January, released a statement via the POTUS account saying he had been negotiating with other websites and promised a “big announcement soon”.

He added: “Twitter is not about FREE SPEECH. They are all about promoting a radical Left platform where some of the most vicious people in the world are allowed to speak freely.”

It was swiftly deleted.
