Fb on Monday introduced that it’s going to pause its contributions to political motion committees within the wake of the invasion of the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday by insurgents incited by President Donald Trump.
“Following final week’s terrible violence in D.C., we’re pausing all of our PAC contributions for no less than the present quarter, whereas we overview our insurance policies,” a spokesman for the corporate mentioned in an announcement.
Axios first reported Fb’s plans to halt political donations.
Fb is the newest firm to take a stance like this. It joins a listing that features Microsoft, JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs and Citigroup.
Though Fb has donated to each Republican and Democratic candidates in recent times, the corporate doesn’t seem to have contributed to any members of Congress who opposed the Electoral Faculty certification of President-elect Joe Biden.
