German Chancellor Angela Merkel believes that the blocking of accounts of U.S. President Donald Trump on social networks is problematic. This was reported by The Telegraph with reference to the official representative of the German government Steffen Seibert.

"The chancellor finds it problematic that the president's accounts have been blocked," Seibert said.

According to him, "the federal government is convinced that social network operators bear great responsibility for political communication not being poisoned by hatred, by lies, and by incitement to violence."

At the same time, Berlin believes that Trump has the right to freedom of speech under the current law.

As we reported earlier,  the U.S. presidential race winner Joe Biden has no intentions to launch the procedure of Trump's impeachment.

"He did not weigh the negotiations on the 25th amendment, and his opinion about the impeachment is the same," the sources said. 

According to them, currently, Biden prefers to focus on taking power, which should happen in 13 days.
