    Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates said social-media silencing such as Twitter Inc.’s lifetime ban on former President Donald Trump risk leading to even more divisiveness in the U.S.

    Trump said many things questioning the legitimacy of the 2020 election “that are corrosive,” Gates said on “Fox News Sunday.” “But the idea that you end up with a lifetime ban -- that, it seems like we should discuss.”

    “We don’t want to par ion and have a social network for one party and another social network,” he said. “We want to have a common base where we’re exchanging ideas and thoughts.”

    Twitter permanently suspended the realDonaldTrump account last month, citing “the risk of further incitement of violence,” after Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 in a bid to disrupt the Senate’s certification of Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election.

    Facebook also suspended Trump’s account while stopping short of declaring the suspension permanent.

    “There’s got to be some way that, between the government and the well-meaning actors, we draw the line so we keep the open debate without the corrosive parts,” Gates said.

    Trump is the corrosive part.

    Following rules in AZ

    Arizona leads country with ‘voter suppression’ bills, ins ute finds.

    Arizona leads the country with 19 Republican-proposed bills that would place restrictions on voters, according to the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law, a nonpartisan law and policy ins ute.

    Some of the 19 GOP-backed proposals would limit or eliminate no-excuse absentee ballots, make it harder to obtain an absentee ballot, impose stricter ID requirements and even give the legislature the right to pick presidential electors despite election results.
