Steve Bannon, former chief strategist of US President Donald Trump has been banned from Twitter after calling for the beheading of America’s top infectious-disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, and the FBI director, Christopher Wray.

He accused both men of not supporting President Trump enough in the 2020 election.

The micro-blogging social platform stated that @WarRoomPandemic account has been;

permanently suspended for violating the Twitter Rules, specifically our policy on the glorification of violence.

Mr. Bannon, who is currently on bail after pleading not guilty to charges of fraud and money laundering, made the comments during an online show, in which he criticised the two Federal officials for not supporting President Trump enough.

Bannon during a livestream of his online podcast show “War Room: Pandemic” expressed;

Now I actually want to go a step farther but I realize the president is a kind-hearted man and a good man. I’d actually like to go back to the old times of Tudor England. I’d put the heads on pikes. Right. I’d put them at the two corners of the White House as a warning to federal bureaucrats. You either get with the program or you are gone.

A video with the same message has also been removed from YouTube, according to media reports.

Steve Bannon was appointed chief executive of Trump’s successful presidential campaign in 2016. After Trump‘s inauguration, he became his chief strategist but clashed with others in the White House and was dismissed in August 2017.

Earlier this year, Bannon was arrested for allegedly defrauding donors to a Mexico border wall fundraising campaign.

He was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and another of conspiracy to commit money laundering.

Prosecutors said the online crowdfunding campaign known as “We Build the Wall” raised more than $25 million, which the defendants promised would go towards construction of a southern border barrier but was siphoned off instead.
