President Donald Trump's calling out Facebook for banning a "NJ Women for Trump" account on the weekend before the election seems to have been effective, as Facebook restores it and declared the ban an "enforcement error."

Trump tweeted Sunday:

"Being restored immediately. @Facebook stated that they made an 'enforcement error.' Thank you!"

Trump had tweeted just after midnight a report of the account being blocked:

".@Facebook Put them back NOW!"

The co-director of the 29K member Facebook group Priscilla Confrey told NJ.com the ban came without warning, right before a pivotal election.

"It was a lot of work over the past year for a private group to just be shut down without notification," she told NJ.com.

"Three days before Election Day? That is absolutely appalling. I just think these companies, these social media groups, have too much power. They offer to you to open up a group on their social media platform, and you could have 30,000 members, and they shut it down without telling you anything."

This censorship of pro-Trump accounts is just a microcosm of a larger social media bias, including Twitter having blocked the New York Post report of Hunter Biden's laptop contents, which were damaging to Joe Biden's campaign.
