Donald Trump is back
Donald J. Trump's Facebook and Instagram accounts have been reinstated following a two-year suspension imposed after the Capitol riots of 2021. The ban was imposed after Mr. Trump praised individuals involved in the violence at the Capitol. The parent company, Meta, has stated that if Mr. Trump breaches the rules again, he may face another suspension ranging from one month to two years. Despite the reinstatement, posts where he baselessly contests the results of the 2020 US Presidential election still remain on both platforms.
Messages of welcome have flooded his recent posts as supporters rejoice his return. The former President was initially banned indefinitely, but the decision was later modified to a two-year suspension after the Oversight Board criticised the indefinite penalty.
At the time, Mr. Trump called the ban an "insult" to his millions of supporters who voted for him in the 2020 Presidential Election.
Nick Clegg, President of Global Affairs for Meta, emphasised that the public should have access to hearing what their politicians are saying and a review showed that Mr. Trump's accounts no longer posed a serious risk to public safety. The former President, who announced his candidacy for the 2024 Presidential Election in November, has 34 million followers on Facebook and over 23 million on Instagram.
