On Thursday, Meta reinstated former President Donald Trump on their Facebook and Instagram social media platforms.
Meta announced in January that it intended to reinstate Trump’s accounts, a full two years after they claimed he was suspended for violating their terms of service.
Meta President of Global Affairs Nick Clegg wrote in a statement, “Two years ago, we took action in what were extreme and highly unusual circumstances. We indefinitely suspended then-US President Donald Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts following his praise for people engaged in violence at the Capitol on January 6, 2021.”
On Facebook, Trump’s last post was from January 6 and reads, “I am asking for everyone at the U.S. Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence! Remember, WE are the Party of Law & Order – respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you!”
Clegg added, “we will be reinstating Mr. Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts in the coming weeks. However, we are doing so with new guardrails in place to deter repeat offenses.”
After being removed from Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter Trump created his own social media network, Truth Social, and has not yet become active on the sites that have reinstated him.
