Trump will be able to return to Facebook and Instagram

Social media giant Meta announced on Wednesday that it will “end the suspension” of Donald Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts in the coming weeks, two years after the former US president was banned after the Capitol was stormed. “The public needs to be able to hear what politicians are saying so they can make informed choices,” Nick Clegg, Meta’s head of international relations, said in a statement. “But that doesn’t mean there aren’t limits on what people can say on our platform. When there is a risk of harm in the real world – a high risk that justifies Meta’s meddling in public debate – we act,” he said. The 2024 Republican presidential nominee was kicked off the social media platform on January 7, 2021, while still in office, for cheering his supporters the day before during an attack on Congress in Washington. Last week, the former president formally asked for permission to return to Facebook. The politician had already been re-entranted to Twitter on November 19, 2022, and has not shared any content since.
