After a two-year suspension of former US President Donald Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts, he will be allowed to return to maintaining his accounts on these social networks. This statement was made by the company Meta.
In 2021, Trump was banned from being active on Facebook and Instagram indefinitely. This happened because of the riot on the Capitol in 2021. The attack on January 6, 2021, was widely condemned by American politicians and the international community. That day, supporters of the then US president stormed the US Capitol building, killing five people and forcing members of the US Congress to temporarily evacuate. As a result, it still did not prevent the certification of the election results.
On his Truth Social platform, Donald Trump, commenting on the recovery of his accounts, wrote that “this should never happen again to a sitting president or anyone who does not deserve retribution.”
