Trump banned from Facebook and Instagram until 2023
CNBC— Facebook announced on Friday that it will consider allowing former President Donald Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts to be reinstated in January 2023.
The social media platform will decide at that time if allowing Trump back on his accounts will cause a risk to public safety.
“We will evaluate external factors, including instances of violence, restrictions on peaceful assembly and other markers of civil unrest,” the company said in a blog post.
“If we determine that there is still a serious risk to public safety, we will extend the restriction for a set period of time and continue to re-evaluate until that risk has receded.”
This two-year suspension will stop Trump from using Facebook or Instagram until after the 2022 U.S. midterm elections.
Facebook suspended Trump’s accounts following the Jan. 6 insurrection on the U.S. Capitol. The decision was Facebook’s most aggressive action against Trump during his four-year term, as reported by CNBC.
“They shouldn’t be allowed to get away with this censoring and silencing, and ultimately, we will win,” Trump said in the statement. “Our Country can’t take this abuse anymore!”
