Meta has brought back former President Donald Trump’s Facebook presence after a 24-month ban. The ban was put in place due to his alleged support of violent acts during the Capitol Hill disturbance on January 6, 2021.
Meta declared the revival of Trump’s Facebook and Instagram profiles last month, with the Facebook account being accessible as of Thursday. This development by Meta holds great importance for Trump’s presidential bid, as his Facebook and other accounts boast a following of millions of individuals. His Twitter account which was restored a few months back was also suspended in January 2021, following the events at the US Capitol on January 6 of that year.
The suspension was imposed due to concerns about further incitement of violence. But after Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter, Trump was back on the platform but he doesn’t use Twitter often now. How Trump uses the platform to his advantage in his political struggle will be seen in upcoming elections.
