Meta Restores Trump’s Facebook and Instagram Accounts

Meta restored access to Former US President Donald Trump’s Facebook and Instagram handle confirmed Meta spokesperson Andy Stone on Thursday.

Trump’s social media access had remained suspended for two years following the deadly Capitol Hill riots in the United States on January 6, 2021.

Trump’s reinstatement comes weeks after Facebook’s landmark announcement that it would restore the former president’s access following the ban.

Meta previously said it would take a few weeks before Trump could access his account. The company suggested the delay was to give the company time to install guardrails on Trump’s account that could result in it being suspended again if he breaks the company’s rules.

With the reinstatement Trump will once again gain access to huge and powerful communications and fundraising platforms just as he ramps up his third bid for the White House.

His Twitter account was restored in November.
