Donald Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts will be reopened in the coming weeks, announced this Wednesday by Meta, the company that owns the two social networks.
Profiles of the former President of the United States had been suspended for two years, after Trump praised people involved in the attack on the Capitol, on January 6, 2021.
Last week, the former US President had asked Facebook to reactivate the account. And the answer came quickly. Meta says that the risk to public safety that existed has decreased.
On Facebook, the former President has 34 million followers and on Instagram 23 million, numbers that will be important for publicizing and raising funds for his re-candidacy for the White House in 2024, announced in November.
Meta promises to be attentive to recurrences: if Trump publishes more content that violates the rules of the platforms, “the content will be removed and the account will be suspended for a period of one month to two years, depending on the severity of the violation”, reported Nick Clegg , one of those responsible for the company.
Donald Trump had already been readmitted to Twitter in November last year, but he never returned to active on the platform. It is recalled that, after being blocked on the main social networking platforms, Donald Trump created his own network, Truth Social, which he has used to communicate and interact with his audience.
