Trump is winning!
Former President Donald Trump has just been allowed back social media giants Facebook and Instagram according to their parent company Meta.
According to The Hill, Meta served former President Donald Trump an unnecessary two-year ban following the January 6th Capitol riot and it was a suspension that the company referred to as “unprecedented.”
Now, within the next few weeks, both Facebook and Instagram will unlock Trump’s social media accounts but they said they will apply heightened penalties on him if he commits any future offenses.
Meta’s President for Global Affairs Nick Clegg noted that they needed to determine if the public risk that was caused from January 6th had settled down enough to finally let Trump back onto their platforms.
“Our determination is that the risk has sufficiently receded, and that we should therefore adhere to the two-year timeline we set out,” Meta said.
Now Trump has been allowed to get back on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
Trump responded to the news of Meta letting him back onto the platform and blasted them saying, “FACEBOOK, which has lost Billions of Dollars in value since ‘deplatforming’ your favorite President, me, has just announced that they are reinstating my account. Such a thing should never again happen to a sitting President, or anybody else who is not deserving of retribution!”
It is unclear if Trump will actually get back on these platforms now that he has his own social media company called Truth Social. However, if Trump plans on winning in 2024 he knows he will have to spread his message on these popular social media sites one way or another.
