(850 WFTL) – Former President Donald Trump will be allowed back on Facebook and Instagram more than two years after he was banned.
Trump was removed from the platforms following the attacks on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. Facebook said it took action because they believe Trump was “praising” those who engaged in violence at the Capitol.
Nick Clegg, Met’s president of Global Affairs, said that Trump’s accounts will be reinstated in a few weeks.
Trump announced he is running for president in 2024. Facebook says it believes the public should be allowed to hear from politicians so they can make informed choices.
