Meta restores Trump’s account, ending 2-year suspension


(MENAFN) Facebook parent Meta stated Wednesday it will restore former President Donald Trump 's personal account in the coming weeks, after a two-year ban it forced because of the Jan. 6 insurrection.

The firm shared in a blog post it is adding “new guardrails” to make sure there are no “repeat offenders” who break its guidelines, even if they are political candidates or world presidents.

“The public should be able to hear what their politicians are saying — the good, the bad and the ugly — so that they can make informed choices at the ballot box,” on the words of Nick Clegg, Meta’s vice president of global affairs.

Clegg also said that when there is a “clear risk” to real-world harm, Meta will mediate.

“In the event that Mr. Trump posts further violating content, the content will be removed and he will be suspended for between one month and two years, depending on the severity of the violation,” he added.
