Meta restores Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts

Donald Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts were restored, allowing the former president to once again post on the social media platforms, a Meta spokesperson confirmed to CNN.

As of Thursday afternoon, Trump had not yet resumed posting on the accounts.

Trump’s reinstatement comes weeks after Facebook’s landmark announcement that it would restore the former president’s access following a two-year ban in the wake of the Jan. 6, 2021 insurrection.

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.
