(FeaturedNews.com) – Following the reinstatement of former President Trump’s Twitter account after the social media platform was purchased by Elon Musk, Trump is now expected to make a comeback on two more major platforms. Meta, the parent company that owns both Facebook and Instagram, has announced that Trump’s accounts on both platforms will be reinstated.
Meta had originally banned Trump’s accounts for two years because of the Jan. 6, Capitol insurrection. At the time, the suspension had been deemed as “unprecedented.” However, in the following weeks, Trump’s accounts are going to be reinstated. However, there will be stricter penalties if the user guidelines are not followed after the reinstatement of the accounts.
On Wednesday, the company put out a public statement informing of its decision. Meta’s President for Global Affairs Nick Clegg also took to Twitter following the announcement to say that based on their assessment the risk caused by Jan. 6, 2021, had significantly decreased which is why Trump would be allowed to have his accounts reinstated.
Despite the fact that his accounts have been reinstated Trump has so far been reluctant about potentially returning to these social media platforms, and instead has continued to use his own platform Truth Social to post any comments he has.
Following the announcement that the accounts would be reinstated, Trump took to Truth Social to say that Facebook had lost billions of followers because of their decision to suspend his accounts. He also argued that this had never before happened to any sitting U.S. President.
