Meta to reinstate Trump’s Facebook account
TECHDIGEST – Amid Republican discord, Trump insists he’s going to stay in politics
After two years, Meta has considered reinstating former president Donald Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts.
Facebook Global Affairs president, Nick Clegg, confirmed the decision on Meta’s blog, seen by Ripples Nigeria on Thursday.
Trump’s two-year suspension expired this month after his controversial ban in January 2021.

“Our determination is that the risk has sufficiently receded, and that we should therefore adhere to the two-year timeline we set out,” Clegg explained on the planned reinstatement.
Trump was banned from Meta platforms after the riot on January 6, 2021, at the Capitol where protesters made unsubstantiated assertions that the election had been rigged during the riots.
