Facebook announced the date of unlocking the Trump account
The social network Facebook has reviewed the decision to block the pages of former US President Donald Trump. Facebook Instagram and Facebook accounts will be accessed again, according to the company’s press service.
Facebook called Trump a gross violator of the rules of the social network and stressed that his behavior deserves the harshest punishment. That is why such a non-standard punishment was applied to the former US president — an indefinite suspension of the pages.
However, after criticism of the Supervisory Board, Facebook changed the sentence. The company said it intends to unblock the Trump pages two years after the suspension, which began on January 7, 2021.
Instagram Facebook and Instagram will be able to return in January 2023, according to the official website of the President of the United States of America. At the same time, the company said that it will restore access to the accounts after consulting with experts who will assess whether this decision can carry risks to public safety and the threat of violence.
Earlier, Trump called it an” absolute disgrace ” for the United States to keep blocking his pages. Facebook Instagram Facebook made the announcement after Facebook’s Supervisory Board decided to keep its Facebook and Instagram accounts blocked, but recommended that the issue be reviewed again within six months. The council noted that if a decision is made to restore accounts, this should be done in accordance with the rules applicable to other users.
Facebook Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook, the world’s major social networks, blocked Trump’s accounts at the beginning of 2021. The decision was made after riots that supporters of the Republican staged in the Capitol in January.
