Parent social media company Meta said in a blog post on Wednesday that it has “put in place new rails to prevent repeat offences”.
Mr. Trump has said he will make another run for the White House in 2024, and Facebook and Instagram are key vehicles for political outreach and fundraising.
In November he regained access to Twitter, his once-favorite online megaphone, and a few weeks later he said he was in talks with Metta about returning. He is also using his own social network.
“If Mr. Trump posts additional infringing 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,” wrote Nick Clegg, Meta’s president of global affairs. Blog post.
The decision to ban Mr. Trump was polarizing for Meta, the world’s largest social media company, which had never blocked a head of state’s account for violating its content rules before the Trump suspension.
The company indefinitely suspended access to Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts after removing two of his posts during the Capitol Hill riots in January 2021, in which he repeated his false claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
