Mr. Trump was barred from Facebook and Instagram, which both operate as part of the Meta company, following the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol. The company later extended the restrictions on his account.
Meta president Nick Clegg told Politico his company would maintain the timeline for revisiting the ban in January rather than lift it before the November elections.
Other tech companies such as Twitter and Google’s YouTube have also restricted Mr. Trump’s access, with Twitter enacting a permanent ban.
The paperwork filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission from Mr. Trump’s business partners said he must first post on Truth Social and then wait six hours before publishing elsewhere with exceptions for messages about political fundraising, get-out-the-vote efforts and other political messages.
