“We will be reinstating Mr. Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts in the coming weeks,” Mr. Clegg wrote on Meta’s blog. “However, we are doing so with new guardrails in place to deter repeat offenses.”
“In the event that Mr. Trump posts further violating 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,” Mr. Clegg wrote. “Our updated protocol also addresses content that does not violate our Community Standards but that contributes to the sort of risk that materialized on January 6th, such as content that delegitimizes an upcoming election or is related to QAnon.”
“Such a thing should never again happen to a sitting President, or anybody else who is not deserving of retribution!” Mr. Trump wrote.
“Thank you to Truth Social for doing such an incredible job. Your growth is outstanding, and future unlimited!!!” he wrote in screaming all-capital letters.
The former president is poised to put his own social media platform, Truth Social, first, however.
According to paperwork filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission from his business partners in May 2022, he must, with limited exceptions, first post on Truth Social and then wait six hours before publishing on other social media platforms.
