Trump’s political death star is now fully active on social media, assuming he wants to reveal it in full.
After the former president regained access to his Twitter account last year, Meta announced today that they have recovered his Facebook and Instagram accounts. Metta said Trump no longer poses “a serious risk to public safety.”
Fox News reported:
Former President Donald Trump’s Facebook and Instagram pages were restored Thursday.

Metta, which owns and operates Facebook and Instagram, announced in a blog post last month that it would end Trump’s suspension on both social media platforms “in the coming weeks.”
Nick Clegg, Meta’s president of global affairs, said at the time that the company had determined that Trump was no longer a “serious risk to public safety” and that they had “guards” in place for his return.
The moratorium was initially introduced after the Capitol riots on January 6, 2021, when the platform said it would boot Trump “indefinitely” for his alleged involvement.
The decision to remove Trump from the platforms sparked backlash across the political spectrum and marked the first time a sitting president had been banned from Facebook. Trump was also banned from Twitter, YouTube and Snapchat at the time.
Twitter has reinstated Trump’s account, but the former president has not posted from the platform since his suspension.
This could prove critical to Trump’s re-election bid. Facebook’s ban has hurt Trump’s ability to raise money and share his political message.
The New York Times May 2021 again explained why Facebook is important to Trump’s political prospects:
Facebook has increasingly become one of the most important weapons in the arsenal of political campaigns, with its ability to turn small-dollar online fundraising numbers into millions, expand and acquire contact information, help build data into campaigns’ voter files, and provide the most sophisticated advertising platform available. .
Few campaigns have exploited Facebook’s potential for advertising and fundraising as aggressively as Mr. Trump’s. His successful 2016 campaign said the widespread use of Facebook allowed it to send millions of different, hyper-targeted political ads to small segments of the population.
“Facebook was the method,” Brad Parscale, Trump campaign manager in 2020 and digital director in 2016, told “60 Minutes” in 2017.
If Trump starts posting on Facebook and Twitter again, he will thrill his fans and trigger a leftist awakening with his fiery posts. His comeback could also help him win the presidency in 2024.
