‘I’m back!’: Donald Trump returns to Facebook after two year ban

After being banned from Facebook in the aftermath of the Capitol riot, Donald Trump has now returned to the platform.

The ex-US President wrote, “I’M BACK!” In a Friday post, he wrote “I’M BACK!”

Also included was an old video of the Republican Party politician speaking at a rally. He said: “Sorry to delay you, complicated business.”

The same clip was posted on YouTube by him. YouTube announced Friday that it too would be welcoming him back.


As it turns out, Mr Trump will host the first rally of his campaign to run in the US Presidential election in 2024.

As he prepares for the fight to become the Republican Party’s nominee, he will host the event in Waco on 25 March.

His last post to his Facebook page was on January 6, 2021. He wrote: “I ask for everyone at US Capitol to remain calm.”

Meta suspended the ban for two years. However, it announced in January that it would lift the ban.

Nick Clegg (Meta’s vice president for global affairs) wrote that the public should be able “to hear what their politicians have to say – the good and the bad – so they can make informed decisions at the poll box.”

In a blog post, the tech company stated that would add “new guardrails” in order to prevent “repeat offenders”, who violate its rules.

Trump will be blocked again “if necessary”

In the aftermath of the Capitol riots Mr Trump was also banned Twitter. However, his account has been restored by Elon Musk’s $44bn purchase of the site.

Mr Musk referred to the ban on Mr Trump’s account as a “mistake” and “morally wrong”.

The Tesla founder started a poll on the site. It was accompanied by the words Vox Populi and Vox Dei – a Latin phrase that means “the voice of God is the voice of the people” – asking users to vote for Mr Trump’s return.

He was reelected after more than 15,000,000 votes.

Trump, who has over 80 million followers, hasn’t yet used the account. He previously stated: “I don’t see any reason (returning)”.
