Former President Donald Trump is looking to make a comeback on Facebook, whose account was suspended after the attack on Capitol Hill on January 6, 2021.

The news, first reported by NBC, was confirmed by CNN, which found a letter from Trump’s campaign team urging Meta to unblock his access to Facebook and Instagram.
“Donald J. Trump is a candidate for President of the United States. We believe that the ban on President Trump’s Facebook account has significantly distorted and inhibited public discourse.
Trump’s ban was initially indefinite, but Meta eventually announced in June 2021 that the situation would be reassessed in January 2023. The company is expected to announce its decision in the coming weeks, said Andy Stone, spokesman for Meta.
While Democrats fear a return to Trump on social media, Republicans believe maintaining this situation is a form of censorship that could harm the Republican nominee in the 2024 election.
Recall that in November 2022, the new head of Twitter, Elon Musk, unblocked the former American President’s account, but he still hasn’t tweeted.
