Facebook parent company Meta announced that it allow former President Donald Trump back on Facebook and Instagram two years after his initial suspension. 

In a Wednesday blog post, Meta announced that it would reinstate Trump’s accounts sometime over the next few weeks. If Trump once again violates Meta’s content policies, the company said that his accounts would be subject to additional suspensions, ranging from one month to two years, “depending on the severity of the violation.”

“As a general rule, we don’t want to get in the way of open, public and democratic debate on Meta’s platforms – especially in the context of elections in democratic societies like the United States,” Clegg said in Wednesday’s blog post. “The public should be able to hear what their politicians are saying – the good, the bad and the ugly – so that they can make informed choices at the ballot box.”

Trump was banned from Facebook and Instagram following the deadly January 6th attack on the Capitol two years ago.

Trump’s Twitter account was reinstated last November.
