Donald Trump could be back on Facebook in time for the presidential primaries – Gameingnow
Facebook has revisited Donald Trump’s “indefinite” suspension following a recommendation from the Oversight Board. The company said that Trump’s suspension should last two years, which would potentially allow him to return to the social network in time to run for president again in 2024.
“Given the gravity of the circumstances that led to Mr. Trump’s suspension, we believe his actions constituted a severe violation of our rules which merit the highest penalty available under the new enforcement protocols,” Facebook’s VP of Global Affairs Nick Clegg wrote in a blog post. “We are suspending his accounts for two years, effective from the date of the initial suspension on January 7 this year.”
After the two year period is up, Clegg said Facebook would “evaluate” the “risk to public safety” to determine if the suspension should be extended or lifted.
