Donald Trump’s Instagram and Facebook accounts are to be reinstated after the former US president was booted off them for incendiary posts.
Social media giant Meta, which owns the two sites, made the announcement after Mr Trump had been kept off them for two years.
Nick Clegg, president of global affairs at Meta, said he will be brought back “in the coming weeks” and with “new guardrails in place to deter repeat offenses.”
Trump celebrated the announcement on his social media platform Truth Social, writing: “FACEBOOK, which has lost Billions of Dollars in value since ‘deplatforming’ your favorite President, me, has just announced that they are reinstating my account. Such a thing should never again happen to a sitting President, or anybody else who is not deserving of retribution!”
