Former President Donald Trump is all the way back.
On Tuesday, Meta, the social media parent company over Facebook and Instagram, announced that Trump can have his accounts back.
As The Free Press reported last week, Trump’s legal team was petitioning billionaire Mark Zuckerberg’s company to get Trump reinstated.
Like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram permanently dumped Trump as a result of the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol.

But forever turned out not to be as long as liberals had hoped.
On Wednesday, Trump said on Truth Social, “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! THANK YOU TO TRUTH SOCIAL FOR DOING SUCH AN INCREDIBLE JOB. YOUR GROWTH IS OUTSTANDING, AND FUTURE UNLIMITED!!!”
Twitter went first. Under new owner Elon Musk, the platform allowed Trump back on in November.
Trump had 88 million followers when he got the boot from Twitter’s former management. But he has yet to resume tweeting since regaining his account. Trump has said he will stick with Truth Social, the platform he created once evicted from Twitter.
Trump had 34 million followers on Facebook when that platform gave him the heave-ho.
Meta President of Global Affairs Nick Clegg declared that Trump’s reinstatements would be effective “in the coming weeks.”

Clegg added that Meta would impose tougher content moderation guidelines on repeat offenders that include “heightened penalties,” which “will apply to other public figures whose accounts are reinstated from suspensions related to civil unrest under our updated protocol.”
“In the event that Mr. Trump posts further violating content,” Clegg continued, “the content will be removed and he will be suspended for between one month and two years, depending on the severity of the violation.”
