Facebook announces a two-year continued suspension on Donald Trump’s official account following the company’s Oversight Board recommendation last month.
The suspension will likely be lifted on January 7, 2023, two years after his initial suspension and the attack on the Capitol. The date is convenient if Trump decides to run for president again, but Facebook says they will re-evaluate the situation before that date.
The Facebook Oversight Board recommended continued suspension in early May and gave the company six months to make a final decision.
Trump calls the decision censorship and an insult to the people “who voted for us in the 2020 Rigged Presidential Election.”
