Dates on Trump File reflect when something happens, not when it’s first reported.

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.

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. We are suspending his accounts for two years, effective from the date of the initial suspension on January 7 this year.

Nick Clegg, Facebook Vice President of Global Affairs

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.”
