Facebook parent Meta is reinstating former President Donald Trump’s personal account after two-year suspension.
The company said in a blog post Wednesday it is adding “new guardrails” to ensure there are no “repeat offenders” who violate its rules.
Trump’s spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the decision. He was suspended on Jan. 7, a day after the deadly 2021 insurrection.
Other social media companies also kicked him off their platforms, though he was recently reinstated on Twitter after Elon Musk took over the company.
