Trump Plots Return To Mainstream Social Media

 January 19, 2023

Well, it could be happening.

A few years after being banned from social media in one of the most outrageous overreaches in censorship history, Donald Trump may be gearing up for a return to Twitter and Facebook.

NBC News is reporting that Trump has asked Facebook to unblock his account, and according to John Nolte of Twitter says that Trump "intends to resume tweeting."

"We believe that the ban on President Trump’s account on Facebook has dramatically distorted and inhibited the public discourse," Trump's team wrote in a letter to Meta, Facebook's parent company.

Shortly after acquiring Twitter, Elon Musk followed through on his promise to reinstate Trump's Twitter account. Donald has yet to make an appearance back on the platform, so far choosing to remain on his own social media site, Truth Social.

Representative Adam Schiff, a Democrat, spoke out against Trump's return to social media:

Trump has continued to post harmful election content on Truth Social that would likely violate Facebook’s policies, and we have every reason to believe he would bring similar conspiratorial rhetoric back to Facebook, if given the chance.
