Donald Trump finally heard the word many thought would never come.
It sent an earthquake through the Washington and the media establishments.
Donald Trump had this jaw-dropping response to news of his reinstatement.
Trump fired off a press statement shortly after Facebook announced that it would lift his suspension after two years on January 7, 2023 by essentially guaranteeing he would run for president in 2024 and taking a shot at Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
“Next time I’m in the White House there will be no more dinners, at his request, with Mark Zuckerberg and his wife,” Trump declared. “It will be all business!”
Facebook indefinitely suspended Trump’s account on January 7, 2021 claiming Trump’s posts incited the events of January 6.
But Facebook’s Oversight Board recently ruled that Facebook had to pick between reinstating Trump immediately, permanently banning his account or handing Trump a time-limited suspension.
Facebook Vice President of Global Affairs Nick Clegg wrote that due to this decision, Facebook implemented new policies treating politicians like regular users—previously Facebook would not censor world leaders arguing their words were newsworthy—and Trump would live under these new rules.
“We are today announcing new enforcement protocols to be applied in exceptional cases such as this, and we are confirming the time-bound penalty consistent with those protocols which we are applying to Mr. Trump’s accounts,” Clegg wrote.
Clegg then announced Trump would be eligible for reinstatement on January 7, 2023.
“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,” Clegg added.
Trump blasted Facebook for accumulating so much power it could censor presidents and potentially keep them from running for office again.
“Facebook’s ruling is an insult to the record-setting 75M people, plus many others, who voted for us in the 2020 Rigged Presidential Election,” Trump exclaimed. “They shouldn’t be allowed to get away with this censoring and silencing, and ultimately, we will win. Our Country can’t take this abuse anymore!”
Tucker Carlson’s repeatedly attacked Facebook for achieving such monopolistic power that it can decide who is allowed to run for president.
Without being able to run ads, fundraise or communicate with voters, Trump would have no chance of competing on an equal footing with his Democrat opponent.
Trump being denied access to Facebook in the 2024 campaign would be the equivalent of Ronald Reagan not being able to run TV ads in a campaign.
Now the big question Facebook’s decision to make Trump eligible for reinstatement raises is if Facebook should be allowed to gain so much power that it can silence a president or decide who is allowed to seek the most powerful office in the world.
