Former President Donald Trump will never be allowed on Facebook or Instagram again, following a decision by Facebook’s ‘Oversight Board’.
The decision means that the indefinite suspension given to Trump following the Capitol attack of January 6, does not have to be reversed.
Going forward, Facebook and Instagram will now have 90 days to act on this decision, unless in the case of exceptional circumstances.
Facebook’s Oversight Board is a group established by Facebook with the purpose of reviewing its content decisions. In February, it was announced that the group would be looking into Trump’s suspension and would be taking public comments on the matter.
