Donald Trump Gets Unbanned on Two Major Social Media as The 2024 Presidential Election Comes Close

Since he was prevented from communicating with his supporters on social media, Trump founded his own social media platform called Truth Social.

Former American President Donald Trump completed his major comeback on mainstream social media as Facebook and YouTube lifted their bans on his official account before the 2024 presidential elections.

Reason behind the ban

Following the horrific attack on the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, Donald Trump was banned by Facebook and YouTube. Due to his involvement in distributing false information about the US election, Trump was expelled from social media.

Statement from YouTube

After lifting the ban on his YouTube channel, the Alphabet-owned video platform posted saying, "Starting today, the Donald J. Trump channel is no longer restricted and can upload new content. We carefully evaluated the continued risk of real-world violence, while balancing the chance for voters to hear equally from major national candidates in the run-up to an election."

Previous Statement from Mark Zuckerberg

After banning Trump, Facebook's CEO Mark Zuckerberg stated that "we believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great," and that "his decision to use his platform to condone rather than condemn the actions of his supporters at the Capitol building has rightly disturbed people in the US and around the world."

Announcement of Return by Trump

Trump was shown in a CNN clip celebrating his victory against Hillary Clinton for president in 2016 and using the hashtags "I'M BACK!" in his Facebook and YouTube posts. The next segment of the video featured footage of Trump celebrating his election as president of the United States in the 2016 presidential contest against Hillary Clinton. 'Trump 2024' was the phrase that appeared at the end of the film, indicating that Trump intends to run for president once more in 2024.
