Facebook parent Meta is reinstating former President Donald Trump’s personal account after a two-year suspension following the Jan. 6 uprising.

The company said in a blog post on Wednesday that it was adding “new safeguards” to ensure there were no “repeat offenders” who broke its rules.

β€œIn the event that Mr. Trump posts further violating content, the content will be removed and he will be suspended for between one month and two years, depending on the severity of the violation,” said Meta, who is based in Menlo Park, in California. , said.

Trump’s spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the decision.

He was suspended on January 7, a day after the deadly 2021 uprising. Other social media companies have also kicked him off their platforms, although he was recently reinstated on Twitter after Elon Musk took over the business. He didn’t tweet.

Banned from mainstream social media, Trump has relied on his own, much smaller Truth Social site, which he launched after being blocked on Twitter.
