Trump’s page returns to Facebook, Instagram without warning, surprised fans respond

Former President Donald Trump’s supporters were thrilled yesterday when his Facebook and Instagram accounts were reinstated, only to find out that he is still banned from the platforms. 

The internet went wild when the two verified pages became public on Wednesday. Supporters blew up the comments section of the most recent post on Trump’s  page from January 6th:

I absolutely love you President Donald Trump!!! ” wrote one person.

“Mr. President with all due respect ” We The People” are completely fed up with the treasonous corruption of the leftist fools in Government,” another commented.


Some users’ elation was met with tepid disbelief as what initially was interpreted as Trump’s reinstatement was quickly admonished. 

A Facebook spokesperson quickly shut down the speculation of the former president’s return tweeting, “No. Nothing about the status of President Trump’s presence on our platform has changed. He remains indefinitely suspended.”

Coincidentally, the pages’ reinstatement came on the same day that the former president’s “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump,”shut down. The blog was essentially something that users could subscribe to to receive Trump’s latest statements directly to their inbox.

The shutdown of Trump’s blog, according to senior Trump advisor Jason Miller, comes as he prepares to join another social media platform. 

In May, Facebook’s oversight board upheld the company’s decision to ban Trump from the platform, however it found that a permanent ban was inappropriate and “requested that Facebook reach a “proportionate response that is consistent with the rules that are applied to other users of the platform.”

The board also concluded that: “Within six months of this decision, Facebook must reexamine the arbitrary penalty it imposed on January 7 and decide the appropriate penalty.” The deadline for that decision will be November of 2021.

Team Trump has been teasing the launch of their own social media platform since the January ban on the president’s social media accounts, but it is unclear when and if it will launch or if Trump will join another existing platform.
