Facebook, Instagram unblock Trump’s accounts
The accounts of incumbent US President Donald Trump have been unblocked on Facebook and Instagram after a 14-day freeze issued after the riots at the Capitol Hill.
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg announced on January 7, the day after the storming of the Capitol, that Trump’s accounts will be suspended in order to facilitate a peaceful transition of power.
The last post on Trump’s Instagram page is a call for his supporters to gather in Washington DC for “the Save America March” on Wednesday, January 6, 2021.
The last posts on his Facebook account call on his supporters to remain peaceful and respect law enforcement personnel.
Earlier, Twitter, suspended the president’s personal account, and others associated directly with him, permanently “due to the risk of further incitement of violence.”
