THE Donald Trump has formally requested to be allowed back on Facebook, his campaign team announced today, calling on him not to “silence a presidential candidates”.
The former US president’s lawyer sent a letter to the founder of the platform Mark Zuckerbergasking him “a meeting to discuss expedited return” of Donald Trump on the social network.
“We think the suspension of President Trump’s Facebook account has fundamentally distorted and limited the public debate“, says Scott Gast in the letter sent yesterday Tuesday.
It urges the platform to “promote genuine dialogue, not silence a presidential candidate.”
The former Republican leadern was banned from the social media for two years after the attack launched by his supporters against the Capitol on January 6, 2021.
Facebook had estimated that Donald Trump he could not return until “the dangers to the safety of the public have disappeared”.
When asked today by AFP and relayed by the Athens News Agency, a representative of Meta, the network’s parent company, promised a decision on the fate of the former president “within the next few weeks.”
Trump already returned to Twitter on November 19, 2022, four days after announcing his candidacy for the 2024 presidential election. However, he has yet to post any messages on that account, communicating mostly through his own platform, Truth Social.
