Trump Returns To Facebook, YouTube After Reinstatement

New York: Former US President Donald Trump is now back on Facebook and YouTube two years after he was banned.

He has returned to the tech platforms he used to power his political rise until he was cut off following January 6, 2021, attack on Congress by his followers, according to the news agency Reuters.

In a video posted by CNN, the posts on his Facebook page and YouTube channel were titled ‘I’M BACK!’. The footage was announcing Trump’s election as president in the 2016 race against Hillary Clinton, it then fades to a ‘Trump 2024’ screen.

“Sorry to keep you waiting,” Trump says in the video.

The 76-year-old Republican leader — who is running for president again — has been unable to post any content for his 34 million Facebook followers and 2.6 million YouTube subscribers.

The platforms benched Trump days after the January 6, 2021 insurrection, when a mob of his supporters seeking to halt the certification of his election defeat to Joe Biden stormed the US Capitol in Washington.
