Former U.S. President Donald Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts were restored on Thursday, a Meta spokesperson confirmed to CNN.
Trump can now resume posting on social media accounts.
This step comes weeks after Facebook’s landmark announcement that it would restore the former president’s access, cancelling a two-year ban in the wake of the Jan. 6, 2021 insurrection.
In previous remarks, Meta said it would take a few weeks before Trump could access his account.
A current Trump adviser said the ex-leader has never used Facebook in the way he used Twitter, which became his primary medium for communicating with his political base as president before he was removed from the platform in the wake of the January 6 attack.
The person revealed that the Trump campaign would leap at the opportunity to resume using his likeness in its Facebook advertisements.
“It is the most important vehicle for fundraising and for reaching a lot of people in the persuadable audience,” the adviser said.
