Trump admits he has no interest in returning to Facebook

Former US President Donald Trump has no interest in restoring his Facebook account. He said this on Saturday while speaking at the North Carolina Republican convention. The broadcast is hosted by C-Span television channel.

“They [Facebook] say they might let me come back in two years. I’m not really interested in that”, – he said in his second major public appearance since leaving office.

On Friday, Facebook executives revised their decision to block Trump’s accounts indefinitely; the Republican will be able to restore his accounts after two years if certain conditions are met. If Trump violates the social network’s rules again after the blocking is lifted, he will be “subject to a strict system of rapidly escalating sanctions, up to and including the complete removal of his pages and accounts”.

Following the riots in Washington on 6 January, Facebook blocked Trump from posting on its social media accounts. The blocking was originally supposed to last until Trump’s termination at noon on 20 January, but has since been extended. In early May, Facebook’s oversight board upheld the decision to block the accounts, but recommended that the company reconsider the indefinite nature of the blocking within six months.
