There’s no one in the conservative movement who liberals hate more than Donald Trump. They’ve had a target on his back since the beginning.
But Donald Trump sent Leftists into tears with this bombshell announcement.
Since beating Hillary Clinton in 2016 to become president of the United States, there has been a coordinated effort to bring Donald Trump down.
The media played nearly 24/7 negative news stories on him – publishing hit piece after hit piece.
Democrats in Congress spent years claiming he was a Russian spy and trying to forcibly remove him from office.
And after the overreaction of the world to the events of January 6th, Donald Trump was censored from all major social media platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
But now Trump is set to make a major comeback and liberals are losing their minds.
Meta, formerly known as Facebook, stated on Wednesday that it will lift former President Trump’s suspension from Facebook and Instagram, calling the penalty imposed after January 6 “an extraordinary decision taken in extraordinary circumstances,” and vowed to implement “certain guardrails” on Trump in the future.
The business did not specify when Trump will be permitted to post on its platforms, but stated that it was sure that the “risk” he posed to public safety had gone. Twitter, which similarly suspended Trump during the Capitol incident, just reinstated him, though the former president has chosen to communicate using his own platform, Truth Social, thus far.
“We are bringing Mr. Trump back in the coming weeks with certain guardrails, applicable to any public figures suspended for certain violations during times of civil unrest,” a statement from Meta read.
The corporation defended its contentious 2021 decision, claiming that it never intended to participate in electoral debates and that the choice had been approved by an oversight body. In removing the suspension, Meta warned that Trump now risks “heightened penalties for repeat offenses – penalties that will apply to other public figures whose accounts are reinstated from suspensions related to civil unrest under our updated protocol” based on his previous activity on the platform.
“The penalties and potential restrictions we’ve put in place are a deterrent,” the statement read, warning that Trump could face another suspension ranging from one month to two years if he violates the company’s rules.
Put another way, Trump is allowed back on so long as he doesn’t tug at the muzzle they’re putting on his account.
According to the business, Trump cheered violent rioters at the Capitol, which he never did, earning him an indefinite suspension, and that after January 6, “the risks of allowing President Trump to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great.”
Trump has denied praising or encouraging rioters, and he only took to Twitter during the disturbance to warn his fans to disperse.
Both Facebook and Twitter have been chastised for suspending Trump while allowing a slew of international leaders with a history of human rights crimes to remain active.
Trump reacted to the lifting of the suspension on Truth Social.
“Such a thing should never again happen to a sitting president or anybody else who is not deserving of retribution,” Trump wrote.
Meta said its updated protocol specifically addresses content that does not technically violate the platform’s policies, but that “contributes to the sort of risk that materialized on January 6th, such as content that delegitimizes an upcoming election or is related to QAnon.”
“We may limit the distribution of such posts, and for repeated instances, may temporarily restrict access to our advertising tools,” the company said.
“This step would mean that content would remain visible on Mr. Trump’s account but would not be distributed in people’s Feeds, even if they follow Mr. Trump. We may also remove the reshare button from such posts, and may stop them being recommended or run as ads. In the event that Mr. Trump posts content that violates the letter of the Community Standards but, under our newsworthy content policy, we assess there is a public interest in knowing that Mr. Trump made the statement that outweighs any potential harm, we may similarly opt to restrict the distribution of such posts but leave them visible on Mr. Trump’s account.”
The company added that it was important for the public to see content from people like Trump, even if it was “distasteful or factually wrong.”
