Donald Trump’s 2024 campaign is preparing to return to Facebook and Twitter where he has a combined 122 million followers, NBC News reports.
The former president’s campaign formally petitioned Meta, which owns Facebook and Instagram, Tuesday in a letter.
“We believe that the ban on President Trump’s account on Facebook has dramatically distorted and inhibited the public discourse,” Trump’s campaign wrote in a letter obtained by the network.
The campaign also requested a “meeting to discuss President Trump’s prompt reinstatement to the platform.”
Meta said it “will announce a decision in the coming weeks in line with the process we laid out.”
Twitter reinstated Trump in November after Elon Musk purchased the company.
There are reports the campaign is preparing for Trump’s first tweet.
“Trump is probably coming back to Twitter. It’s just a question of how and when,” an anonymous Republican source told NBC. “He’s been talking about it for weeks, but Trump speaks for Trump, so it’s anyone’s guess what he’ll do or say or when.”
House Democrats are pushing to keep Trump off Facebook.
“Trump has continued to post harmful election content on Truth Social that would likely violate Facebook’s policies, and we have every reason to believe he would bring similar conspiratorial rhetoric back to Facebook, if given the chance,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) wrote in a letter signed by three Democrat colleagues.
