Meta officially restored former President Trump’s Facebook page and Instagram Thursday.

Trump, who was suspended by Meta after Jan. 6, 2021, created Truth Social as a platform to combat Big Tech censorship of conservatives.

Should Trump return to Facebook and Twitter?

In January, Meta announced it would lift Trump’s suspension “in the coming weeks” and institute heightened penalties of a suspension between one month and two years if the former president violated its content policies again.

Trump now regains access to key platforms for voter outreach and political fundraising ahead of another run for the White House in 2024. He had 23 million followers on Instagram and 34 million on Facebook as of January.

Trump has not posted on Twitter or Facebook despite reports his campaign is preparing for it.

On Wednesday, Trump accused Twitter, Facebook, and Google of taking away his “voice” by shadowbanning and censoring him before he was fully de-platformed.

Trump also celebrated the engagement on Truth Social during President Biden’s State of the Union address:
