Zuckerberg Restores Trump’s Facebook And Instagram Accounts

The Facebook and Instagram accounts of incumbent US President Donald Trump have been unblocked after they were disabled on Wednesday January 6, as result of the riots at the Capitol Hill.

The accounts were restored in the early hours of Saturday January 16.


Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg announced on January 7, the day after the storming of the Capitol, that Trump’s accounts will be suspended in order to facilitate a peaceful transition of power.

Mark Zuckerberg’s statement read: “We believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great. Therefore, we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete.”

The last post on Trump’s Instagram page is a call for his supporters to gather in Washington DC for “the Save America March” on Wednesday, January 6, 2021.

The last posts on his Facebook account call on his supporters to remain peaceful and respect law enforcement personnel.

Earlier, Twitter, suspended the president’s personal account, and others associated directly with him, permanently “due to the risk of further incitement of violence.”
