Facebook, like other social networks, blocked Trump after the storming of the Capitol on January 6, 2021.
On March 17, former US President Donald Trump published the first post on the restored Facebook account.
"I'm back," the ex-president of the country wrote.
The 12-second video is a snippet of Trump's speech after winning the 2016 election. In it, he exclaims, "Sorry to keep you waiting - hard business."
Donald Trump's social media accounts have been blocked for more than two years.
Currently, the former US president is also able to post videos again on his YouTube account.
It will be recalled that on February 9, the company Meta restored the access of former US President Donald Trump to Facebook and Instagram.
On January 19, it became known that Trump asked Meta to restore his Facebook profile. NBC News speculated that he is trying to return to Facebook ahead of the 2024 presidential election. Trump has more than 34 million followers on Facebook, so the platform was critical to his 2016 election.
Facebook, like other social networks, blocked Trump after the storming of the Capitol on January 6, 2021. At first, he was blocked for 24 hours, but less than a day later, the company announced an indefinite ban. In June 2021, on the recommendation of the oversight board, Meta said it would review the ban after two years and assess the risk to public safety of restoring Trump's account.
According to NBC News, in 2021 Meta made it clear that Trump's ban would not last forever. "When the ban is eventually lifted, Mr. Trump's account will be subject to new, increased penalties if he violates our policies, up to and including the permanent removal of his accounts," Meta's president of global affairs, Nick Clegg, said at the time.
