Facebook Board Upholds Donald Trump Suspension. Could His YouTube,Twitter Accounts Return?

Facebook’s oversight board has reached a decision on Donald Trump’s eviction from the platform, upholding his suspension but ordering Facebook to either reinstate him or ban him permanently within six months. The former president was booted from all major social media platforms in wake of the Capitol riots on Jan. 6.

The board’s decision is a blow for Trump’s dwindling chances to return to social media, leaving only the possibility of a return to Youtube and the slim odds that Facebook will decide to reinstate him fully.

YouTube has pledged to eventually reinstate his account, but when asked about a timeframe in March CEO Susan Wojcicki said that an “elevated violence risk still remains.”

“We will turn the account back on,” she said. “But it will be when we see the reduced law enforcement in capitals in the U.S, if we don’t see different warnings coming out of government agencies, those would all be signals to us that it would be safe to turn the channel back on.”

Trump's prospects on Facebook don’t look much better. While the oversight board said the platform couldn’t keep him in limbo, it supported the original reasoning for his ban.
