Facebook has just announced that they will continue to ban President Trump from their platform for two years, or until January 2023.
CNN’s Brian Stelter, who is arguably one of the most unhinged, anti-Trump members of the failing cable network, somehow was first to report the decision by Facebook on Twitter:
Just in from Facebook: “Given the gravity of the circumstances that led to Mr. Trump’s suspension,” FB is “suspending his accounts for two years, effective from the date of the initial suspension on January 7th this year.”

So Trump is being blocked from Facebook through January 2023. “At the end of this period, if we determine that there is still a serious risk to public safety, we will extend the restriction for a set period of time and continue to re-evaluate until that risk has receded.”
Facebook continued with their disrespectful statement about the ban on President Trump, speaking about him as though he were a bad child that can’t be trusted to post content on their platform.
When Trump’s Facebook suspension is eventually lifted in 2023, “there will be a strict set of rapidly escalating sanctions that will be triggered if Mr. Trump commits further violations in future, up to and including permanent removal of his pages and accounts,” Facebook says.
President Trump wasted no time sending a statement to his millions of followers. Although he doesn’t directly address Facebook’s decision, Trump does appear to be a warning to the Facebook CEO.
Next time I’m in the White House, there will be no more dinners, at his request, with Mark Zuckerberg and his wife. It will be all business!
Here’s a screenshot of the email I received from President Trump:
In addition to putting Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg on notice, it would appear that President Trump has also let the proverbial cat out of the bag by announcing that he will, indeed, be running for President in 2024.
