Donald Trump may be running for president, but he still can't use Facebook, AP reports.
The social media platform has no plans to reinstate Trump’s account following the former president’s announcement on Tuesday that he will seek a second term in the White House, the company confirmed Wednesday.
Trump was kicked off Facebook following the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Trump may not have to wait long to get back on the site, however.
His suspension from Facebook is set to be reconsidered in January, two years after it was first imposed. — One change will be immediate: As a candidate, Trump will no longer be subject to Facebook fact checks. That’s because under Facebook rules , comments by elected officials and candidates for office aren’t subject to fact checks on its site.
