Trump posts a video on Facebook and YouTube after recovering his accounts

The former president of the United States Donald Trump has published this Friday a first video on his Facebook and YouTube profiles after recovering his accounts after they were suspended more than two years ago alleging violation of policies against incitement to violence in relation to assault to the Capitol.

“I’m sorry for the wait. Complex issues,” reads the message that the tycoon has published on both platforms, which belongs to a fragment of the speech he gave after being elected president and which was broadcast on CNN.

YouTube has announced this Friday the reestablishment of the former president’s channel. “We carefully assess the continued risk of violence in the real world, while balancing the possibility that voters will listen equally to the main national candidates in the run-up to an election,” YouTube said on its official Twitter communication profile.

The platform thus alludes to the future electoral campaign of Trump, who has already confirmed his candidacy for the next presidential elections of the United States in the year 2024. This decision by YouTube is added to the recent ones by Twitter and Meta –Facebook parent company –, who have also lifted their veto over the former president.

YouTube suspended Trump’s account in mid-January 2021, arguing that a video shared by the former president had violated his policy against inciting violence. Since then, Trump has not been able to share new videos and even saw how the possibility of commenting on those already published was lost.

For its part, the company Meta, parent of platforms such as Facebook or Instagram — which announced that it would lift the veto of Trump in early February — suspended the former president’s account in June 2021 for these same reasons.
