Trump publica no Facebook e YouTube pela primeira vez desde a sua suspensão em 2021

Former US President Donald Trump posted on social media Facebook and YouTube yesterday for the first time since his suspension in 2021.

I'm back! [I?m back," wrote the Republican, quoted by Lusa, who has already announced his third candidacy for the White House, in the 2024 presidential election.

The short message in capital letters was accompanied by a short old video from CNN, where he appears flanked by his Vice President Mike Pence and his son Barron, in which he said: "Sorry to keep you waiting, it was complicated.

The post released at 8:00 pm has already garnered hundreds of comments, including several praising his return to these social networks.

Last Friday, the ?online video platform? YouTube announced the end of its suspension of Trump.

"As of today, the ?Donald J. Trump? channel is no longer subject to restrictions," the US giant noted on Twitter.

The Republican had been excluded from the social network in January 2021, while still in office, for encouraging his supporters during the attack on the Capitol in Washington.

This unprecedented decision was imitated at the time by most of the major social networks, including Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

To justify its decision, YouTube said Friday that it assessed "the risk of violence," taking into consideration the importance to voters of hearing "equally from the leading national candidates."

Donald Trump had already been readmitted to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram in recent months.

The reactivation of Trump's accounts allows the Republican to relay information through his Facebook and Instagram pages, which have 34 million and 23 million followers, respectively.

Trump was a big fan of social media while he was in the White House from 2017 to 2021, whether to announce official business, comment on television shows or announce what he would be eating that day, among many other things.

After being banned from the major social networks in 2021, the former President created his own social network, Truth Social, which he launched in October 2021.

Trump signed an exclusivity contract with Truth Social, the validity of which is unknown, although the specialized ?media? reported that this was ending in March.
