Former President Donald Trump is poised to make a dramatic return to Twitter and Facebook, the social media platforms that he and his team wielded to such great effect leading up to his 2016 election victory.
According to NBC News, an anonymous Republican reportedly related to the established network said that “Trump is probably coming back to Twitter. It’s just a question of how and when.” They added that this information came from conversations with Trump himself.
“He’s been talking about it for weeks, but Trump speaks for Trump, so it’s anyone’s guess what he’ll do or say or when.”
Another unnamed source near the 45th president told the outlet that Trump has been seeking input from his closest advisors about jumping back into the fray on Twitter and his advisors have been workshopping ideas for his first, sure to be seismic, tweet.
In a Tuesday letter obtained by NBC News to Meta, the parent company of Facebook, the Trump campaign wrote, “We believe that the ban on President Trump’s account on Facebook has dramatically distorted and inhibited the public discourse.”
While the report stated that the Trump campaign did not threaten legal action, it instead discussed the critical nature of freedom of speech and requested a “meeting to discuss President Trump’s prompt reinstatement to the platform.”
A spokesman from the social media giant declined to comment to NBC, but did say Meta “will announce a decision in the coming weeks in line with the process we laid out.”
“Trump has continued to post harmful election content on Truth Social that would likely violate Facebook’s policies, and we have every reason to believe he would bring similar conspiratorial rhetoric back to Facebook, if given the chance,” he wrote.
CEO of Twitter Elon Musk un-blocked Trump’s account fairly quickly after his takeover of the company, however, Trump has eschewed the use of the platform, instead continuing to communicate with supporters via his Truth Social platform where he can speak without the prospect of a ban over his head.
