Donald Trump Facebook live – Board upholds Trump ban as he launches his own From the Desk platform

DONALD Trump’s Facebook account will not be reinstated, the social media site’s board announced Wednesday.

Facebook’s independent Oversight Board made the decision to uphold restrictions on the former president’s account.

Trump was indefinitely banned form Facebook back in January after hundreds of his supporters stormed the US Capitol, leaving five dead.

However, the former president’s team dub that his social media platform is “essential” for if Trump runs for reelection in 2024 – something he has been hinting at in recent weeks.

Trump is also still banned from several others platforms, such as TwitterYouTube and Instagram – however, it’s Facebook that’s most key to his bid for reelection, according to Axios.

On Tuesday, Trump announced the launch of From the Desk of Donald J Trump.

The new platform will allow the former president to post comments, photos, and videos. 

It will eventually give him the ability to communicate directly with his supporters, according to Fox News.
