Trump wrote on Facebook – I am back

Former US President Donald Trump is back on Facebook. He wrote in a Facebook post on Friday – I am back. On January 25, social media company Meta announced the reinstatement of Trump's Facebook and Instagram accounts. The company blocked Trump's account on 6 January 2021 after the violence in the US Parliament. Now after 2 years, he is back.
Regarding Trump's return to Facebook, Nick Clegg, President of Meta Global Affairs, said – Former US President Donald Trump's account will be restored with new rules so that his posts do not incite violence again. Their account is subject to our Community Standards. If they post violence again, then the post will be removed from these platforms. Also, his account will be banned.
On January 6, 2021, hundreds of Trump supporters committed violence here during the presidential election results in the US Parliament. Five people including a police officer were killed in this. Trump was accused of inciting supporters. After this, his social media accounts were suspended.
Trump posted a 1-minute video on social media after the violence in Capitol Hill. Trump's video was removed by Facebook and YouTube. Facebook's Vice President (Integrity) Guy Rosen had said that this is an emergency, and violence could be further incited by Trump's video.
Trump had called Facebook's action an insult to the 75 million people who voted for Trump in the 2020 election. Trump said – those people cannot be censored and silenced. We will win again. Our country cannot tolerate this insult any longer.
