Former US President Donald Trump announced this Friday his return to the social network Facebookthe same day that YouTube also announced that it was lifting its restrictions against the tycoon.
In the early afternoon, Trump sent a terse message in all capital letters to announce: “I’m back!”, And he did it accompanied by a video (corresponding to the day of his presidential election) in which he appears saying: “I’m sorry I kept you waiting. (There were) complications.”
Then an electoral-type poster appears in which he promotes his candidacy for the next presidential elections: “Trump 2024, Make America Great Again.”
The post is the first that Trump has made on Facebook to his 34 million followers after the company announced last January that the former president could use the platform again.
Trump was banned from the main social networks -Facebook, Twitter or Youtube- after his hosts assaulted the Capitol, and then he created his Truth social network with which the media assured that he had signed an exclusivity contract, but everything indicates that the contract would have expired or is no longer valid.
Separately, a federal judge today ordered Trump’s lawyer, Evan Corcoran, to testify before the grand jury in the so-called Mar-a-lago case, about the mishandling of classified documents by the Republican.
The Hill portal, which cites several concurring sources, says that the judge Beryl Howell has indications that the lawyer provided advice to Trump to allow him to commit a crime, beyond fulfilling the strict task of representing his client. According to The Hill, this appearance can make Corcoran a key witness in the case and allow rapid progress in a case in which the Prosecutor’s team has already scrutinized no less than 300 classified documents improperly extracted by Donald Trump.
