(TargetLiberty.org) – Former President Donald Trump has submitted an official appeal against his suspension from Facebook and Instagram – but isn’t interested in getting his famous Twitter account back.
On February 23, Britain’s Channel 4 News reported that Donald Trump has asked a social media oversight board to review his suspension from Facebook and Instagram. Mark Zuckerberg initially said Trump’s suspension was to last until after the inauguration, but the former president still hasn’t been allowed back on the platform.
The board, which is funded by Facebook, is made up of 19 members who include former journalists and politicians. Its co-chair, former Danish leader Helle Thorning-Schmidt, says they’ve decided to take the case; now they have 90 days to reach a decision.
Former President Trump has appealed directly to Facebook’s Oversight Board to rejoin the platform – Channel 4 News understands.

While Trump wants these two accounts reopened, he’s already said he isn’t interested in rejoining Twitter. On February 17, he told Newsmax anchor Greg Kelly the platform – which he famously used to share his thoughts with the nation – had become “very boring.”
