It has been two years since Facebook hit the snooze button on what to do about Donald Trump. After much dithering, Facebook said in 2021 that it suspended Trump’s account for two years for goading January 6 rioters and publicly attacking the US democratic process.

With the deadline here, signs point to Trump’s imminent return – bad news for public discourse but potentially great for Trump as he makes another White House bid.
