Former President Donald Trump could have his Facebook accounts reinstated next year after reviewing the company's decision to block him, Nick Clegg, president of global relations at Meta, noted.

The company will consult with experts and weigh the implications, he said.  When one make a decision that affects the public sphere, one need to proceed with great caution, Clegg said.

Facebook banned Trump's access to the platform indefinitely after the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol. Facebook's watchdog board later said it was inappropriate of the company to block Trump without a deadline, and instructed Facebook to review the decision and respond clearly and proportionately, Clegg wrote at the time. Facebook then blocked Trump for two years, until Jan. 7, 2023. After that date, Facebook will assess external factors, including incidents of violence, restrictions on peaceful assembly, and other signs of civil unrest.

Trump's blocking also affected his Instagram account.

Trump was also banned from other platforms, including YouTube and Twitter.
