The oversight board, in January, upheld Facebook's decision to ban the former President Donald Trump's Facebook and Instagram accounts.

Trump, who previously got banned from Twitter indefinitely, saw this similar consequences on Facebook after he applauded people who engaged in violence at the capital riot on January 6. Facebook also stated that at the end of the period, they would have experts to determine whether Trump's reinstatement will bring any risks to public safety. Only then will the suspension be lifted.
"When the suspension is eventually lifted, there will be a strict set of rapidly escalating sanctions that will be triggered if Mr. Trump commits further violations in future, up to and including permanent removal of his pages and accounts," said Facebook's vice president of global affairs and communication, Nick Clegg.
Facebook also looked at the case from a broader perspective and said it would no longer allow politicians and other public figures to spread their hateful propaganda and opinions. Cregg added, “Given the gravity of the circumstances that led to Mr. Trump’s suspension, we believe his actions constituted a severe violation of our rules which merit the highest penalty available under the new enforcement protocols."

Trump obviously didn't stay quiet and vented at the decision. He said, "Facebook’s ruling is an insult to the record-setting 75 people, plus many others, who voted for us in the 2020 Rigged Presidential Election,they shouldn’t be allowed to get away with this censoring and silencing, and ultimately, we will win. Our country can’t take this abuse anymore."
