Former President Donald Trump has gone live with his first Facebook post since 2021.

‘I’M BACK!’ wrote Trump in the post on Friday afternoon.

It was accompanied by a 12-second 2024 Trump campaign video.

‘Sorry to keep you waiting, complicated business, complicated business,’ Trump said in the clip from when he was first elected in the 2016 presidential election.

In this case it was in reference to Trump’s two-year absence from Facebook. He was banned by the platform after the January 6 Capitol riot.

His post came more than a month after Meta, which owns Facebook and Instagram, restored his accounts.

Trump has 34million followers on his Facebook page.

His last post before Friday was on January 6, 2021.

‘I am asking for everyone at the U.S. Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence! Remember, WE are the Party of Law & Order – respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you!’ Trump wrote, hours after holding a rally in which he encouraged his fans to fight the election results.

The Facebook post came hours after YouTube announced that it had restored Trump’s channel after a two-year suspension for violating its policies by sharing content that incited violence.
