The ban has been lifted.
According to a report from The New York Post, former President and 2024 candidate Donald Trump will be allowed to return to YouTube —just in time for the 2024 campaign to heat up.
From The New York Post:
The video-streaming service owned by Google suspended Trump’s account on Jan 12, 2021 in the aftermath of the Jan. 6 Capitol Riot.
YouTube public policy VP Leslie Miller said that beginning Friday, Trump can return to his channel with more than 2.5 million followers and is “is no longer restricted and the ability to upload new content is restored.”
“We carefully evaluated the continued risk of real-world violence, balancing that with the importance of preserving the opportunity for voters to hear equally from major national candidates in the run-up to an election,” Miller said in a statement.
His “channel will continue to be subject to our policies, just like any other channel on YouTube,” Miller added.
Trump has also regained access to his Twitter and Facebook accounts, but still uses TRUTH Social as his main form of communication with his supporters.
