On Wednesday, Twitter was flooded with media reports claiming the 45th president’s social media accounts had been reinstated.
The rumor was denied, however, by Facebook Policy Communications Director Andy Stone, who informed Vox reporter Aaron Rupar the news was inaccurate and that Trump remained “indefinitely suspended.”
“Nothing about the status of President Trump’s presence on our platform has changed. He remains indefinitely suspended,” Stone told Rupar.
After deleting his previous tweet falsely announcing Trump’s return, Rupar admitted he’d promoted fake news.
The media reports came just hours after the former president permanently closed down his blog, The Desk of Donald J. Trump, which senior adviser Jason Miller said could precede a move to another platform.
