Smug leftist media prematurely ran a victory lap Wednesday after it was announced that former president Donald Trump would take down his “From the Desk of…” blog, which was pitched as a replacement for his banned social-media accounts.
Some sought to spin it as a failure, while Trump aide Jason Miller told CNBC that the blog “was just auxiliary to the broader efforts we have and are working on.”
Those broader efforts, however, appeared to come into focus when some online posters observed that Trump’s Facebook account, removed shortly after the Jan. 6 US Capitol revolt, had been reinstated.

It appears that President Trump’s Facebook page has been reinstated.
Go to Facebook yourself and check it out. You can even leave comments on his old posts.
Did something happen quietly today?

Users reportedly were able to engage with Trump’s previous posts on both Facebook and Instagram, including comments, the Gateway Pundit reported.
However, following the buzz, a company communications exec denied that the woke cyber-publisher had stealthily changed the status of Trump’s ban.
No. Nothing about the status of President Trump’s presence on our platform has changed. He remains indefinitely suspended.

Facebook communications director Andy Stone said that Trump remained “indefinitely suspended” following the verdict last month of its Oversight Board, a tribunal of radical globalists—many of whom have ties to George Soros.
Despite that decision, at least two of the board members later criticized Facebook for its inconsistency in applying the arbitrary guidelines.
“Facebook invented their own sanctions as they looked into this particular user, Trump,” former Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning–Schmidt told Axios. “Why is this user, Trump, any more special than anyone else? To be punished differently, in ways Facebook chooses to.”
