President Donald Trump is reported to have filed a statement appealing his ban from Facebook and Instagram to an independent oversight panel.
According to Reuters report on Tuesday, the former president submitted a “user statement” to the oversight board that the companies created to oversee bans.
The oversight board received close to 10,000 comments from the public, by far the most it’s ever received about a decision.
Recall that Trump was indefinitely suspended from Facebook and Instagram, on January 7, a day after the incident occurred at the Capitol Hill.
Twitter has banned Trump permanently and says it has no plans to review or rescind the ban, even if Trump runs for president again.
YouTube has also suspended him from its platform.
A decision on whether to let the former president back on social media platforms is expected in April, Britain’s Channel 4 reports.
