Trump’s account was suspended after the attack on the Capitol on January 6, fearing the Republicans would incite similar acts of violence.

Facebook’s Independent Oversight Board will announce its decision on whether to maintain the company’s suspension on former President Donald Trump’s account.

The quasi-independent staff said the announcement will be made on May 5 in a Twitter post.

The board says it has received more than 9,000 public comments on the Trump case.

The board was created last September after the company faced criticism that it was not quickly and effectively addressing what some see as problematic content.

Board decisions are binding and cannot be overruled.
