Donald Trump is at a crossroads less than two months after his 2024 campaign announcement.
It’s no longer just establishment Republicans who have turned on him – many of his conservative supporters are having second thoughts as well.
But this one looming decision could make or break Donald Trump’s third Presidential campaign.
It’s no secret that the events of January 6, and the ensuing hysterical left-wing propaganda claiming it was some sort of coup d’etat to overthrow the entire U.S. government, gave Big Tech the opening they needed to ban former President Donald Trump from most every platform.
When it was all said and done, Trump had been banned by Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Google, TikTok, Snapchat, Twitch, Reddit, Pinterest, Apple, Discord, Amazon, Shopify, Discord, and Amazon, just to name a few.
To this day, Trump is still banned by every one of those platforms except Twitter, and that only happened because Elon Musk cares about free speech and recognized it was a “grave mistake” to issue a lifetime ban to anyone, much less a former President who “didn’t violate the rules.”
And that’s exactly why so many Americans felt that Musk’s takeover of Twitter and efforts to protect free speech are so important.
The hope was, over time, Musk’s efforts would create a ripple effect that would force other Big Tech companies to reverse course on some of their most authoritarian left-wing, anti-free speech schemes.
Now, that may be exactly what is transpiring, as CNN has reported that Facebook parent company Meta is in the process of deciding whether it’ll lift Trump’s ban by the end of the month.
“Facebook’s parent company Meta is considering whether to allow former President Donald Trump back on to its platforms and is due to announce its decision in the coming weeks, a company spokesperson told CNN on Monday,” CNN reported. “The decision, likely to be one of the most consequential in the company’s history, is being considered by a specially formed internal company working group made up of leaders from different parts of the organization, a person familiar with the deliberations told CNN.”
“The group includes representatives from the company’s public policy, communications, content policy, and safety and integrity teams, the person said,” the report continued. “Details of the working group were first reported by the Financial Times.”
Ultimately, the possibility that Facebook may lift his ban is certainly welcome news for Trump and his campaign team.
Whether they want to admit it or not, the former President is facing more of an uphill battle in his third Presidential run than at any point over the past seven years or so.
Obviously, Democrats and the corporate-controlled media are more emboldened than ever to do whatever it takes to stop his candidacy and the Republican establishment will gladly hand Democrats the White House again if it means stopping Trump – those hurdles haven’t changed.
But there are an increasing number of conservatives who have been rock solid in support of the former President since 2016, and are now questioning whether they should continue to do so.
That reality coupled with the revelations made by The Twitter Files – which proved the federal government and Big Tech have colluded to censor anyone who doesn’t bow down to the ruling class – puts Trump in a position where he needs all the ammunition he can get his hands on.
And even if he were to manage to get through the Republican Presidential Primary gauntlet without it, facing President Biden in a rematch of 2020 without Facebook would give Democrats a major advantage.
No matter how you slice it, the looming decision from Facebook over whether they’ll lift Donald Trump’s ban could very well make or break his third White House run.
