Former President Donald Trump appealed directly to Facebook’s Supervisory Board to join the platform, Channel 4 News reported.
The Facebook Oversight Board, a team of 20 experts from around the world, is reviewing the tech company’s decision to permanently suspend Trump’s account. Helle Thorning-Schmidt, former Prime Minister of Denmark and member of the Supervisory Board, told Channel 4 News of Trump’s call, according to the media’s communications director Hayley Barlow.
Thorning-Schmidt added that the Supervisory Board had received thousands of public comments on the matter.
“We can confirm that a user statement has been received in the matter before the Oversight Board regarding President Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts,” a spokesperson for the Oversight Board said in a statement to Insider. “We will have no further comments on this statement until the Council renders its decision.”
Facebook suspended Trump’s account in the wake of the Jan.6 uprising on the U.S. Capitol. Trump had posted a video on Facebook during the insurgency that sounded sympathetic to rioters and broadcast false allegations of voter fraud.
Facebook’s supervisory board, which was launched last year and has ruled on five cases so far, announced on Jan.21 that it would reconsider the company’s decision to suspend Trump. The board has 90 days in total to decide whether Trump can stay on the platform. Decisions taken by the Council cannot be overturned.
The former president criticized Facebook’s decision to create a supervisory board. The New Yorker reported that Trump called CEO Mark Zuckerberg himself to protest the addition of Pamela Karlan, a Stanford law professor who testified on his impeachment in 2019. Zuckerberg listened to his complaints but didn’t has not changed the makeup of the board, according to The New Yorker.
The Supervisory Board overturned Facebook’s decisions in four of the five previous decisions. The council voted for the reinstatement of posts, like that of a symptom of breast cancer and on the treatment of Uyghur Muslims in China, with Facebook removed for violating its terms of service.
A Trump spokesperson did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
