Adam Schiff Accuses Facebook of Reinstating Trump for ‘Profit’

Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) has accused Meta of putting profit before public interest by reinstating President Donald Trump’s accounts on Facebook and Instagram.

As Slay News reported, Facebook’s parent company Meta decided to end Trump’s suspension on Wednesday.

The company revealed that his accounts on both Facebook and Instagram will be restored “in the coming weeks.”

Trump was hit with a two-year suspension following the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol.

During an interview on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” on Wednesday, Schiff alleged that Meta is reinstating Trump’s personal account for “profit.”

Anchor Joy Reid said, “Donald Trump is the only announced Republican candidate so far for president.

“He has just been given back access to his Facebook and Instagram accounts.”

Schiff said, “I think Facebook’s decision to reinstate Donald Trump is inexplicable.

“It represents, in my view, a total caving in and copping out.

“The only motive I can see is a profit motive here.”

He added, “If you look at what Donald Trump has been posting on his own social media platform, all of that violates Facebook’s policies.

“He’s continued to give aid and comfort to those who committed acts of insurrection.

“He’s continuing to spread the big lie.

“And the idea that somehow he would not do that on Facebook when he’s doing it on his own platform, to me, is a tragic decision by a company that is putting its profit above the public interest.”

Reid added, “They have said they believe the threat has passed, which seems ludicrous.”
