Donald Trump's Facebook ban might not be forever.

The former US President was suspended from the social media platform, as well as Twitter and YouTube, in January after the storming of the Capitol in Washington DC.

US correspondent Nick Bryant says Facebook has a quasi-independent body to review controversial content decisions.

He told Kate Hawkesby that group has upheld the suspension, but also told Facebook it should be taking responsibility for the decision.

“It gave Facebook six months to review this decision and to authorise what it said a proportionate response.”
