SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Former President Donald Trump won’t return to Facebook.

MORE: Should President Trump be allowed back on Facebook? Stay tuned Wednesday.

The social network’s quasi-independent Oversight Board has voted to permanently ban his account after it was suspended four months ago for inciting violence that led to the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

But the board said Facebook must reassess the penalty because it imposed it “indefinitely.”

Trump has also been permanently banned from Twitter.
