The Facebook Oversight Board announced today that it will share whether or not former President Donald Trump's Facebook account will continue to be banned from the platform on Wednesday.

After Facebook blocked the Trump account for violating its policies, the company referred its decision to the Facebook Oversight Board for review. The board delayed the announcement of its ruling earlier this month in order to review the unprecedented number of public comments on the board's decision making process.

The Oversight Board has the binding power to uphold or overturn Facebook's decisions, and to make recommendations about future platform policies, rules and behaviors.
