DONALD TRUMP has launched a new communications platform that allows the former US president to bypass his ban on Twitter and Facebook.
From Donald J. Trump’s desk is not a social media platform in the strictest sense of the word, but rather a blog-like website where only he can upload content.
Users cannot communicate directly with Trump on the webpage, but they can repost statements made on the site to Facebook and Twitter.
The ex-president was suspended from both platforms amid allegations that he instigated the riots witnessed in Washington, D.C. earlier this year.
Facebook’s Supervisory Board announced this week whether Trump will be permanently banned from Facebook and Instagram.
The site, www.DonaldJTrump.com/desk, launched with a glossy promotional video about Trump’s new home in Mar-a-Lago. In the clip, the new blog is described as a “beacon of freedom” in a time of “lies and silence.
” The site invites users to sign up for alerts. Even more telling, users are also directed to a page asking for campaign donations, with the biggest hint yet that he could be planning another run for the office.
Trump spokesman and adviser Jason Miller, meanwhile, has suggested there are still plans for a social media platform designed for the former Apprentice star’s followers.
“President Trump’s website is a great resource to find his latest statements and highlights from his first term in office, but this is not a new social media platform,” he said.
“We will get more information on that front shortly.” Neither Facebook nor Twitter have commented on the new website yet.
Trump dropped another important hint during an interview with conservative commentator Candace Owens for her Daily Wire talk show.
Asked if he would run in 2024, Trump said, “The answer is, I am absolutely thrilled. I look forward to making an announcement at the right time.
“As you know, it’s very early. But I think people will be very happy if I make a particular announcement.” Trump is already preparing to resume the MAGA meetings that became a major cornerstone of his two previous presidential election.
The ex-president is reportedly keen to restart the rallies once the midterms of 2022 have ended. Advertisement He is eager to move forward with the events, despite ongoing concerns about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
