Trump launches new ‘social media platform’


Trump launches new ‘social media platform’


Former President Donald Trump unveiled a new part of his website on Tuesday, basically a standard-issue blog, after months of promised his own social media network for banned posters.

His fans may subscribe to post notifications on the sites using their email addresses and phone numbers.

Users will be able to like and share content on social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.

On Tuesday, a Twitter representative informed The Verge that “Generally, sharing content from the website reference is permitted as long as the material does not otherwise the Twitter Rules.” A request for comment from Facebook was not immediately returned.

“It is a blog,” Kara Swisher, a New York Times technology writer, told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme. “I was like ‘2002 is calling and it wants its blog back…’

“I don’t know what the overall plan is because he does have some very sharp digital advisers. It is just the beginning of his attempts to try to re-establish a louder ability to participate in digital media.”


Despite the fact that the site just debuted on Tuesday, there are postings from March 24th. Trump’s most recent post is a video promoting his new platform, which he describes as “a place to speak freely and safely, straight from Donald J. Trump’s desk.” Trump will “eventually” be able to interact directly with his followers, according to Fox News, but it’s unclear how that would happen. A request for response from Trump’s press office was not immediately returned.

Campaign Nucleus, a digital services firm established by Trump’s former campaign manager Brad Parscale, seems to have developed the platform.

The tool is jointly sponsored by the Save America and Make America Great Again political action committees, according to a footnote.

Jason Miller, Mr Trump’s top advisor, has previously said that a new social media site will be created. In March, he stated, “This new platform is going to be big.”

Miller attempted to clarify the issue through Twitter.

“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 wrote. “We’ll have additional information coming on that front in the very near future.”

Several articles on the site recycle discredited allegations that the presidential election was manipulated last year.

The Oversight Board received a case referral from Facebook on January 21 to investigate the company’s decision to indefinitely ban Trump’s ability to publish material on Facebook and Instagram, as well as provide policy recommendations on suspensions when the user is a political leader.

The new site launched shortly ahead of a judgment by Facebook’s Oversight Board on whether or not the company was correct in banning Mr. Trump.

Trump is still not allowed to use Facebook and other sites, such as Twitter.
