Trump Launches Own Online Platform Amid Ongoing Social Media Bans
'From the Desk of Donald J. Trump' bypasses left-wing Big Tech giants Facebook & Twitter
President Donald Trump has launched his own online message board platform as his months-long bans from Big Tech's left-wing social media giants continue.
On Tuesday, Trump launched a new communications platform called "From the Desk of Donald J. Trump."
The 45th president unveiled the website while teasing supporters they will be "very, very happy" when they hear his decision about running for the White House in 2024.
The new webpage, www.DonaldJTrump.com/desk, allows MAGA patriots to repost the statements from Trump to their Facebook and Twitter feeds since he was suspended from both platforms.
On Wednesday, Facebook's left-leaning Oversight Board will announce whether Trump is permanently banned from Facebook and Instagram.
Trump's new webpage is referred to as a "beacon of freedom" in a time of "lies and silence" in a promotional video.
The short promo also shows imagery of Mar-a-Lago, where President Trump has been living since leaving the White House.
As of Tuesday night, he had only posted the video and a collection of his recent statements.
The feed is a running list of Trump's un-dated statements.
The most recent post attacks House Republican Conference Chairwoman Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) — who continues to criticize Trump over the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol.
"Heartwarming to read new polls on big-shot warmonger Liz Cheney of the great State of Wyoming," Trump wrote.
"She is so low that her only chance would be if vast numbers of people run against her which, hopefully, won't happen.
"They never liked her much, but I say she'll never run in a Wyoming election again!"
Visitors to the page are unable to comment on the posts, but there are options for sharing the messages to Facebook or Twitter.
However, Twitter has reportedly been blocking some of the content from being shared, according to The Blaze.
Facebook did allow the posts to appear on its site, for now.
There are also buttons where users can contribute money, and sign up to be notified whenever Trump posts a new message.
According to The Washington Examiner, "The technology for the platform appears to come from Campaign Nucleus, a 'digital ecosystem made for efficiently managing political campaigns and organizations' that was initially developed by former campaign manager Brad Parscale."
"This is just a one-way communication," one source familiar with Trump's new messaging center told Fox.
"This system allows Trump to communicate with his followers."
Trump adviser Jason Miller tweeted after the rollout, "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.
"We'll have additional information coming on that front in the very near future."
Trump was banned from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Snapchat following the Jan. 6 Capitol attack.
President Trump's new message feed comes the day before Facebook's oversight board is set to announce whether his ban from the site will be permanent.
According to The Washington Post:
"The impending decision by the Oversight Board, a less than one-year-old body that describes itself as an 'experiment' in the regulation of online speech, could be the most consequential decision ever regarding free speech on social media, according to experts.
"It could also alter the way that social media companies treat public figures going forward."
