Trump launches new communications platform months after Twitter, facebook ban

Former US President Donald Trump has launched a private communications platform following his ban from numerous social media networks.

In response to the January 6 capitol demonstrations, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and Snapchat removed President Trump from their platforms. “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump” allows the former president to connect with viewers directly. Statements, photos, and videos have been featured thus far. 

On Wednesday, Trump wrote, “What Facebook, Twitter, and Google have done is a total disgrace and an embarrassment to our Country. Free Speech has been taken away from the President of the United States because the Radical Left Lunatics are afraid of the truth, but the truth will come out anyway, bigger and stronger than ever before. The People of our Country will not stand for it! These corrupt social media companies must pay a political price, and must never again be allowed to destroy and decimate our Electoral Process.” 

For now, the platform is a one-way form of communication. Viewers can not engage with the content, although they have the ability to repost the president on other platforms, such as Twitter and Facebook. Followers can be notified of new content by sharing their phone number or email address. From the Desk of Donald J. Trump appears to be a product of Campaign Nucleus, a “digital political ecosystem that connects contacts and unifies processes to power efficient campaigns and reach the right people with the right message to drive actionable results.” The company was founded by Trump’s former campaign manager, Brad Pascale.
