Trump launches new website ahead of Facebook ruling
‘From the Desk of Donald J. Trump’ contains posts from the former United States president that can be liked and shared by others to Twitter and Facebook, where Trump himself remains banned.
Former United States President Donald Trump on Tuesday launched a space on his website where he can post messages that can be shared by others to Twitter and Facebook, sites where he remains banned.
The move comes a day before a decision from Facebook Inc’s oversight board on whether to uphold Trump’s indefinite suspension from the platform. Trump was barred from a slew of social media platforms following the deadly January 6 storming of the US Capitol by his supporters.
Trump’s senior adviser, Jason Miller, said in a tweet that this collection of posts was not the social media platform that Trump has plans to launch.
