Former President Donald J. Trump, who has been banned from Twitter and Facebook has launched a new micro-blog site to send his messages directly to the American people. After leaving office, for now, Trump is a blogger.
The new blog site features a video and several posts from the President. In recent weeks, Trump has been communicating directly with media outlets such as Shore News Network and others to get his message out, but many outlets have been ignoring those messages and some even distorting the messages.
On Tuesday, the former President rolled out his own blog site and staffers promise there is more to come, including his own ‘platform’.
“I do think that we’re going to see President Trump returning to social media in probably about two or three months here, with his own platform,” Trump senior adviser Jason Miller told Fox News’ “#MediaBuzz” on Sunday. “And this is something that I think will be the hottest ticket in social media, it’s going to completely redefine the game, and everybody is going to be waiting and watching to see what exactly President Trump does.”
No further details of that social media platform have been announced. Trump would have to compete with Parler in the conservative social media space. Parler took a huge hit after it was kicked off the Amazon Web Services platform and many users never went back. The app was also removed from the app stores.
On Wednesday, Facebook is scheduled to announce whether or not Trump’s account on that platform will be reinstated after being banned earlier this year.
