Shortly after the US Capitol riots in January, leading social media platforms like Twitter, YouTube and Facebook had removed the then US President Donald Trump’s account for allegedly inciting violence and spreading misinformation.
In just four months, the ex-US President has now launched his own communications platform, ‘From the Desk of Donald J Trump’ a one-way communication platform.
The platform is to relay Trump’s messages which can be shared further on Twitter and Facebook.
The former President can post pictures, videos, comments, and articles on the new platform built by Campaign Nucleus, created by Trump’s former campaign manager Brad Parscale.
The launch announcement comes just ahead of Facebook’s independent oversight board’s decision on whether or not to indefinitely suspend Trump from the platform.
Trump’s senior advisor, Jason Miller, had previously informed that Trump was all set to launch a new social media platform. “This new platform is going to be big,” he said in March. Confirming that the plan for the same is intact, Miller added “We’ll have additional information coming on that front in the very near future.”
