‘From Donald J. Trump’s desk’ is a post by a former president of the United States that can be liked by others and shared on Twitter and Facebook, where Trump himself is 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 on Twitter and Facebook where he is banned.
The move comes a day before Facebook Inc.’s supervisory board decides whether to maintain an indefinite suspension from Trump’s platform. His supporters banned Trump from a number of social media platforms in January after a deadly storm hit the U.S. Capitol.
Jason Miller, a senior adviser to Trump, said in a tweet that this collection of posts is not the social media that Trump plans to launch.
He tweeted, “More information will come before us in the very near future.”
The site, first published by Fox News, is dubbed “from Donald J. Trump’s desk” and contains Trump’s posts that can be shared and liked. According to a source familiar with the matter, the campaign nucleus was created by digital service firms created by Brad Parskele, Trump’s former campaign manager.
Posting on the site reiterates Trump’s false claim that he has rejected widespread voter fraud and fellow Republicans who lost the 2020 election who have been criticized as senators Mitt Romney and Rep. Liz Cheney.
Both Twitter Inc. and Facebook have deleted content posted from other accounts that they say tried to impose their sanctions on Trump. Companies do not respond immediately to requests for comment on how to treat shared posts from a new location.
Twitter, which Trump used heavily and where he has 6 million followers, says he is stepping up again, even as the ban on him is permanent.
Alfayet Inc.’s YouTube says Trump’s channel has decided it will recover when it reduces the risk of violence.
