Donald Trump Launches New Communications Platform

DM

After being booted from Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, former President Donald Trump launched his own communications platform on Tuesday — a platform that will allow him to exclusively share messages with his millions of followers. “The platform, ‘From the Desk of Donald J. Trump’ appears on www.DonaldJTrump.com/desk,” wrote Fox News in an exclusive report. A video introduction posted to the site hailed the new platform as a “place to speak freely and safely” while pledging to “Save America.” Visitors to the site will be able to share Trump’s posts on various social media platforms, but they will be unable to respond with comments of their own. “The space allows Trump to post, and allows followers to share the former president’s posts to Twitter and Facebook, however, the new platform does not have a feature to allow users to ‘reply’ or engage with Trump’s posts,” added Fox News. Trump’s decision to keep the platform a one-way system of communication ultimately frees him and his staff the burden of regulating comments. User-generated comments that violate the rules of other, third-party platforms could enable those platforms to block his posts.
