Trump’s Massive New Social Media ‘Platform’ Is a Message Board That Lets Him Write Phrases So Others Can Tweet Them

Donald Trump, the former president, launched a new social media “platform” on Tuesday, which is just a message board where other people can post their thoughts on Twitter or Facebook. Currently, the “Like” button is not working.

Trump had reportedly been in talks with owners and developers of social media platforms, and some news reports claimed he was going to start a Twitter rival after the social media giant banned him forever.

On Tuesday, Fox News broke the story, reporting that Trump “launched a communications platform that will eventually give him the ability to communicate directly with his followers after months of being banned from sites like Twitter and Facebook.”

The “platform” called “From the Desk” by Donald J. Trump is based only on a web browser, has no mobile app and does not even allow the embedding of comments or posts.

A 30-second video posted on the website after the story was posted by Fox News heralds the website as a “beacon of freedom” and a “place to speak freely and safely.” It starts with a clearly angry former president striking the world and saying, “In a time of silence and lies.”

It ends with Trump’s Save America logo.

There’s also a trading page where supporters can still buy Trump’s goods, like a flag that says, “Don’t blame me, I voted for Trump.”

Backers can sign up to be notified when President Trump sends a message.
