Donald Trump’s Website: After Trump’s ban from, social media, he launched his own communication platform that has been permanently shut down, his spokesperson told.
“It was just auxiliary to the broader efforts we have and are working on,” senior aide Jason Miller said.
Donald Trump’s platform was launched last month and runs directly from the desk of Mr. Trump. The former president used this medium to publish his desire content including press releases and videos.
After the Capitol Hill Riots, Trump was banned from Facebook and Twitter.
There was a section on the former president’s official website from the Desk of Donald J Trump, but it has now been removed. Mr. Miller had confirmed the return of Mr. Trump to social media, although it is unclear when or how.
Donald Trump’s website or ‘communications’ platform, which was often referred to as a blog – had a rolling feed of Mr. Trump’s various publications and provide visitors an option to “like” or share the post on Facebook and Twitter.
Now, the link to the website redirects the visitors to a page where they are encouraged to sign up for an alert from Donald Trump.
In March, Mr. Miller told Fox News he thinks “we’re going to see President Trump returning to social media is probably about two or three months” and “with his own platform”.
Donald J. Trump Desk was considered by some to be the platform he pointed out, Mr miller confirmed in May, saying: “we’ll have additional information coming on that front in the very near future.”
The former president was a social media enthusiast and practiced it for direct communication with his followers.
Since Trump’s ban from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube, the former president is not heard in the same effective way as before. Although, Donald Trump’s website was the closest medium he has to communicate directly with his followers since January.
Mr. Donald Trump was fond of Twitter and we often see his tweets throughout the day – sometimes at night – about an array of topics, including the 2020 election, coronavirus, and what he called “fake news” to his nearly 90 million followers.
Besides, Trump’s Twitter account has been permanently banned. Recently, the Facebook oversight Board has upheld the platform’s decision but gave Facebook six months to review it again. YouTube announced to reactivate Mr. Trump’s account after calm in “real-world violence.”
