Donald Trump has unveiled his new communications platform, posting a video announcement months after being banned by social media giants Twitter and Facebook.
The video is a short clip announcing the arrival of Trump’s own platform which promises to serve as “a place to speak freely and safely.”
And it has all the dramatics you’d expect from the former President.
“In a time of silence and lies,” captions on the video read over news reports of Twitter’s permanent ban of a man who 75 million people voted for in 2020.
“A beacon of freedom arises. A place to speak freely and safely,” it continues. “Straight from the Desk of Donald J. Trump.”
While promising a place to speak freely, the site appears to be more of a blog in its current form, containing posts of Trump’s past media statements. It does not, as of yet, feature an area for supporters or followers to comment.
🚨President Trump’s website is a great resource to find his latest statements and highlights from his first term in office, but this is not a new social media platform. We’ll have additional information coming on that front in the very near future.🚨 https://t.co/m9ymmHofmI

Trump Communications Platform A Response To Bans
It had been speculated for months that Trump may attempt to launch his own social media platform as a means to combat bans from sites like Twitter and Facebook.
This site doesn’t address that.
Jason Miller, a senior adviser to Trump, assures fans that, “We’ll have additional information coming on that front in the very near future.”
Facebook announced Wednesday that they are upholding Trump’s ban on their platform. Twitter already permanently banned the former President.

Ironically, posts on the “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump” communications platform have prominent share buttons for both big tech companies.
The new site does allow the President to keep in touch with supporters who may not have signed up for his email list, where these statements have already been delivered.
Excellent news from Trump advisor as the centre-right needs its own social media platform:
• “President Trump’s website is not a new social media platform”
• “We’ll have additional information coming on that front in the very near future.”#freespeech https://t.co/AlZv2XSU5B

There Needs To Be More
There needs to be a stronger call for free speech in this country and the former President needs to lead the way.
A concerted effort by the left to silence conservatives has been unrelenting.
Black Lives Matter, a group more closely aligned with the far-left politically, just released a list of demands in which they call on Trump to be “permanently” banned from “all digital media platforms.”
“Trump has always used his digital media platforms recklessly and irresponsibly to spread lies and disinformation,” their demand list reads. “He must be stopped from encouraging his mob and further endangering our communities.”
Black Lives Matter released an updated set of demands and is giving people the opportunity to sign their name onto the new list.
“Trump must also be banned from holding elected office in the future.”https://t.co/oqjK4BN5dB

Last week, employees at book publisher Simon & Schuster filed a petition demanding the company cut ties with authors associated with the previous administration.
The petition requests that the publisher avoid treating “the Trump administration as a ‘normal’ chapter in American history.”
Woke mob pressuring Simon & Schuster to cancel more books. Head of S&S replies, “We come to work to publish, not to cancel.” 😂 Since when? Order here the book Simon & Schuster tried to cancel! https://t.co/CUHpkvMIrI

Conservatives should have listened when Big Tech was censoring less savory individuals like Alex Jones and Milo Yiannopoulos.
Instead of having the attitude that, ‘Well, this is okay because they’re not good people,’ conservatives should have recognized that fascists on the left were never going to let up once the floodgates opened.
They won’t stop until speech from conservatives – even the former President of the United States – is permanently banned in America.

We need President Trump now more than ever. In just a few short months, the Dems who are controlling the senile Biden ( Susan Rice, Obama, China et al) have done so much damage to this last free country on earth. Wake up DEM voters…can you see the damage you voted for???
It's just a matter of time…tick..tock tick…tock..
So happy we can hear our President Trump again. Truth matters. Even if the elite population and their communists agenda thinks not. Why to go TRUMP.
This Trump "blog" will never be a real social media platform.
I will be a listener to this platform Mr Trump may have faults. Like us all but one thing you can't fault him in is he loves this country and is very concerned at the wring direction uncle joe and his pals are taking us in. Thank you for standing with us to fight the terrorist aka. Dems blm antifa
I am looking forward to a Social Media platform from former President Trump! Can't wait . It will be just wonderful
BLM is the liers here, not trump…..
I try to donate , but had problems. I think you should Pay Pal, i do not like given my card number on the computer.
The only people endangering the communities is BLM!!
Cue the chorus of 200 decibel REEEEEES
Pleading for President Trump to join Gab and Parler. Also we want a Trump Channel on Rumble where Trump staff can post videos of Rallies (new and old) & speeches. If Trump's people are worried about the bad days of vicious trolling by Trump's opponents, as a private citizen Trump has the right to block haters on Gab and Parler. This social media is for Trump's supporters, so our beloved President can speak to us as Opposition Leader against the Biden Tyranny.
The BLM who have rioted and looted, doing billions of dollars in damage have a lot of GALL talking about anybody ELSE "encouraging a mob" and "endangering communities" I guess trying to burn down courthouses and police stations with people inside them doesn't count as "endangering communities?"
I see someone did a down vote as if freedom of speech & developing a method of exercising it was a bad thing. Is that you following my posts again Zuckerberg?
Not fond of Trump in the way that most of his supporters are. However I am fond of his desire to give Americans back their will to be free thinking Liberty seeking Free Market Capitalists by moving the social engineers out of the control mechanisms they now force upon citizens. Also have a great deal of respect in the way he is telling Big Tech censors that they can not force him to give up his free speech. The Big techies need to get this message & understand that we would rather go to Trumps platform then be censored on theirs.
TG Trump is trying his best not to let the Lame Brains turn this into a dictator run country – whats gonna happen when china takes over – oh thats right it already has and the basement dwellers and Hollyweirdos are so wrapped up in themselves and what Noun a person should be called they don't even take on minute in a year to thank our veterans current and past for their freedoms – well guess what pretty soon we will not have a military to protect your lousy butts anymore and thats when the real crying will begin and of course it will again be Trumps fault because they cannot see the forest thru the trees
BLM SHOULD BE BANNED NOT PRESIDENT TRUMP.
He got banned by big tech, what makes YOU think he has to listen to your drivel?
The dumb Donald blocks my messages. He probably wouldn't understand 'em anyway.
Concerning the Leftists, in our 'government' and elsewhere in the country, they are working in concert to silence conservatives and all opposition to their plans and their narrative.
"Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear."—Harry S. Truman
And one more…
"When even one American – who has done nothing wrong – is forced by fear to shut his mind and close his mouth – then all Americans are in peril."—Harry S. Truman
'All' of us need to think about these two quotes. Oh, well…I guess I have 'just' one more…
"We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force."—Ayn Rand
The democrat party has become nothing, if not sick and ugly.
Funny thing about it is the more they attempt to suppress conservative messages, the stronger conservatives become. Since the media rarely have an argument that hold up against the conservative message, there is not much hope for their success.
What a bunch of horsesh%t. Black lives don’t matter. All lives matter. Get over it.
This country needs a "president" and a direction with leadership. We don't have one now.
anything the black raciest group BLM is against I am all for,
I have the website. Where is the new platform? I miss President Trumps posts.
Can't wait for it to be public !
I am so happy that you are back Mr President !! We have missed you and prayed for you every day since you took office , even before that actually . We have been so blessed that you accepted the challenge to make our great country free and proud again ! We have been so heartbroken to witness all the evil things that have been done and said to you and your family . But you made us a promise and you let nothing stop you from keeping that promise to this nation and put yourself through hell to keep it . We want you to know that we love and appreciate and thank God for you and your great family ever single day !

Black lives matter is not free speech, when destroying, killing. stealing, costing a lot billions of dollars across this nation. I have no respect for them and many others don't. As it affects taxes, all people, even themselves in food, groceries, and much more. By burning buildings down and all they are doing to destroy this country. Hurting police officers,disobeying the LAWS of our LAND. not theirs to destroy.
Trump must have the full list of his followers as well as all the tweets during his Presidency, his new platform will kill FB over the next 6 months.
Great Job as Trump used to say.
Giuliani Lays Off Staff as Legal Fights and Divorces Drain His Wallet
Over the past few days, Rudy Giuliani’s allies have been shamelessly begging Donald Trump to cover his former personal attorney’s legal fees as a federal investigation into his conduct gets more and more serious. Now, a new report from Politico has laid out the extent of Giuliani’s cashflow problems. The site reports the Trump ally has gotten rid of “several staffers and independent contractors” in recent weeks to help shrink his monthly outlays. The pressure has ramped up on Giuliani since federal agents raided his home and office last week, leaving him staring at a long and expensive legal fight. He’s already being sued for defamation by voting-machine company Dominion, and reportedly pays tens of thousands of dollars every month in alimony. In 2019, he butt-dialled an NBC News reporter and was heard complaining: “The problem is we need some money.”
Where's "Donald deep pockets?" One-way Loyalty!
Best of luck, President Trump, on your new platform! Send chills, cause gnashing of teeth, and put the fear of God into the Democrats/leftists souls…and make them wish they NEVER did what they've done to you! Release, and unleash, your own "Kraken" on that vile crowd, and take no prisoners. It's way past time for the left to pay the piper….and you're just the man to do it! Godspeed!
It'll be more fun to watch you scream at the sky in Nov, 2023.
It'll be fun to watch Trump make a fool of himself.

I've banned facebook youtube and twitter. Go and do likewise.
Ahh, DimBulbocraps and their reliance on personal attacks when their lack of critical thinking hamstrings them.
He ONLY aims to insult, with him being a leftist. I do believe, with this picture, he insinuated that you are a PIG….so, do you find that "amusing"?
In order for you to be insulted by someone…you would have value their opinion, first.
Oh you kid!
Stick to "amuse" or "insult", because you're lousy at "informing", pal.
