Former President Donald Trump has set up his own personal message board to share his views for all to see, as his months-long bans from sites such as Twitter and Facebook continue.
What are the details?
The feed is a running list of undated statements from the former president, with the most recent attacking House Republican Conference Chairwoman Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) — who continues to criticize Trump over the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol.
“Heartwarming to read new polls on big-shot warmonger Liz Cheney of the great State of Wyoming,” Trump wrote. “She is so low that her only chance would be if vast numbers of people run against her which, hopefully, won’t happen. They never liked her much, but I say she’ll never run in a Wyoming election again!”
Visitors to the page are unable to comment on the posts, but there are options for sharing the messages to Facebook or Twitter. However, Twitter did not allow the content to be shared when TheBlaze attempted to do so. Facebook did allow the posts to appear on its site.
There are also buttons where users can contribute money, and to sign up to be notified whenever Trump posts a new message.
According to The Washington Examiner, “The technology for the platform appears to come from Campaign Nucleus, a ‘digital ecosystem made for efficiently managing political campaigns and organizations’ that was initially developed by former campaign manager Brad Parscale.”
“This is just a one-way communication,” one source familiar with Trump’s new messaging center told Fox. “This system allows Trump to communicate with his followers.”
Trump adviser Jason Miller tweeted after the rollout, “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.”
Trump was banned from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Snapchat following the Jan. 6 Capitol attack.
The former president’s new message feed comes the day before Facebook’s oversight board is set to announce whether his ban from the site will be permanent.
According to The Washington Post:
“The impending decision by the Oversight Board, a less than one-year-old body that describes itself as an “experiment” in the regulation of online speech, could be the most consequential decision ever regarding free speech on social media, according to experts. It could also alter the way that social media companies treat public figures going forward.”
