Former President Trump launched a communications platform on Tuesday called From the Desk of Donald J Trump which gives him the ability to communicate directly with his followers, after months of being banned from sites like Twitter and Facebook.
The site allows Trump to post comments, images, and videos.
It has a sign-up list for people to enter their phone numbers and email addresses in order to receive alerts for when Trump posts a new message.
Announcing Trump’s new platform, his spokesman Jason Miller wrote on Twitter, “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.”
The technology appears to be powered by Campaign Nucleus— the “digital ecosystem made for efficiently managing political campaigns and organizations,” created by his former campaign manager, Brad Parscale.
Fox News first reported about the new communications platform by Trump. However, contrary to the rumors, his spokesman cleared the air that the communications platform is an extension of his website, not a new social media platform.
The space is exclusively for Trump to share his views, post videos, and interact with his followers. The website carries a video of Trump and a few of his comments on the Democrats. The video says, “In a time of silence and lies. A beacon of freedom arises. A place to speak freely and safely.
