The book ‘From the Desk of Donald J. Trump’ contains messages from the former president of the United States that others may like and share on Twitter and Facebook, where Trump remains banned.
Former U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday opened a space on his website to post messages that others can share on Twitter and Facebook, sites that remain banned.
The move comes a day before Facebook Inc.’s oversight committee decides whether to maintain Trump’s indefinite suspension of the platform. Trump banned a number of social media platforms after his supporters killed the U.S. Capitol storm on Jan. 6.
Trump’s top adviser, Jason Miller, tweeted that this collection of messages was not a platform for social media that Trump intends to launch.
“We will have additional information in the very near future in the future,” he tweeted.
Fox News reported that the website is called “From Donald J. Trump’s Desk” and there are messages that Trump can share and like. A source familiar with the matter said it was built by Campaign Nucleus, a digital services company created by former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale.
Publications on the site said the false claims that Trump lost the 2020 election were widespread voter fraud and condemned Republicans who have been critical of him, such as Senator Mitt Romney and Rep. Liz Cheney.
Twitter Inc. and Facebook have both removed content posted from other accounts, saying they tried to circumvent Trump’s bans. Companies did not immediately respond to requests for comment on how to handle shared messages from the new space.
Trump used it a lot and Twitter, which had 88 million followers, said his ban is final, even if he is running for office again.
Alphabet Inc.’s Youtube has said it will revive Trump’s channel when it decides to reduce the risk of violence.
