Trump is back online

But not on Twitter or Facebook… After a 4-month hiatus from social media, a web page titled ‘From the Desk of Donald J Trump’ was unveiled yesterday. Resembling a Twitter-like blog, users can share Trump’s snackable musings on Facebook and Twitter. There were talks of Trump launching his own social media platform after he was banned indefinitely from most platforms following the attack on the US Capitol by his supporters on 6 January. But his senior adviser Jason Miller said more information will be “coming on that front in the very near future”. Trump will need to develop his own social platform if he wants to get amongst it after Facebook upheld his indefinite ban overnight. It will review the decision in another 6 months.
