President Trump Launches New “Communication Platform”
By Anthony T
President Trump’s new communication platform is up and running.
The platform is called from the Desk of Donald J. Trump and will give Trump the ability to communicate without being censored.
As of right now users can’t reply or interact with Trump on the platform but at least they can stay in the loop and hear what he has to say.

President Trump launched a communications platform on Tuesday, which will serve as “a place to speak freely and safely,” and will eventually give him the ability to communicate directly with his followers, after months of being banned from sites like Twitter and Facebook.
The platform, “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump” appears on www.DonaldJTrump.com/desk.
The space allows Trump to post comments, images, and videos.
“In a time of silence and lies,” a video Trump posted to the platform Tuesday night says. The video then plays news reports describing his suspension from Twitter.
“A beacon of freedom arises. A place to speak freely and safely,” the video continues, showing the new platform. “Straight from the desk of Donald J. Trump.”
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.
Here’s what the site looks like:
So as you can see the site gives Trump the ability to speak what’s on his mind.
The Hill had more on the story:
President Trump has rolled out a new tool to communicate with his supporters in lieu of platforms such as Twitter and Facebook, which banned his accounts.
Trump’s platform, “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump,” features videos from the former president and statements from his leadership PAC, which have been sent out over email for several weeks.
Supporters can sign up to get notified when Trump sends out a message from his site, similar to functions on other social media platforms.
While users do not have the ability to reply to Trump’s posts, they can like them and share them on their own Twitter or Facebook accounts.
“This is just a one-way communication,” one source familiar with the space told Fox News, which was the first to report on the platform. “This system allows Trump to communicate with his followers.”
