Trump's personal website
It will host the ex-president's speeches and his supporters will be able to publish them on social networks. However, they will not be able to comment on the material on the new site.
Former US President Donald Trump has launched his own online platform through which he will be able to communicate with his supporters, Fox News reported. Trump had previously blocked social media, including Twitter, which was the former president's main channel for communicating with supporters.
The platform is called From the Desk of Donald J. Trump.
It would allow Trump to post statements, photos and videos and his supporters to post them on social media. However, they will not be able to comment on the content, Fox News specifies.
"It's a one-way type of communication", said a TV source familiar with the principles of the platform.
Fox News has suggested that the platform is based on Campaign Nucleus, a digital ecosystem designed to manage political campaigns and organisations. Campaign Nucleus was created by Brad Parscale, a former senior adviser to Trump's campaign staff.
Former presidential adviser Jason Miller clarified that the new platform will offer Trump's latest statements as well as information about his presidency. However, Miller stressed that the resource is not a social network and promised that more information on this issue will appear in the near future.
The site offers to buy products with Trump's slogan Make America great again, but the corresponding button does not lead anywhere yet. There is also a donation function on the platform, but that too is not working yet.
The decision to block Trump was made by social media following the riots that the former president's supporters staged in Washington on 6 January. A meeting was due to take place on that day, with plans to approve the results of November's election and Joe Biden's victory. However, protests by Trump supporters began around the Capitol, later breaking into the building.
