Trump is considering running for the presidency again
So it is clear that Trump will be denied access to the powerful social media platform for the time being. Already in January, the short message service Twitter decided to permanently block the Trump account with about 88 million followers due to the ongoing disinformation of the 45th US President. Twitter continues to adhere to this decision.
In recent months, Trump has increasingly emailed his followers and gave his favorite channel Fox News several lengthy interviews. Compared to “Fox” presenter Sean Hannity, he said last weekHe is seriously considering running for the White House in 2024.
Trump is blogging now
The new news platform Trump promised in the spring soon after he was banned on Twitter was also waiting with impatience. On Wednesday night, his team unveiled the new digital trumpet that the 74-year-old former president intends to communicate directly and unfiltered with the outside world in the future. The platform is called “From Donald J Trump’s office” So far it is more like a blog with short articles than a forum for political interaction.
In short text messages, Trump slammed the unpleasant representatives of the Republican Party who once voted to impeach him and described the “rigged 2020 elections” as “the big lie.” Interactivity options such as the comment function are completely missing. In a 30-second video message, Trump praised his blog as a place where people can speak “freely and safely” – by that he means above all himself.
“In a time of silence and lies, the beacon of freedom erupts here.”
