Trump launches social platform for himself with only share and no reply button

Former US President Donald Trump has launched his social platform long after he was banned by Twitter and Facebook.

"This is just a one-way communication," one source familiar with the space told Fox News Tuesday. “This system allows Trump to communicate with his followers."

Since it surfaced, the page has been featuring posts by the former president.

The space allows Trump’s followers to like the posts or share them to Facebook and Twitter.

One post read: “Heartwarming to read new polls on big-shot warmonger Liz Cheney of the great State of Wyoming. She is so low that her only chance would be if vast numbers of people run against her which, hopefully, won’t happen. They never liked her much, but I say she’ll never run in a Wyoming election again!”

Former Trump administration senior adviser Jason Miller speculated in March that the platform would “completely redefine the game” and rake in “tens of millions” of users.
In an interview a month earlier, Twitter’s chief financial officer, Ned Segal, said the company’s ban on Trump’s account will remain even if he decides to run again for office.

Trump’s page surfaced after Facebook Inc.’s independent oversight board said it would issue a ruling Wednesday morning to determine whether he is allowed to return to the platform.

Trump was  banned over inciting violence at the Jan. 6 storming of his supporters into the Capitol to stop Congress from certifying the victory of now-President Joe Biden.
