All the Big Tech platforms (and even some of the smaller ones) rapidly banned Trump from their site services in the aftermath of January 6th, 2021’s riot at the Capitol. In doing so they crossed a line that many Democrats wanted crossed, demanding it done in the years beforehand.

The Capitol riot excuse gave sites like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter the public relations cover they needed to justify silencing the President of the United States. In the immediate aftermath world leaders like Angela Merkel expressed their disgust that these social media companies wielded such immense authority.

But today that symbolism is eradicated. As former President Trump today officially unveiled his own site platform: “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump.”

It looks a lot like a Twitter feed, likely to coincide with what became a usual talking point through the Trump presidency.

According to Fox News the arrangement is “one-way communication,” per their sources on the matter.

Tuesday’s reveal is a significant step in the story of Trump’s social media situation. It’s an answer to the speculation and rumors that the former President would be joining alternative platforms like Parler or Gab.

The pre-emptive timing of the site’s launch comes only a day before Facebook’s Oversight Board intends to decide whether or not Trump will ever be allowed back on Zuckerberg’s social media site.
