Trump Launches New Platform Where He Can ‘Speak Freely’
By Movieguide® Staff
In response to Facebook, Twitter, and other members of Big Tech who have sought to silence conservative voices, former President Donald Trump recently announced his new communication platform where he can “speak freely and safely.”
The web platform is called “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump” and can be found at www.DonaldJTrump.com/desk.
At launch, Trump has posted comments, images and videos without any restrictions or bans.
“In a time of silence and lies, a beacon of freedom arises,” a video said on the platform. “A place to speak freely and safely.”
Campaign Nucleus, which was created by Trump’s former campaign manager Brad Parscale, powers the platform.
The platform also allows visitors to like his posts and share them on Facebook and Twitter. However, followers of Trump are unable to leave replies.
“This is just a one-way communication,” one source told Fox News. “This system allows Trump to communicate with his followers.”
The social platform emerged on May 4.
“President Trump’s website is a great resource to find his latest statements and highlights from his first term in office, but this is not a new social media platform,” senior advisor Jason Miller told Fox News. “We’ll have additional information coming on that front in the very near future.”
The unveiling of Trump’s new website comes a day before Facebook’s Oversight Board concluded to uphold the suspension of Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts.

Post-inauguration, Facebook referred the final decision for the indefinite suspension to an oversight board. According to The Washington Post, the board is an independent Facebook-funded group composed of international professionals who have the power to review and even overturn Facebook’s decision.
The referral marks the first significant case for the board. It is highly anticipated as big tech is under scrutiny for its attack on free speech.
“Facebook had the option of asking the board to make an expedited decision for a quick turnaround, but considering the gravity of the case, it chose to allow the board to take its usual 90 days to process the case,” WIRED reported. “(Of course, it could issue its judgement sooner.) One of the four cochairs of the 20-person board will assign the case to a panel, which typically consists of five people (one must be in the North American region), and they will consider whether, as a major political player, Trump will be welcomed back. The former President will have an opportunity to present his side of the argument to the board. Meanwhile, Trump’s indefinite suspension will hold.”
