On the heels of, “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump,” on Wednesday, the former president’s team created the handle @DJTDesk on Twitter.

Trump’s “From the Desk” page is essentially a blog with a timeline format that resembles both Twitter and Facebook’s platforms. In the site’s brief life thus far, Trump has made a series of scattered, combative posts attacking the likes of Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). He also lambasted Twitter, Facebook and Google by name.

“What Facebook, Twitter, and Google have done is a total disgrace and an embarrassment to our Country,” Trump wrote in a post on Wednesday. “Free Speech has been taken away from the President of the United States because the Radical Left Lunatics are afraid of the truth, but the truth will come out anyway, bigger and stronger than ever before. The People of our Country will not stand for it! These corrupt social media companies must pay a political price, and must never again be allowed to destroy and decimate our Electoral Process.” headtopics.com

Both Facebook and Twitter banned Trump from their platforms in the wake of the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, which left several people dead.Twitterpenned a blog post about its permanent suspensionof Trump, saying it did so “due to the risk of further incitement of violence.”

“In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action,” the company wrote. “Ourexists to enable the public to hear from elected officials and world leaders directly. It is built on a principle that the people have a right to hold power to account in the open.”

Facebook CEOslammed the insurrectionas a demonstration by Trump to “use his remaining time in office to undermine the peaceful and lawful transition of power to his elected successor, Joe Biden.”“We believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great,” Zuckerberg wrote in a Facebook post at the time. “Therefore, we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete.”

The former guy is going crazy. He has nothing new or original to say, but can’t properly vent every five minutes to the world. 😄😄❤️ This is just sad. He’s like the guy who got dumped and he keeps showing up at your work or calling you from public phones......sad Hahahaha! Brilliant. What a stupid bunch of no hopers.

thank you very much for your work Donald Trump must really scare them. DineshDSouza Dil mera sona hai What did he think would happen? The man couldn’t outwit a used condom. Moron Oh. How pathetic is this. I thought he was going to create his own platform. Whatever happened to that? I’ve never seen a more thirsty senior citizen. Pathetic

Facebook’s political nightmare deepensFacebook may have hoped that life in Washington would get easier after its oversight board ruled on Trump’s fate on the social network. Instead, it's facing a whole new round of censure, months after suspending Trump. What Trump did was a total disgrace and an embarrassment to our Country. Free Speech was abused by the President of the United States. Politicians like Trump, and news outlets like FOX must pay both a financial and political price. Never again 👎

Why Trump’s new blog could lead to more social media takedownsTrump has launched a web page making it easier for users to post his remarks verbatim to both Facebook and Twitter, and it could lead to more run-ins with the social media companies policies. Perfect! The less I have to see of you Trumpturds, the better! DrSNWilson Let’s see if twitter TwitterSupport TwitterSafety actually enforces its policies on proxy accounts of banned accounts. And these then can be reported as harmful, disinformation and taken down from these platforms
