EXCEPTIONAL: On Tuesday, former President Trump launched a communication platform that will eventually give him the opportunity to communicate directly with his followers, after months of a ban on sites such as Twitter and Facebook.
The platform “From the desk of Donald J. Trump “appears at www.DonaldJTrump.com/desk.

The space will allow Trump to post comments, images and videos.
The technology seems to be driven by Campaign Nucleus, the “digital ecosystem designed to effectively manage political campaigns and organizations,”
The space allows Trump to post and allows followers to share the former president’s posts on Twitter and Facebook, but the new platform does not have a feature that allows users to “respond” or engage with Trump’s posts.
“It’s just one-way communication,” a source familiar with the space told Fox News. “This system allows Trump to communicate with his followers.”
Trump’s new platform came on Tuesday after advisers told Fox News that the former president plans to “move forward” to create his own social media platform after being banned by Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Snapchat after the Capitol riot.

“President Trump’s website is a great resource for finding his latest statements and highlights from his first term, but it’s not a new social media platform,” senior adviser Jason Miller told Fox News. “We will have additional information on this front in the very near future.”
The spread of the platform comes just a day before Facebook’s supervisory board announced its decision to suspend Trump from Facebook and Instagram.
In January, the board adopted a case referral from Facebook to review the ban, as well as provide recommendations on suspension policies when the consumer is a political leader.
Facebook has moved to block Trump “indefinitely” after the January 6 uprising in the US Capitol, with CEO Mark Zuckerberg saying he “believes the risks of allowing the president to continue using our service during this period are simply too big. “
Despite Facebook’s decision on Wednesday, a Twitter spokesman told Fox News that Trump had been suspended from tweets.
A Facebook spokesman declined to comment on Trump’s new platform. A Twitter spokesman did not immediately respond to Fox News’s request for comment.
