    Trump gets around social media ban with new site

    Trump gets around social media ban with new site that can be shared on Facebook, Twitter

    Former President Donald Trump on Tuesday debuted a new webpage that allows him to circumvent the Facebook and Twitter bans on his accounts.


    The site, donaldjtrump.com/desk, launched with a video declaring itself a “beacon of freedom” and “a place to speak freely and safely” four months after Twitter purged the 45th president and Facebook suspended him indefinitely.


    At least for now, both Facebook and Twitter allow links to the site.


    The launch comes as Facebook and Instagram prepare to announce a decision Wednesday on whether to allow Trump to return to the platforms.

    President Trump was the best thing EVER for their businesses. Must be absolutely killing them in the process of their insanity--which I hope it ultimately does...

    Those fatheads at Fakebook and Twatter have a lot of gall trying to decide if one of the best presidents ever can post on their warped platforms.

    Glad to see his is finally coming to fruition.

    A general comment:

    I have to admire the left in a couple of ways, one of which I'll post here. They have the ability to move in mass whatever way they are told to (sheep do that). Think about it. If the democrat leadership said "stop using facebook today" facebook would probably loose a third of it's posters within a week.

    Sadly conservative gripe about facebook but I'm betting that very few of them get off & stay off of it. If we suddenly left it & said that it was because of suppression of conservative views you can bet that the stockholders would take notice & things would change. So being able to think for ourselves is actually a minus sometimes. No, I wouldn't trade to become a sheep but it does hurt us in some ways.

    They dropped Trump, Rush quit Twitter, and I dropped my Facebook account and have not touched Twitter.
    Screw'em.

    I was President of a union local once so I can move En Masse to stop shit when it is as abhorrent as the two social media shitholes we are talking about.

    I believe in destroying any and all threats to Family, Friends, Co workers, ANY CHILD, and Our Country by any and all means required to end them FOREVER!!!
    THERE can be only ONE!
