As a review board ponders Donald Trump’s future access to Facebook, the former president launched “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump,” a new platform via which he can reach his followers directly, bypassing the social media sites that heavily restricted and, ultimately, excluded his voice from their networks.

How does the most famous tweeter in the world feel about his current relationship with social media? According to some of his closest advisers, he’s thrilled with the reach of his daily media releases and looking forward to increased communication with his supporters, regardless of Wednesday’s expected decision by a Facebook oversight board about whether to restore his access to the platform.

“His press releases have been getting an extraordinary amount of news coverage and attention,” said Stephen Miller, former senior adviser to Trump.

Since leaving office, Trump has taken to sending out brief email releases through his Save America PAC. One to two, sometimes three or four, emails a day are standard, each offering a quick glimpse into what the 45th president is thinking about. This week, commentary has revolved primarily around the intraparty split between his own grassroots MAGA wing of the GOP, and a Washington wing represented by Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney and Utah Sen. Mitt Romney.

From the Desk of Donald J. Trump” is accessible through the former president’s website and appears to be, for now, a consolidated distribution hub for the former president to post his daily releases. The page allows his followers to share Trump posts to their own Twitter and Facebook pages and, according to Fox News, appears to be supported by Campaign Nucleus, the digital software firm created by former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale.

Following the Jan. 6 Capitol breach, the then-president was swiftly banned from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and Snapchat. Wednesday morning, Facebook’s quasi-independent oversight board — which launched last year and began hearing cases in October — will rule on whether to allow Trump to rejoin the social media platform, in addition to Instagram, which is owned by Facebook. The board is comprised of 20 members, including a former prime minister of Denmark, as well as journalists, academics, and experts in the field of human rights.

The rollout of Trump’s personal platform may be his way of signaling that whatever the board decides, he’s moved on. After promising to create his own platform, it is unclear that Trump wants to return to parts of the internet where he knows he is not welcome, and may have to self-censor as a condition of his continued presence.

“What Big Tech has done to censor free speech and to censor our president is unconscionable,” Miller told David Brody during a Tuesday on “The Water Cooler.” However, says Miller, Trump’s “gift for being able to put these extraordinarily intricate ideas into accessible formats, has proven to be a tremendous way of getting the message out.”

Currently, “From the Desk of” is a one-way communication page. But sources close to the former president say that, in the future, a platform may include some sort of pay-per-view video network, as well as more traditional social media functions that allow followers to interact with posts.

Trump communications adviser Jason Miller says that additional information about the news social media platform is on its way. In the meantime, they say, Trump is happy with his daily releases, believing them to be more elegant than his tweets ever were.

BREAKING: Trump has some questions for Pelosi to investigate with her Jan 6th commission

Published

President Trump has some questions for Nancy Pelosi to investigate with her Jan. 6th commission, which debuts tomorrow morning and will no doubt get all the media coverage tomorrow.

Here’s what Trump wrote:

BREAKING: Trump has some questions for Pelosi to investigate with her Jan 6th commission

 
Notice that Trump leads with Pelosi investigating herself, which is a great point to make considering she refused to allow 10,000 National Guard troops that Trump had requested before the riot.

The partisan hearing begins tomorrow morning at 9:30AM with a focus on police testimony. I’ll probably post it anyway because, unfortunately, it’s newsworthy. But I’m curious to know if you want to watch it. Let me know in the comments.

Trump endorses Paxton over Bush in fight for Texas attorney general

Published

on

Former President Donald Trump Monday endorsed current Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton for reelection over his Republican rival and fellow Trump supporter George P. Bush.

“Attorney General Ken Paxton has been bravely on the front line in the fight for Texas, and America, against the vicious and very dangerous Radical Left Democrats, and the foolish and unsuspecting RINOs that are destroying our Country,” Trump said in a statement.

Bush had been vying for Trump’s endorsement in his bid to unseat Paxton for the position of Texas attorney general. Bush, the son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, has received criticism from both the public and his own family over his support for Trump.

Trump endorsed Paxton, arguing the current Texas attorney general had a strong commitment to securing the border, the Second Amendment, being tough on crime and other beliefs that “will keep Texas safe.”

“It is going to take a PATRIOT like Ken Paxton to advance America First policies in order to Make America Great Again. Ken has my Complete and Total Endorsement for another term as Attorney General of Texas,” Trump said.

Trump warns Republicans on Democrats’ effort to ‘completely change America’ through reconciliation

Published

on

Trump urged Republicans to deny Democrats a quorum to stop them from using reconciliation.

Former President Donald Trump sent a warning to Republicans on Wednesday, alleging that Democrats are trying to “completely change America” through reconciliation.

“Republicans must take seriously the effort by Democrats to completely change America through the Reconciliation Process,” Trump said in a statement.  “Republicans must push back for the sake of our Country and, far less importantly, the sake of the Republican Party!”


The former president argued that Democrats suggest using reconciliation to pass mail-in-ballot laws. Earlier in the month, Sen. Amy Klobuchar suggested that reconciliation be used to pass the Democrat-backed For The People Act, an expanded voting measure, according to the Associated Press.


“Any effort to dictate national Mail-In Voting will be a disaster for our Country and for conservatism,” Trump said, adding that if it’s passed, “there will never be a Republican elected to high office again.”

Trump then urged Republicans to “fight this” and to “deny Democrats a quorum if that is what it takes to make sure that the Democrats can’t use reconciliation.”
