Donald Trump launches a new communication space


Housed on his website, the former US president's posts can be shared by other users on social networks like Twitter or Facebook, where he remains banned.

Former US President Donald Trump on Tuesday, May 4, launched a space on his website where he can post messages that can be shared by other users on Twitter and Facebook, platforms where he remains banned.

This movement comes a day before the decision of Facebook's supervisory board on the advisability of maintaining Donald Trump's suspension from the social network.

The former White House tenant has been banned from most platforms following the deadly Jan.6 assault on the U.S. Capitol by his supporters.

Accusations of fraud

On the site, Trump's posts echo the unfounded claim that he lost the 2020 presidential election due to widespread electoral fraud and disparages Republican cronies who have criticized him, such as Senator Mitt Romney and Representative. Liz Cheney.

Both Twitter and Facebook have removed content posted by other user accounts who they believe were trying to circumvent the ban on Donald Trump.

A Twitter spokesperson said that sharing of content from Donald Trump's website would be allowed as long as the content did not violate network rules, but circumvention attempts would not be allowed: for example, imitate the suspended account to try to replace it.

Facebook did not immediately respond to a request for comment on how it would handle posts shared from the new space.

Twitter, which Donald Trump used daily and had 88 million subscribers, said his ban was permanent, even though he is again a presidential candidate. Alphabet-owned YouTube has said it will reinstate Trump's channel when it feels the risk of violence has diminished.
