Donald Trump, the former president, on Tuesday launched what Fox News called a new “platform,” but in reality, as many are saying, is just a blog. It even sounds like what blogs were called in the early days of the medium: From the Desk of Donald J. Trump.
The site is part of his main site, which is now designed as a money-making/fundraising enterprise. It allows one-way communication, with Trump posting words, images, or video, and then supporters can tweet them or post them to Facebook. The “like” button does not currently work.
Many on social media mocked the former president.
It’s like his own personal twitter with absolutely NO way of responding. Essentially, EVERYONE is blocked.

Reading that Trump is essentially starting a blog, I wonder if he will read @markos book “Crashing the Gates” in preparation for the vital 2006 midterms …..

So blogging is back?

I’d just like to remind everyone that you probably don’t need to share Trump’s little blog posts like 99 percent of the time

It’s basically a blog:
So basically Trump’s starting a blog hosted on Parscale’s CRM platform. Useful for fundraising, but fundamentally not very interesting. https://t.co/VwrJZpeg6G

lol… Trump’s new “platform” was coded by a 10-year-old. I see several vulnerabilities that will be exploited by someone before the end of the night. pic.twitter.com/IdnGCfzCc3

Is anyone surprised that trumps new ‘communications platform’ is actually just a blog? I’m guessing he spent millions on what amounts to a WordPress page.

Trump launching “Twitter but only for me” is so fucking funny, fuck.

So Trump has launched a “new social platform”. Looks to me like a campaign web-page. Collects info and $.
