    After being booted from Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, former President Donald Trump launched his own communications platform on Tuesday ó a platform that will allow him to exclusively share messages with his millions of followers.

    ďThe platform, ĎFrom the Desk of Donald J. Trumpí appears on www.DonaldJTrump.com/desk,Ē wrote Fox News in an exclusive report.

    A video introduction posted to the site hailed the new platform as a ďplace
    to speak freely and safelyĒ while pledging to ďSave America.Ē Visitors to the site will be able to share Trumpís posts on various social media platforms, but they will be unable to respond with comments of their own.

    ďThe space allows Trump to post, and allows followers to share the former presidentís posts to Twitter and Facebook, however, the new platform does not have a feature to allow users to Ďreplyí or engage with Trumpís posts,Ē added Fox News.

    Trumpís decision to keep the platform a one-way system of communication ultimately frees him and his staff the burden of regulating comments. User- generated comments that violate the rules of other, third-party platforms could enable those platforms to block his posts.

    President Trump had been posting on the platform going all the way back to March 24. On Monday, he used it to call out Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) for her dwindling poll numbers.

    ďHeartwarming to read new polls on big-shot warmonger Liz Cheney of the great State of Wyoming. She is so low that her only chance would be if vast numbers of people run against her which, hopefully, wonít happen. They never liked
    her much, but I say sheíll never run in a Wyoming election again!Ē he wrote.

    Also on Monday, the former president celebrated the fact that Sen. Mitt
    Romney (R-UT) was welcomed with boos and howls at the Utah GOP convention
    this last weekend. ďSo nice to see RINO Mitt Romney booed off the stage at
    the Utah Republican State Convention. They are among the earliest to have figured this guy out, a stone cold loser!Ē he wrote.

    As The Daily Wire reported, Trump strongly hinted he would run in 2024 during an interview with Candace Owens.

    ďThe answer is Iím absolutely enthused. I look forward to doing an announcement at the right time,Ē Trump said. ďAs you know, itís very early, but I think people are going to be very, very happy Ö when I make a certain announcement.Ē

    ďFor campaign finance reasons, you really canít do it too early because it becomes a whole different thing,Ē he clarified. ďOtherwise Iíd give you an answer that I think youíd be very happy with,Ē he added.

    ďSo we are looking at that very, very seriously. And uh, all Iíll say is stay tuned!Ē he concluded.

    The presidentís new communication platform comes as Facebookís ďOversight BoardĒ considers whether or not his ban on the platform will be permanent.

    ďThe Board will announce its decision on the case concerning former US President Trumpís indefinite suspension from Facebook and Instagram in the coming weeks. We extended the public comments deadline for this case, receiving 9,000+ responses,Ē the board announced on Twitter. ďThe Boardís commitment to carefully reviewing all comments has extended the case
    timeline, in line with the Boardís bylaws. We will share more information soon.Ē

    --
    Trump won.

    Actually, you can send Trump your thoughts here:

    It's highly doubtful Trump will see any of them, but you'll be wasting some time
    of one of his flunkies.

    One could easily say the exact same things about CNN, MSNBC et al.
