    Trump launches new communications platform months after Twitter, Facebook ban
    The space will allow Trump to post comments, images, and videos

    Facebook oversight board to hear Trump ban case
    Center for a New American Security fellow Kara Frederick offers insight on ‘Fox & Friends First.’

    EXCLUSIVE: Former President Trump launched a communications platform on Tuesday, which will serve as "a place to speak freely and safely," and will eventually give him the ability to communicate directly with his followers, after months of being banned from sites like Twitter and Facebook.

    The platform, "From the Desk of Donald J. Trump" appears on www.DonaldJTrump.com/desk.

    The space allows Trump to post comments, images, and videos.

    "In a time of silence and lies," a video Trump posted to the platform Tuesday night says. The video then plays news reports describing his suspension from Twitter.

    "A beacon of freedom arises. A place to speak freely and safely," the video continues, showing the new platform. "Straight from the desk of Donald J. Trump."

    The technology appears to be powered by Campaign Nucleus— the "digital ecosystem made for efficiently managing political campaigns and organizations," created by his former campaign manager, Brad Parscale.

    The space allows Trump to post, and allows followers to share the former president’s posts to Twitter and Facebook, however, the new platform does not have a feature to allow users to "reply" or engage with Trump’s posts.

    "This is just a one-way communication," one source familiar with the space told Fox News. "This system allows Trump to communicate with his followers."

    The site has a sign-up list for people to enter their phone numbers and email addresses in order to receive alerts for when Trump posts a new message.

    Trump’s new platform surfaced Tuesday, after advisers had told Fox News that the former president planned to "move forward" to create a social media platform of his own after being banned from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and Snapchat after the Capitol riot.

    "President Trump’s website is a great resource to find his latest statements and highlights from his first term in office, but this is not a new social media platform," senior advisor Jason Miller told Fox News. "We’ll have additional information coming on that front in the very near future."

    The rollout of the platform also comes just a day before Facebook's Oversight Board is expected to announce its decision on whether to indefinitely suspend Trump from Facebook and Instagram.

    The board in January accepted a case referral from Facebook to examine the ban, as well as to provide policy recommendations on suspensions when the user is a political leader.

    Facebook moved to block Trump "indefinitely" after the Jan. 6 riot in the U.S. Capitol, with CEO Mark Zuckerberg saying that they "believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great."

    Regardless of Facebook’s decision Wednesday a Twitter spokesperson told Fox News that Trump is permanently suspended from tweeting.

    A Facebook spokesperson declined to comment on Trump's new platform. A Twitter spokesperson did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.

    Edited to add:

    These are just a few of President Trump's posts which then can be reposted by viewers to other social networks like Facebook and Twitter.
