Trump launches new communications platform

Donald Trump has launched a new communications website, which says it will publish content “straight from the desk” of the former US president, writs BBC.

Mr Trump was banned by Twitter and suspended by Facebook and YouTube after the Capitol riots in January.

The former president has since been releasing statements by press release - which the new website will now host.

Users will be able to like posts - and also share them on Twitter and Facebook accounts.

The move comes a day before a decision is due from Facebook"s Oversight Board on whether to permanently ban Mr Trump.
