That Donald Trump, already ex-president of the United States – it is incredible that he became one – was not going to be quiet for long was a palpable fact. But his return may be more viral than expected. After what many Americans considered an affront to their country, fomenting the assault on the Capitol, the social networks that were already having a heavy hand with Trump decided that it was okay.
Facebook does not want him and suspended him, Twitter does not love him and directly banned him. What would you do if you were him? Exactly: Launch your own social network to complain there.
Donald Trump’s social network
According to the Deadline medium last March, Jason Miller – Trump’s aide – told Fox News “Media Buzz” that the former president planned to return in a few months with a new social platform. Miller did not give details, but in his words, this social network “will completely redefine the landscape.” In fact, Trump has hinted in the past about these types of plans, and after his public backlash after the Capitol, it seems that He seeks to return with something in which he has a voice and absolute vote, as well as serving as a platform of concentration for all his followers.
At the same time, this totally own social network would serve to return in a big way to the political and public arena, and according to Deadline it would have weight in the eternal political battle of Democrats against Republicans, since “it would galvanize a conservative movement that has been fractured by the strict controls on other social networking services and regret by service providers ”.

But who would help you set up that social network? Trump has millions of fans and millions of dollars, but American society does not forget what happened last January. Whether Trump wants to set up his own Facebook is one thing, whether or not he can get the infrastructure he needs is another.
Deadline noted that Shopify and Stripe went out of business with Trump following the US Capitol riots, and major cloud providers such as Amazon or Microsoft may be reluctant to lend support given allegations that Trump stimulated the violence on Capitol Hill.
