Due to being banned from Twitter and Facebook, former President Donald Trump has launched a new tool on his campaign website in order to share his thoughts with his followers.

The tool is called “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump” and it includes dozens of posts from Trump, dating back to March 24.

Posts appear to be able to be shared on Facebook and Twitter. However, there doesn’t appear to be a way to respond or engage with the posts.

Back in March, an adviser for Trump said the former president was planning to return to social media with his own platform in the coming months.

It is unclear if this is the platform in question or if it is a separate project.
