Trump about to set up his own social media platform

Over the past few months, rumors circulated about Donald Trump’s new social media network after tech giants Facebook, Twitter, and others banned him from their platforms earlier this year.
Although news about such a platform seemed to fizzle out over the past month, new reports suggest a there is a strong possibility that Trump could move forward with the plan.
Trump told several in his inner circle that he has already secured “hundreds of millions” in backing for his social media venture, even from Silicon Valley heavy-hitters who are concerned by censorship, The Washington Examiner reported.
Trump also dropped multiple hints about launching his own platform during his recent television interviews since leaving the White House.
“We’re negotiating with a number of people,” Trump told Newsmax TV.
“There is also the option of building your own site because we have more people than anybody, so you can literally build your own site.”
“But we were being really harassed on Twitter,” Trump added.
“They were putting up all sorts of flags, I guess they call them; they were flagging almost anything you said.”
Trump’s specific language has fulled speculation of coming massive announcement.
Sources close to Trump said the venture could be designed to allow Trump to engage with his tens of millions of fans without censorship.
Sources added Trump is in talks with a number of high-rolling investors.
“They aren’t the people you might expect,” the source reportedly said.
Last month, Twitter confirmed Trump’s ban from the platform is permanent, and his account would not be reinstated even if he was to return to the White House.
Twitter Chief Financial Officer Ned Segal scrambled to assure investors that Twitter would prevail despite banning its most famous and popular user.
During an interview with CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” Segal was asked about a scenario where Trump was elected president again.
The way our policies work, when you’re removed from the platform, you’re removed from the platform,” Segal said, “whether you’re a commentator, you’re a CFO, or you are a former or current public official.”
“Remember, our policies are designed to make sure that people are not inciting violence, and if anybody does that, we have to remove them from the service, and our policies don’t allow people to come back,” he added.
About Editor, cairnsnewsOne of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.
