Former president Donald Trump has announced an independent social media platform that will allow direct interaction with his supporters, but the venture may already be doomed because of the influence from the usual suspects.

Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and disgraced former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale are running the project. Gab founder Andrew Torba spoke to commentator Pedro Gonzalez to explain his interactions with the Kushner sphere during negotiations earlier this year.
“As we told Mr. Kushner’s aides, Gab has no plans to sell our business or to compromise in any way our mission to defend free speech online for all people,” Torba said. “We fully expect the president’s entry into the arena to accelerate alternative technology growth trends and wish the president and his tech team well.”
“They said that they were in ‘make money mode’ and were focused on how they could financially benefit from Gab and change our free speech stance,” he added. “All I wanted to do was give the president his voice back, but Kushner and others in the president’s orbit expected me to hand the keys to the kingdom over to them and change the core mission of Gab. I wasn’t going to let that happen.”
Some of Trump’s hype men are already making the rounds talking about how Trump’s new social media platform is going to be groundbreaking, trendsetting, and spectacular.
“I do think that we’re going to see President Trump returning to social media in probably about two or three months here, with his own platform,” said Trump senior advisor Jason Miller during an appearance on Fox News’ “#MediaBuzz.” “And this is something that I think will be the hottest ticket in social media, it’s going to completely redefine the game, and everybody is going to be waiting and watching to see what exactly President Trump does.”
“This is going to be launched in the next 3 to 4 months, and it’s going to be an interactive communication tool, whereby the president will be able to post things to it, and people will be able to repost and communicate directly with him,” said former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski during a recent appearance on Newsmax TV.
Lewandowski mentioned that Trump’s platform “is not going to rely on Amazon, or Amazon servers” and will “be completely built from scratch, from the ground up.” He also said that the social media platform is “going to give [Trump] the opportunity to control not only the distribution of it, but also who participates in it,” suggesting that this is an elaborate marketing ploy rather than an authentic attempt to protect digital free speech.
Big League Politics has reported on how Parscale and Kushner have destroyed everything they have touched, perhaps being the two weakest links inside the president’s circle during his term in office:
“The most influential adviser within the Trump administration has arguably been Jared Kushner, the President’s son-in-law. He has pushed the administration to the Left, using his power to shift the White House on issues like immigration, criminal justice, and foreign policy.
As the Trump re-election campaign sputters, conservative leaders have placed the blame directly on Kushner. His fingerprints are all over the campaign strategy, as they are virtually every other aspect of the Trump operation.
“Trump has a Jared problem,” an immigration hawk who works with the White House told The Spectator. Others roll their eyes and reference “four more years of Jared” when talking about Trump’s re-election chances.
Kushner has become Trump’s go-to guy on the most important issues facing America, despite observers referring to him as “slow,” “a moron,” and “not really that bright.” Conservative leaders have remarked that Kushner knew little if anything about his own comprehensive immigration plan while he was attempting to sell the plan to them. He apparently could not speak on issues like chain migration and diversity visa lottery, being clueless about the areas in need of reform.
“He presents as someone very knowledgeable and in the know until he faces questions,” a source close to the White House said. “He goes off the record or on deep background so people don’t realize he’s a f**king idiot.”
While many attribute Kushner’s missteps to idiocy, others believe that there may be nefarious motives behind his blundering. They believe that Kushner, whose Soros connections are well-documented, is intentionally sabotaging the Trump administration on behalf of the globalist establishment.”
Trump’s social media platform is looking like more failed promise, as operatives in his circle attempt to line their pockets instead of defending freedom.
