Twitter, which permanently banned Trump, suspended an account Thursday called “@DJTDesk” for posting messages he shared “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump,” the new platform for getting his message out.

The bio simply read: “Posts copied from Save America on behalf of the 45th POTUS; Originally composed via DonaldJTrump/Desk.”
Twitter defended its censorship, telling NBC: “As stated in our ban evasion policy, we’ll take enforcement action on accounts whose apparent intent is to replace or promote content affiliated with a suspended account.”
Trump slammed Big Tech Wednesday in a statement calling for “corrupt” social media companies to pay a political price.
“Free Speech has been taken away from the President of the United States because the Radical Left Lunatics are afraid of the truth, but the truth will come out anyway, bigger and stronger than ever before,” Trump said.
Nationally syndicated radio host Todd Starnes also slammed Facebook for its decision to continue banning Trump.
“Who wants to be a part of any online community that hates Christians, Conservatives or anyone who wants to make America great again?” the “Todd Starnes Radio Show” host asked.
