Former President Donald Trump has launched an official website, 45office.com, that serves to promote his four years in office and allow supporters to stay in touch.
The home page, with photos of Trump with world leaders, with his wife and with military figures, features this message: “The Office of Donald J. Trump is committed to preserving the magnificent legacy of the Trump Administration, while at the same time advancing the America First agenda.”
The “About” section features an 850-word recollection citing Trump’s achievements, including energy and border security, strengthening NATO and other international alliances, as well as his response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Trump, with a significant influence on today’s Republican Party, is likely still considering a presidential run in 2024.
Twitter, Facebook and other social sites suspended Trump’s accounts after the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
To stay relevant, a sound social media strategy is a must. Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, also a senior adviser, stopped efforts by Trump’s team to join fringe social media platforms such as Parler and Gab.
In an early-March interview with Fox News, Trump spokesman Jason Miller said Trump would launch his own platform in two to three months.
The biography on Trump’s new site includes: “Donald J. Trump launched the most extraordinary political movement in history, dethroning political dynasties, defeating the Washington Establishment, and becoming the first true outsider elected as President of the United States.”
The photos include Trump boarding Air Force One, meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un and, risking a stereotype, kissing a baby.
Clearly, there is no promotional value to detailing his impeachment trials, therefore no mention appears.
Regarding Trump’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, it says Trump “acted early and decisively to ban travel from China and Europe, which saved countless lives.”
