REPORT: Trump Considering Opening Account With New Facebook/Twitter Social Media Competitor

The report comes amid tension between conservatives and social media giants.

Amid censorship of conservative media by tech giants, a Tuesday POLITICO report said that President Donald J. Trump is considering opening an account on Parler, a Twitter-esque social network.

“According to one person close to Trump’s campaign, the president’s team is considering setting him up with an account on the site,” the report said. “A senior Trump campaign official said that there was no imminent plan to have the president join the platform, but that [Campaign Manager Brad] Parscale is scouting Parler.”

It is unclear what type of effect a Trump move would have on existing platforms that he uses, like Twitter. It is unlikely that Trump would stop using other forms of social media completely.

Many prominent conservatives who have been banned from Facebook and/or Twitter use Parler. Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Gavin McInnes all have accounts. Candace Owens – recently suspended but quickly reinstated on Facebook – has a Parler account. Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) also uses the social network.

The news of Trump’s potential use of Parler comes as another prominent conservative was banned from Twitter Tuesday morning.

Big League Politics reported:

Tuesday, another prominent conservative journalist was banned from Twitter.

“Nick Monroe has been permanently suspended from Twitter. This is the email he received explaining why,” said right wing personality Brittany Pettibone.

Monroe, known for his long Tweet threads and shoe-leather research which often exposed conniving leftist media and political figures, allegedly violated Twitter’s rules “against evading permanent suspension.” He had nearly 50,000 followers.

Over the weekend, Monroe busted several prominent leftist media figures for sharing a fake quote attributed to President Donald J. Trump, fabricated by TIME columnist Ian Bremmer. He made a thread exposing those who shared the quote without verifying its truthfulness, embarrassing propagandists like CNN’s Ana Navarro, Wall Street Journal’s Farnaz Fassihi, and NPR’s Pam Fessler.
