Trump Joins Parler After Facebook, Twitter Suspend His Account

President Donald Trump had on Thursday opened an account on Parler.

Parler is a microblogging and social networking service launched in August 2018.

Mr Trump joined Parler after the social media giants, Facebook, Twitter and Youtube suspended his accounts for violating one of their policies.

Trump had incited mobs that invaded Capitol Hill in a desperate and last-minute move to overturn the confirmation of Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United States of America.

Four people died and over 50 people were arrested in a protest that pitched Pro-Trump supporters against the lawmakers and the Police.

Mr Trump had said “If Vice President Mike Pence comes through for us, we will win the Presidency.

“Many States want to decertify the mistake they made in certifying incorrect & even fraudulent numbers in a process NOT approved by their State Legislatures (which it must be). Mike can send it back!”

The violence which rocked the US congress on Wednesday afternoon happened after Vice President Mike Pence rejected Trump’s call to reject electoral officers’ confirmation of Joe Biden.

Trump once again, vent his disappointment over his Vice’s refusal to do his bidding.

“Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certifie USA demands the truth!”

Many including the Democrats blamed President Trump for inciting violence.

Many posts via his Twitter and Facebook handles called on his supporters to go to the Capitol. One of his posts reads “Washington is being inundated with people who don’t want to see an election victory stolen by emboldened Radical Left Democrats. Our Country has had enough, they won’t take it anymore! We hear you (and love you) from the Oval Office. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!”

Since the November election, Facebook and Twitter had continued to flag the US President’s post after several claims that the election was fraudulent.

Mr Trump claimed that the radical left and fake news media stole the election from him as he deserved to be the next President.

Twitter said Trump’s posts were deleted for being ‘inaccurate’.

Trump immediately had 2.4 million followers barely an hour after he joined Parler, which prides itself as “the world’s premier free speech platform” which focuses on protecting user’s rights.

“Speak freely and express yourself openly, without fear of being ‘de-platformed’ for your views. Engage with real people, not bots. Parler is people and privacy-focused, and gives you the tools you need to curate your Parler experience,” information on the landing page of the website reads.
