The former President of the United States is finding a novel way to make a comeback after being permanently banned from most social media sites.
We may have thought that we had seen the last of Donald Trump but we were all very wrong. After being permanently banned from most social media sites, Trump is finding a novel way to make a comeback. And what's more, you can even book the former President of the United States and the former first lady to attend and participate in your events. You can do this by visiting Trump's new website, 45office.com. It seems to have been launched as a way to continue his presence online as well as offline with new roles that he is willing to take on.
On one particular page on his website called "scheduling request", you can invite Donald J. Trump or Melania Trump to participate in your event by filling in a form. In addition to requesting detailed information about the event, the form also contains pertinent questions about whether the media will be present and details about other notable attendees who will be present there. There is another page called "request a greeting" that will similarly allow you to "receive a greeting from Donald J. Trump and Melania Trump for your special occasion." The site also has a feedback option where you can share your thoughts with the former POTUS and FLOTUS.
Want to book Donald or Melania for an event? Trump has a new website for that https://t.co/rQlDCOvXCM— The Guardian (@guardian) March 30, 2021
The Guardian notes that it is not unusual for former presidents to sign up with professional agencies for public speakers. But what Trump seems to be doing with his site is trying to control his image while also keeping the profits from the appearances he will be making. The website's about section is an over-the-top description of Trump and Melania. Trump's lengthy biography states: "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 rest of the biography is just as charged but makes no mention of his two impeachment trials or the Capitol riots he caused.
"We're moving forward," a source told Fox News about Trump planning to start their own social media platform. "And President Trump will have his voice back one way or another." Jason Miller, a long-time Trump adviser and spokesperson for the president's 2020 campaign also hinted at a social media platform. As per CNN, the new platform will attract "tens of millions" of new users and "completely redefine the game," Miller stated. The team behind Trump's new platform is taking its time, "to do it right." The anonymous source said, "You have one shot at it. We're dotting our Is and crossing our Ts— we'll be out with something."
Even without having access to any social media, Trump still managed to make a splash recently at a wedding in Mar-a-Lago resort, Florida. A video of him making an impromptu speech at the wedding surfaced on the internet where he can be seen complaining about Biden and his handling of the immigrant situation. "I've been watching the news and they're telling me about the border, they're telling me about China, they’re telling me about Iran," Trump said, addressing the wedding crowd, according to The Denver Channel. "The border is not good. And what you see now, multiply it times 10."
Before making a lot of false claims about the 2020 Presidential elections, he asked the crowd, “So, I just say, do you miss me yet?” Whether Trump had crashed the wedding to take over the mic to finally say everything he would have tweeted, or if he was booked to attend it through his site, remains unclear. But by making the wedding about himself, he is not setting a good precedent to encourage people to have him at their events.
I think if the couple held their reception at Mar a Lago, they are probably loyal Trumpers and more than likely loved having him there no matter what he says. Who is worse? Trump or the people who cheer him on? All terrible.— Ruth regalado (@Ruthregalado3) March 29, 2021
