Donald Trump is quite a radioactive and toxic presence right now. This was made clear in the past half hour as 10 House Republicans voted to impeach the President.
Trump is not welcome on social media either. Both Twitter and Facebook have permanently suspended him from their platforms. Other websites like YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitch have also banned Trump from posting.
Obviously, there are the alt-right websites that don’t have all that many rules are regulations. But according to a recent report from Bloomberg, Jared Kushner has stopped the President from posting on Parler or Gab.
Jennifer Jacobs writes, “Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner stopped an effort to sign up the president on fringe social media platforms such as Gab and Parler after Twitter suspended his account last week, according to three people familiar with the matter.”

Yep, sounds about right.

The report continues, “Trump’s social media director, Dan Scavino, also objected, two of the people said. The two men thought the alternative social media sites, which have catered to political conservatives by promising fewer restraints on speech, weren’t suitable for the U.S. president partly because they didn’t think they were well managed or could handle the traffic.”
