Former President Donald Trump and former first lady Melania Trump have launched a website for the couple’s personal offices.
The site — found at 45office.com — states it is “committed to preserving the magnificent legacy of the Trump Administration, while at the same time advancing the America First agenda.”
It may serve as a platform for the Trumps’ announcements. While the former first lady maintains social media accounts, the former president has been barred from most social media sites since early January.
The new site also welcomes people to “share your thoughts” via submission forms, noting the Trumps “enjoy hearing from the American people. Members of the public may also request a greeting for a special occasion.
The site shares the former president and first lady’s biographies and touts the Trump administration’s record in office.
“Through civic engagement and public activism, the Office of Donald J. Trump will strive to inform, educate, and inspire Americans from all walks of life as we seek to build a truly great American Future. Through this office, President Trump will remain a tireless champion for the hardworking men and women of our great country – and for their right to live in safety, dignity, prosperity, and peace,” the homepage reads.
The former president was banned from most online platforms after a violent pro-Trump mob ransacked the U.S. Capitol building in an attempt to overturn the election, greatly reducing the avenues he had used to control public discourse throughout his career and presidency.
While some companies like Facebook and Google are deliberating on whether to make such bans permanent, Twitter, Trump’s favorite social media platform, banned the former president permanently.
Since leaving office, Trump has sent out statements through an email subscriber list. Through the messages, he has criticized Republican and Democratic lawmakers, the Biden administration and commented on contemporary events.
Trump has reportedly found it difficult to get his message out through the press releases, which largely rely on traditional media and those with larger platforms on social media to get his message out.
On March 21, Trump spokesman Jason Miller told Fox News Business that Trump is in ongoing talks to found his own social media platform, though Miller provided few details about the venture.
