Trump shared his first post since leaving the Oval Office. His account on Gab was active these days, and it came like a ray of hope for his supporters.

The post featured a copy of the letter Trump’s legal team wrote to House of Representatives’ lead impeachment manager Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.).

Here comes the best part. In his letter, the former President rejected Raskin’s attempt to get him to testify in the trial. Former Trump campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis joined Gab, too. Some of his advisers use the website on a daily basis.

The former President hasn’t posted anything since Jan.8. Well, he addressed his supporters twice that day. Trump provided a notice that he wouldn’t show up for Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20. The Trump family left Washington on Inauguration Day. They were gone by the time Joe Biden was sworn into office.

Trump cannot use Twitter anymore. The platform banned him after the Capitol riots. Similar to other social media websites, Twitter banned Trump for “glorifying violence.” The former President accused Twitter of going “further and further in banning free speech.” He also believes that Twitter works with Dems and the Radical Left. This was their way of shutting him down. But, he’s back.

Facebook banned the former President, and the Oversight Board is reviewing the decision. Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitch did the same.

Trump joined Gab in August 2016. Over 1.3 million people follow him on Gab. This is actually good news because Gab has its own servers after dealing with a de-platforming effort in the past. Parler is an emerging competitor to Twitter. Democrats didn’t like this, and the platform was removed from Amazon.

“Most technology startups have the luxury of using third-party cloud hosting providers like Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, and others. Gab does not have this luxury,” CEO Andrew Torba wrote in a 2020 blog post. “Over the past four years we have been banned from multiple cloud hosting providers and were told that if we didn’t like it we should ‘build our own.’ So, that’s exactly what we did.”

Gab is described as “The Free Speech Social Network” with a mission “to defend, protect, and preserve free speech online for all people.” As if this isn’t enough, “political speech that is protected by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution will be allowed on the platform.”
