Donald Trump's Social Media Platform Will 'Suck' Proud Boys Say in Message Shared by Gab

Far-right social media account TheWesternChauvinist, which is linked to the Proud Boys hate group, has said Donald Trump's planned social media network "is going to suck," and competing network Gab has shared the message.

Jason Miller, an adviser and spokesperson for Trump, told Fox News on Sunday the former Republican president would be making a social media return by creating a platform of his own.

Miller told reporter Howard Kurtz: "Everyone wants him and he's going to bring millions and millions—tens of millions—to this platform."

But the planned account has been criticized by the Proud Boys-affiliated group TheWesternChauvinist via its Telegram messaging service profile, which said Trump should instead choose to join social media network Gab which far-right supporters have embraced.

2. Trump's platform will have limited reach because users will have to register.

Trump will require lots of information from his base of "true patriots" so he can monetize their gullibility.

I wouldn't be surprised if he required subscription fees, a la Glenn Beck and other RW cranks.

Every day, Trump will highlight a "crisis" that can only be addressed by user's donations.

And he will sell user's information to any party interested in fleecing some rubes.

3. Gab, which far-right supporters have embraced.

“...instead choose to join social media network Gab which far-right supporters have embraced.”

“Far right” as in “far, far, FAR-REICH!”

6. This is my fear: Trump is washed up, or will be soon

His mystique is crumbling rapidly.

But the fascist network remains, and they're still fired up. The next figurehead will be someone younger, smarter, and less clownish. This was a practice round. The training wheels will be off.
