Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner intervened when other officials tried restoring the President’s social media presence
President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, “intervened” to stop the President from joining the free speech Twitter alternative Gab after he was banned from every major social media platform, according to a report from CNN.
Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner intervened when other officials tried restoring the President’s social media presence on sites that are often havens for extremists, such as Gab, following an unprecedented ban from several major platforms.
According to an outside adviser and an administration official, Kushner and deputy chief of staff Dan Scavino blocked efforts by other aides, including personnel chief Johnny McEntee, to get the President on fringe social media platforms after he was suspended in some fashion from almost every major one, including Twitter, Facebook and, now, YouTube.
Those officials had initially attempted to use other Twitter accounts, including those run by campaign officials, to tweet in Trump’s name.
The other accounts Trump got on were swiftly banned — in a humiliating fashion.
Gab shared a few tweets on Saturday which people took as an indicator Trump was going to join the site.
