Banned from social networks Twitter, Facebook and YouTube for inciting an insurgency after his electoral defeat, former US President Donald Trump announces that he is creating his own social network, called "Truth Social".

The launch of this platform is scheduled for early next year.

Social networks no longer want his lies written at all hours of the day and night in capital letters.

Never mind, Donald Trump will create his own social network.

The former US president was banned from Twitter, Facebook and YouTube last January for inciting violence, after his supporters stormed the Capitol, following his electoral defeat.

The platforms have since been reluctant to consider allowing its return.

"I can't wait to post my first TRUTH"

Donald Trump therefore announces that he will launch his own social network in early 2022. It will be called "Truth Social", or the social network of truth.

A whole program for the president whose administration still had to invite the notion of "alternative facts" to justify his lies. 

This social network will make it possible, according to the former president, to "resist the tyranny of GAFAM", the giants of the web.

"Your favorite American president has been silenced, it's unacceptable. I can't wait to post my first TRUTH," he said in a statement, in his own style.

Donald Trump had already tried to launch his blog after being banned from social networks.

Without success.

He had finally closed it after a few months for lack of visitors.
