If President Trump makes his own platform he’ll break social media’s stranglehold

SiliTrump Valley. Trumpbook. TrumpTube. Trumpinterest. Trumpagram. Heck, create a new search engine, free of manipulation: Troogle. Name me one Trump supporter you know who wouldn’t use the full suite of the Trump Valley platform; you can’t. (This is the part where Never Trumpers such as Ben Shapiro and Sen. Ben Sasse lament the echo chamber.)

I have a two-pronged theory as to why we’ve not seen a Trump-branded mode of online communication: first, the president and family don’t know how to make the many moving parts synchronize (I do, but I won’t yet reveal. As the Joker said in “The Dark Knight,” if you’re good at something, never do it for free). Second, the Trumps don’t know how to monetize it.

Like everything else they touch, Democrats have destroyed speech on the internet, irrespective of its asininity. So, Mr. President, please consider what I’m saying. It all sounds impossibly daunting, but so was your electoral win—-a win that was America’s political black swan event. At the 2016 Republican National Convention, Ivanka Trump boldly stated her father’s election could make the impossible possible.
