Trump Joined Rumble after facing a ban from a slew of platforms.
Trump has joined video platform Rumble, the same day he will take the stage at a campaign-style rally in Ohio, his first such event since the January 6 attack on the US Capitol.
Donald Trump lost his social media megaphone earlier this year when many platforms blocked him after his supporters stormed the US Capitol.
Trump was permanently banned from Twitter and remains suspended by FB until at least 2023 and by YouTube until the company determines the risk of violence have decreased.
Trump spokeswoman Liz Harrington said that joining Rumble was in addition to the former president's plan to start his own platform, rather than replace this plan. Earlier this month, Trump shut down his recently-launched blog and has not given details on the proposed platform.
Rumble CEO Chris Pavlovski confirmed Donald Trump's verified account had been set up on the site but declined to comment further. Trump advisor Dan Scavino tweeted that Trump's Ohio rally would be live-streamed on the platform.
Rumble, launched in 2013 by Canadian tech entrepreneur Pavlovski as an alternative YouTube.
