Donald Trump wreaked havoc on his own social media platform this week after he was accused of ‘blocking’ his ‘most loyal’ supporter on Truth Social.
Social media user Lara8 said she was “devastated” after the former president “blocked” her on Thursday, The Daily Beast first reported.
She wrote on another pro-Trum platform, Gettr, “I have no idea, but President Trump blocked me today on Truth Social.”
“Any of you who know me know that I am a very loyal supporter of President Trump and a fighter for #FreeSpeech,” she continued. “I hope it was a bug or an error”.
Lara8 – who eventually deleted her Truth Social account – then shared half a dozen comments from other Trump supporters on Gettr who expressed their disbelief, which were seen by The Independent.
“Surely this must be a mistake,” wrote Gettr user PatriotGrandma1. “You have always been a big supporter of our president and Melanie. I’m sorry this happened to you, my friend, but I’m sure it will be rectified. I love you”
Another said, “Wow! It does not make sense “.
Explaining why she might have been “blocked” by Mr. Trump on Truth Social, Lara8 wrote in another post on Gettr that she might have done “too much tagging but never with bad intent.”
On Friday morning, she told her 59,000 Gettr followers that she had decided to delete her Truth Social account and was taking a “break” from social media.
“To anyone wondering if I deleted my account, not Truth Social. Because I don’t see any sense in having an account where I can no longer see President Trump’s truth in real time,” he wrote. she explains.
“I am his staunchest supporter and I fight for the truth and always stand up to the lies of the fake media.”
According to the Daily Beast, Gettr CEO Jason Miller was among those who responded to Lara8’s posts on Truth Social and said, “President Trump has NOT blocked you, and he very much appreciates your support – I appreciate it. have first-hand confirmation.”
Mr Trump recently posted on the ‘pro-free speech’ network run by former GOP congressman Devin Nunes after it launched earlier this year – and nearly 12 months after the former president was banned from Twitter.
The Independent approached Mr. Trump’s office for comment.
