Donald Trump is reportedly so frustrated after being banned from Twitter that he has resorted to writing insults for other people to use.
The former US President was sensationally banned from the social media platform after the attempted insurrection at the US Capitol in Washington DC last month.
He had previously used the social media site to fire off angry or factually inaccurate tweets (sometimes both) at public figures who displeased him.
He had 88.7m followers before he was shut out of the platform, a move that critics say should have happened a long time ago. It meant there was an extraordinary few days when Trump could not tweet but still had access to the nuclear codes.
Now, the businessman-turned-politician has reportedly taken to suggesting put-downs for others to use or post to their own social media accounts.
The Daily Beast reports that through conversations in recent days Trump has ‘grumbled’ about US Representative Liz Cheney who he is said to want to ‘personally trash’ despite not having the same platform he once did.
Citing an unnamed source the paper claims that Trump has written out ‘insults and observations’ with several of them about Liz Cheney.
But with no ability to tweet them himself he reportedly writes them down for others instead.
Trump was booted off the social media network following the deadly attempted insurrection at the Capitol last month.
Pro-Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol in an attempt to stop the certification of Joe Biden as Trump’s presidential successor.
During the violence and rioting Trump used Twitter to broadcast a video where he told the mob to ‘go home’ but also said ‘we love you.’
Five people died in the failed January 6 siege, as his fanatics attempted to overthrow results of the Presidential election.
Trump, who left office on January 20, now faces a trial in the Senate for inciting violence in Washington DC.
The Republican has as a result become the first US President in history to be impeached twice, and could be banned from standing for office ever again.
