Donald Trump 'asking allies to tweet insults for him' following social media ban

DONALD TRUMP has reportedly been forced to ask friends and former colleagues of his to tweet insults on his behalf because he can no longer do it himself.

According to a report by The Daily Beast, Mr Trump has "written out insults and observations" to be posted on social media.

Last month, the president had his Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube accounts all suspended in light of the Capitol riot on January 6, due to his supposed part in inciting it.

However, since his forced social media blackout, Trump has apparently grown increasingly frustrated at the fact that he can't to interact with any of his political enemies anymore.

According to the report, he's particularly frustrated about Wyoming representative Liz Cheney - the third-highest ranking Republican in the House of Representatives, who was among 10 GOP congressmen and women who voted for Mr Trump's impeachment on January 13.

Trump has reportedly become fixated on taking down Cheney for her vote against him now that he's left the White House.

The report says: "But with no ability to tweet them himself, he has resorted to suggesting put-downs for others to use or post to their own Twitter."

On Friday, CNN reported that Mr Trump has been repeatedly questioning his Republican allies in the House to remove Rep Cheney from her position as the House Republican conference chair and run a primary candidate against her.

Meanwhile, Trump is set to face trial in the Senate at the end of the week, becoming the first American president to be impeached twice, and the first to be tried after his term in the Oval Office has ended.
