Senior Adviser to President Trump Jared Kushner has blocked his father-in-law’s attempts to join Gab following the president’s permanent suspension from Twitter, according to Bloomberg.
On January 13th, Bloomberg reported that Kushner “stopped an effort to sign up the president on fringe social media platforms such as Gab and Parler after Twitter suspended his account last week, according to three people familiar with the matter.”
The sources “asked not to be identified because the conversations were private. CNN reported earlier that Kushner had stopped the migration of Trump’s social media accounts to new services,” the article also adds.
Following the story, Gab’s Twitter account repeatedly insisted that the reports were valid:
Gab has seen usership skyrocket following big tech’s crackdown on conservatives, as the platform “champions free speech, individual liberty and the free flow of information online.”
