Donald Trump on Thursday announced his upcoming social media platform, which he vowed would allow free speech after he was banned from major websites following the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol insurrection carried out by his supporters.

But the rules for TruthSocial.com are already online and there's an ironic flaw built in. The website, "founded with a mission to give a voice to all," forbids anyone from criticizing the site or those behind it, presumably including the former president.

The terms of service include an agreement not to "disparage, tarnish, or otherwise harm, in our opinion, us and/or the Site," as Brad Heath of Reuters noted on Twitter.
