Trump’s New Social Media Platform to Launch on Presidents’ Day
Former President Trump’s new social media platform, TRUTH Social, is set to launch on Presidents’ Day.
Ever since the 45th president was banned from Twitter and Facebook, many of his supporters and critics have been waiting to see where he would go.
“We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favorite American President has been silenced. This is unacceptable,” Trump said in a statement. “I am excited to send out my first TRUTH on TRUTH Social very soon.”
Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG) is launching the new app on Feb. 21, where users can share their “unique opinion by posting a TRUTH, Re-TRUTH, photo, news story or video link to communicate with your friends, customers, and the world.”
The listing adds: “Stay informed about breaking news while staying directly connected with the people who influence you – don’t be shocked if they take your TRUTH viral!”
Former Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) announced his early departure from Congress to lead the new social media company.
“The time has come to reopen the Internet and allow for the free flow of ideas and expression without censorship,” Nunes said at the time. “The United States of America made the dream of the Internet a reality and it will be an American company that restores the dream. I’m humbled and honored President Trump has asked me to lead the mission and the world class team that will deliver on this promise.”
