Well, this should be…fun?? Is this part of gearing up for a run in 2024? It would make sense. Without Twitter and Facebook, he’s going to need a way to reach his supporters bigly:
Former U.S. President Donald Trump will launch his own social media app, TRUTH Social, that he said would “stand up to Big Tech” companies such as Twitter and Facebook that have barred him from their platforms.
TRUTH Social will be created through a new company formed by a merger of the Trump Media and Technology Group and a special acquisition company (SPAC), according to a press release distributed by both organizations.
“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 written statement included in the release.
“I am excited to send out my first TRUTH on TRUTH Social very soon. TMTG was founded with a mission to give a voice to all. I’m excited to soon begin sharing my thoughts on TRUTH Social and to fight back against Big Tech,” he said.
Clearly, the actual, unvarnished “TRUTH” continues to mean nothing to the former president:
The insurrection took place on November 3, Election Day. January 6 was the Protest!
