Trump Announces Launch Of His Own Social Media Platform

trumpOn Wednesday, former President Trump officially announced the release of his own social media platform. The new platform will be called “TRUTH Social” and is set to go online at some point in early 2022. To quote Trump, “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.”

The operations of TRUTH Social will be overseen by the newly-formed Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG), which Trump is the chairman of. In addition to TRUTH Social, TMTG plans to launch a subscription service titled TMTG+. TMTG+ will feature content made by conservative contributors, such as podcasts, news shows, and entertainment shows. Prior to any of its products or services being launched, TMTG already has an initial valuation of over $1 billion. 

According to a recent press release, “Trump Media & Technology Group’s mission is to create a rival to the liberal media consortium and fight back against the ‘Big Tech’ companies of Silicon Valley, which have used their unilateral power to silence opposing voices in America.” TRUTH Social is currently available for pre-order in the Apple App Store and is expected to be available for pre-order in the Google Play Store in the coming days. 

Trump’s move comes after he was banned by Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube following the events that occurred at the Capitol on January 6th. Trump had a combined 150 million followers on the four platforms. Trump’s decision to launch his own social media platform also indicates that he will run for President in 2024 as he continues to remain the top voice for American conservatives. Further signaling that he will run in 2024, Trump held two large rallies in the crucial battleground states of Iowa and Georgia over the last month, where he criticized Joe Biden and discussed critical topics such as the economy and election integrity. Trump also surpassed Biden’s approval rating in a recent Quinnipiac poll, clearly showing that he would be a viable candidate if he chooses to extend his political career.

Since at least 68 percent of Republicans report using social media, it is likely that these individuals will join TRUTH Social. Further evidence that conservatives will use Trump’s TRUTH Social can be found in a recent poll that shows 54 percent of Republican voters would definitely “use a social media platform that was backed by former President Donald Trump.”

Considering the amount of energy that Trump has put into the development of the platform and the number of interactions each of Trump’s statements creates, it should be safe to assume that TRUTH Social will succeed in its effort to rival liberal social media companies such as Facebook and Twitter. 

Leftist social media organizations constantly suppress and censor conservative opinions, making it extremely difficult for conservatives to prosper on their platforms. Trump’s TRUTH Social seems to be a tremendous solution to this significant issue.

I can’t wait.

I am very excited for this!! I have tried to say things about how I feel on other Social media but my grandchildren always “cancel” me when I am only speaking my mind! I grew up with certain ideas about certain classes of people, and I am not ashamed to hold to those ideas as a red-blooded 81-year old American. “Change” isn’t always good — it’s usually not! We all know what I am talking about and we have all been yelled at for simply speaking plainly in the way we were taught. I hope this new place that Mr. Trump is building will let us speak our mind, but I am worried about the “woke” people finding it, so I hope there is an easy way of banning anyone who is going on there trying to spread liberal nonsense. Hopefully there are ways to screen out certain kinds of people (I’m not going to get specific because I don’t want to take more guff from my granddaughter!)

When this happens there will be what a lot of religious people call the great awakening. Can’t wait. I’m going to be right there in the middle of it all. May God richly bless the people that are putting it together and may God Bless America again.

With Trump as President again; and Allen West as future TX Governor, Ron DeSantis as FL Governor, and Kristi Noem as SD Governor, among others; Freedom and Liberty will be riding the conservative wave back to the top! If we can somehow get Larry Elder elected as CA governor next year, we will be riding high, indeed!

Competition is what makes the real world work. This will be fun to participate in. We need to take this country back from the trash who would twist it and besmirch nour ,constitution and who lie to us seemingly with impunity.

It is all about competition, as of now we only have the liberal media network to discuss and proclaim our conservative message, now with President Trumps platform we can really say what we want and will not be silenced. Because of this the liberal media platforms will crash and burn. Liberals will have a hard time expressing their nonsense when compared to the commonsense conservative ideas put forth by millions of Trump’s America First Followers and anyone else with a brain. We will finally have a place to express our ideas and say it the way we want!!! MZ

Wow, can’t wait! My best to President Trump and this platform. Now we will watch the socialist liberals try to discredit and destroy this. It will be launched just in time for the ’22 election. It will be so worth it to watch the liberals squirm and cry “foul ball”!

I for one will be glad when its fully operational, people need to be able to express their views without fear of censorship as long as they don’t make stupid threats of violence, speak as harshly as you want, but leave the threats to the left.

I think he got the title wrong because a lot of what is going to be put on there is from the left. It should have been “Freedom Social”

The challenge is that partitioning citizens who all think alike is means there is less debate The willingness to express an argument and think about the response has been a source of learning and growth. We do not want to lose this, but in some ways we have already lost that. We are living in extremely dangerous times.

This is similar to the education debate : While establishing legitimate (non-government) schools, conservatives should try to fumigate the “public” ones. While having free-talk among ourselves, we should try to fumigate the globalist/Marxist outlets!

Somewhere along the way, some of us have missed the fact that we already have lost the ability to express an argument by the Social Media groups through their censoring practices and setting “Community Standards” that will get a person suspended from their platforms. We are forbidden to post true facts or opinions that differ from the narrative set by the socialists and globalists. I do hope that the new Trump network platform will police filthy language and return civility and moral values to social media.

It is about time we had a site to go to where conservatives can go to and express their thoughts without having to worry about being banned and having their freedom of speech violated. For those who do not think Trump should run again, think of how badly the country is doing right now! Wouldn’t you rather have a President that can get things done even if he is not politically correct and doesn’t stay silent when he is attacked? His tweets were a small price to pay for a President who can effectively run our nation.
