Trump’s new social media platform, which he had named “Truth Social,” is set to launch in Spring of 2022.
“For me, this endeavor is about much more than politics. This is about saving our country,” Trump said.
“I created TRUTH Social and TMTG [Trump Media & Technology Group] to stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech,” he added.
“Nowhere is censorship more dangerous and brazen than on social media, the public square of our times,” the former president continued. “We have seen renowned medical doctors being banned from platforms for contradicting ‘health authorities’ or questioning the political narrative of the moment.”
“And as everyone knows, we’ve seen a sitting president of the United States effectively silenced by a small oligarchy of tech titans and ‘mainstream’ media corporations,” he added.
“The more I looked into this problem, the more I realized that to restore free speech, a major new platform would have to enter the market, with an ironclad commitment to protecting vigorous debate from all sides,” Trump said.
“So with the same ‘can-do’ spirit that has always allowed Americans to persevere, that is exactly what I am doing,” he continued.
“Unlike with the Big Tech platforms, there will be no shadow-banning, throttling, demonetizing, or messing with algorithms for political manipulation. We will not be treating users like lab rats for social experiments, or labeling alternative views as ‘disinformation,’” Trump explained.
“We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favorite American President has been silenced,” he added.
“This is unacceptable,” Trump concluded. “I am excited to send out my first TRUTH on TRUTH Social very soon.”
