Trump Launches Censorship-Free Social Media: “Big Tech’s Days Are Numbered”

Fact checked
Trump launches 'TRUTH' social app

President Trump has unveiled a new ‘censorship free’ social media platform which he says will end the tyranny of Big Tech firms such as Facebook and Twitter.

The former commander in chief announced the free speech platform alongside a new media venture – the Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG) – on Wednesday, saying his TRUTH Social app will be ready early next year and will serve as a “rival to the liberal media consortium” based in Silicon Valley.

“I created TRUTH Social and TMTG to stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech. 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, adding that the censorship-free social media site 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. Everyone asks me why doesn’t someone stand up to Big Tech? Well, we will be soon!” reports: While TRUTH Social is currently available for pre-order only, TMTG said it would begin beta testing for select users next month, with a full nationwide roll-out planned for the first quarter of 2022. The company also hinted at plans to create an on-demand subscription video service known as TMTG+, which it said will “feature ‘non-woke’ entertainment programming, news, podcasts and more.”

Trump’s announcement was apparently not lost on some of the biggest names in the social media world, with Twitter’s Jack Dorsey weighing in to note that the username @jack had already been taken, pointing to promo photos for the new app which take some not-so-subtle swipes at the Twitter chief.

Some of the promotional material went even further, outwardly mocking Twitter for its history of scrubbing content or banning users under questionable pretexts. A marketing image showed a hypothetical chat between users named ‘@jack’ and ‘@jane’ – the latter presumably a stand-in for Dorsey – with ‘jack’ demanding TRUTH Social’s moderation team “take down” an unspecified account. ‘Jane’ responds: “Are you sure you want to do that? I mean it’s a pretty big deal censoring that content. Kinda an overreach.. right?”

Dorsey, seemingly the target of the ad, took the criticism in stride, tweeting out the image with a simple caption: “Jane seems cool.”

The Twitter chief himself was forced to acknowledge his platform may have crossed a line by blocking a New York Post investigation last year that revealed the potentially corrupt business dealings of then-Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son, Hunter – including barring users from sharing the story in direct messages. Dorsey later said the way the issue was handled was “unacceptable,” eventually allowing the Post’s story back on his platform. (As it turned out, banning the article only amplified its reach online, having precisely the opposite of the intended effect.)

Earlier this month, lawyers for the ex-president filed a lawsuit asking a federal judge in Florida to force Twitter to reinstate his account, arguing that the social media giant was “coerced” by congressional Democrats to permanently ban Trump from the platform over the January 6 riot. In a separate lawsuit, the former president also asked the court to restore his Facebook account, arguing that Facebook was “threatening irreparable damage to the Republican Party’s prospects in the 2022 and 2024 elections.”

The TRUTH Social project is not Trump’s first foray into the social media world. In May, he launched a platform resembling Twitter visually – called ‘From the Desk of Donald Trump’ – though it was effectively just a personal blog which was supposed to allow users to re-post Trump’s musings onto other mainstream platforms (many of which continue to ban Trump himself). Just a few months later, however, the project was shut down, failing to garner much attention despite Trump’s previous enormous following on Twitter. 

Another project named ‘Gettr’ was also launched last July by Jason Miller, a former Trump aide and spokesman, and though the MAGA-themed platform continues to operate, the ex-president has appeared to distance himself from the project. Ahead of its launch last summer, Bloomberg reported that Trump had no plans to join Gettr and had no financial stake in the venture, noting that he still intended to create his own platform. 


  1. He isn’t an island. He’s subject to the riule of law He needs to get a conglomerate of powerful people to join him and actively alter the Law and overturn existing authorities in order to overcome the tyrrany. He can’t do that by setting up a platform that can be shut down for being illegal.

  2. I’ve never engaged in social media and still won’t. I don’t feel the need to broadcast to the world everytime I have a bowel movement.

  3. know some of you won’t like me after I say this but it’s the truth, so, so be it.
    Trump is a generational elitist. He’s not your savior & there is NOWAY this isn’t going to be used against you. Yet another trap.
    The right/left paradigm was designed to keep you divided and fighting your neighbors. They work for the same master. They understand human psychology. They know to make moves to make them look like they’re on your side. Like Lenin said, “the best way to handle opposition is to lead it ourselves”. I’m talking about people like russel brand, joe rogan, David Icke. Never trust anyone that’s bern financially or blood related to these globalist endeavors. Stick with real people like the last American vagabond , hugo talks, stop the crime. Net etc. Research natural law. Because these man written laws all contradict it. Otherwise they’d be redundant. Stop believing anyone has authority over you. Stop following rules that potentially harm you.

  4. This platform will not be “uncensored.” The President cannot be associated with some of what will be said on a completely uncensored site.

  5. “think local” Oh piss off is the response to that entrapment. Shove it digs breath Look moses forced Pharaoh to set his people free, Pharaoh double crossing pos sent the troops after them Right? Well when a whole nation od slaves get away that’s a MASSIVE Loss of capital and resources. A major blow to the empire, but when the army sent after them get “swallowed up” by the red sea then that’s a catastrophic blow. Course swallowed up is most likely pc for deserted grab the chance to escape and never came back either. But because Alexander rhe great burned the Alexander Library to the ground all the history was lost and so Rome after they defeated Egyptian Cleo the 7th, got to rewrite it all. Their way. Course Pharaoh never forgives and blames the Jews for Egyors failure and will hate with a vengeance. Its all from there. But censorship tells lies and Trump won’t be allowed to tell the truth and they will hold him responsible and liable andaje him pay, one way or another .
