Trump announces the launch of his own media company and a social network

The American president Donald Trump announced this Wednesday the launch of his own media company, with plans for the time being to open a social network and a subscription video service.

The company will be called Trump Media Technology Group (TMTG) and according to a statement from the exmander, its mission is to "create a rival to the progressive media consortium and combat Silicon Valley's 'Big Tech' companies."

Trump accuses these companies from "having used their power unilaterally to silence opposition voices in the United States."

The first product of the new Trump company that will see the light will be its social network, called "Social Truth" ("Social Truth").

The application already appears in the Apple App Store, although it will not indicate it will not be available until February 2022.

In your statement, however, Trump said that the application will start operating in a test version as of November.

In addition to the social network, the exmander, who continues controlling the Republican Party and flirting with the idea of returning to the presidential elections in 2024, announced the future release of a subscription video platform. This platform will be called TMTG + and will include "entertainment programming, news, podcast and more".

Since he had to abandon power last January, the idea of creating a media company of his own has survived the closest environment to Trump with the aim of communicating directly with his followers, especially after large social networks such as Twitter, Facebook or YouTube suspending their accounts after assault on the Capitol.
