A new social media platform was launched, and apparently Trump isn’t interested.
Bloomberg reports that 45th President Donald Trump will not join GETTR, the new social media platform created by his former spokesman, Jason Miller, despite media publications suggesting the social network was created by “Team Trump”.National File
It was created by former members of his team, and claims to be in favor of free speech.
Trump, however, has other ideas.
A senior Bloomberg reporter explains “Trump isn’t joining Jason Miller’s new social media platform,” and President Trump will not “have any financial stake or participation” in GETTR. “Apparently the ex president still has plans for a separate platform. Unclear what exactly,” she noted. GETTR was officially launched earlier today amid expectations that President Trump would himself be launching a new platform following his bans from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and virtually every big tech platform.National File
In fact, Trump was asked directly about this by YouTube commentator Dave Rubin.
Here’s what he said.
An interesting side note here is that both Gab and Telegram have reserve accounts for President Trump, which post all of his statements.
But internal divisions within Trump’s inner circle are said to have prevented him from joining.
Some, like Gab CEO Andrew Torba, claim Jared Kushner was responsible for blocking Trump from the platform.
So for now the only certainty is that Trump himself will be creating a platform.
We look forward to checking it out when it goes live.
