Washington, Oct 20 (EFE).- Former United States President Donald Trump announced Wednesday the launch of his own media company, with plans to create a social network and a subscription video service.
The company will be called Trump Media Technology Group and according to a statement from the ex-president its mission is to “create a rival to the progressive media consortium and fight the ‘Big Tech’ companies of Silicon Valley”.
Trump accuses these companies of “having used their power unilaterally to silence opposition voices in the United States”.
The first product of Trump’s new company will be his social network, called “TRUTH Social”.
The application is already in the Apple App Store, although it will allegedly be unavailable until February 2022.
In his statement, however, Trump said the application will start working in a test version from November.
In addition to the social network, the former president, who continues to control the Republican Party and has floated the idea of ??running again in the 2024 presidential elections, announced the future launch of a subscription video platform.
This platform will be called TMTG+ and will include “entertainment programming, news, podcasts and more”.
Since he had to leave power in January, he has worked on the idea of ??creating his own media company to communicate directly with his followers, especially after major social networks such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube suspended his accounts. This came as they deemed his posts instigated the assault on the US Capitol. EFE
