Trump Team Launches New Media Platform

Former President Trump and his team quietly launched a new social media site, GETTR on Thursday. The platform is meant to rival Twitter and is being led by former Trump spokesman Jason Miller.

Politico reports:

The platform, called GETTR, advertised its mission statement as “fighting cancel culture, promoting common sense, defending free speech, challenging social media monopolies, and creating a true marketplace of ideas.”

Trump’s involvement with the project is unclear as is whether or not he will set up an account on GETTR and use it, though his proximity to Miller suggests that this may be the latest attempt to get him back in the churn of social media

The former president has been looking for alternative ways to engage with his base online after having been booted off Twitter and suspended from Facebook after encouraging the Capitol rioters on January 6. And his prior effort to engage online—through the launch of a professional blog—ended quickly amid widespread ridicule and poor readership.

GETTR is one of the highest-profile projects in a larger ecosystem of pro-MAGA tech and social media platforms that have blossomed on the right, largely fueled by a sense that Big Tech is attempting to silence conservative and pro-Trump ideology from being disseminated online. In recent months, it was widely reported that the Trump team was searching for a platform on which to re-establish his online presence, either by buying a company outright and rebranding it as his exclusive platform, or becoming a featured draw.

Don’t know if serving as President qualifies as a “blessing” from Trump’s point of view. It’s certainly a blessing from ours.

history repeats itself, bumbling biden is abandoning another country after helping to put together a “peace accord”. Last one I recall was South Vietnam, biden would not provide funding for materials to defend the country which lead to its downfall and now the Afghans who assisted US efforts have been left behind. More shock and awe by liberal appeasers….might want to take a closer look at the cally politicians being so chummy with the Chicoms

No they’re not supporting Trump, they are trying to stop him from being President again because he was demanding even free trade and the CCP was not being able to control everything, including America!!!!!!!! Their own people are still dying from Covid and they don’t want the rest of the world’s economy to surpass them. They are as corrupt and evil as the day is long.

President Trump never encouraged anyone to riot, he said to stand up and be heard! The Left is intent on silencing the free speech of Americans which is a constitutional right.

I am with you Randall….President Trump did not encourage anyone of his supporters to riot on the Capitol…he told them to go peacefully! Trump supporters do not riot, loot, burn down businesses, shoot policemen or want to defund the police…that is what the liberals did all summer long…where is that outrage????

Pelosi was the person that told the Capitol police they did not need more police. She set the whole thing up I am sure of it. She should be arrested for the riot and the murder of one lady that was there.

President Trump. We want to help you fulfill the only promise you made in 2016 that was not done. Lets put Americas coal miners back to work. America again needs to become Energy Wise. We need to use our coal for producing America’s electricity.
We can have these coal fired power plants operating and emitting less CO2 into the atmosphere than what a natural gas power plant emits.
Lets get Everybody back to work!!!

What a piece of crappo this “POLITICLO” is. “… and suspended from Facebook AFTER ENCOURAGING THE CAPITOL RIOTERS ON JANUARY 6.” That is a damned LIE and these baying JACKAZZES know it. Trump did NO such thing. Nothing like that was proven. Trump should sue the brainless jerks for defamation of character.

If TTN makes one more comment like “…. after encouraging the Capitol rioters on Jan. 6th,” I will delete their app. They’ve said some loony liberal comments in their articles lately.
