President Trump touted the power of Truth Social during an exclusive interview with RSBN’s Brian Glenn this week, slamming the mainstream media for being “fake” and pointing out the highlights of his free speech platform.
“Truth Social’s been amazing,” Trump said. “…that whole world, I call it the world of…‘semi make-believe,’ because who would think that there’s value in…what’s been created. But it’s been fake media. Truth Social’s been real media – it’s been real.”
He added, “I think Truth has been, really, a very big development. It’s doing tremendously well.”
President Trump merged Trump Media & Technology Group and Digital World Acquisition Corp. in 2021 with the intention of creating a rival social media platform to stand up against the tyranny Big Tech censorship, via RSBN.
Truth Social officially launched in February 2022, providing a free speech alternative to the suppression and suspension tactics of sites like Facebook and Twitter. It has also become a platform where President Trump has been able to communicate directly with the American people without the possibility of suspension.
Trump added that Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram had recently moved to reinstate his accounts after his suspension from those platforms in 2021. “…They want me, but you know, it’s not exciting like it used to be because there’s no dialogue, there’s no people fighting a little bit – mentally fighting.”
He noted that Truth Social users would not be unfairly “red-flagged” for their statements on the free speech site.
In January, Trump acknowledged the victories of his accounts being reinstated to Big Tech sites, shouting out Truth Social’s “outstanding” growth amid nearly two difficult years of social media blackout.
“Such a thing should never again happen to a sitting President, or anybody else who is not deserving of retribution!” he wrote. “THANK YOU TO TRUTH SOCIAL FOR DOING SUCH AN INCREDIBLE JOB. YOUR GROWTH IS OUTSTANDING, AND FUTURE UNLIMITED!!!”
