Nunes Breaths New Hope For Patriots, Gives New Platform Release Date
''We have so many people who don't want to see us be successful, whether that be the big tech companies, the fake news media complex that's out there, or even foreign governments and other bad actors,'' Nunes said on ''Greg Kelly Reports.''
''It's very difficult. We cannot use any of the big tech companies. We've seen what has happened to other small startup companies. And when Amazon decides they don't like them, they cut them off.
''So we're having to build this from scratch. We're developing great partners like Rumble, for example, which is a YouTube alternative. They've been helping us out a lot, so we're going to continue to find people that will not cancel us, that want to see the internet back open again for everyone, and obviously, we're hoping to work with Newsmax.''
Nunes, who referred to a visit to Newsmax's corporate headquarters in Boca Raton, Florida, last week, contradicted reports in business and tech media that TruthSocial was expected to launch Feb. 21.
''If anybody wants to sign up, they can go to TruthSocial.com and actually sign up now,'' he said. ''What we're doing now is we are in beta testing, we're expanding that beta test. And we fully expect to launch by the end of March.
Meta, the parent company of Facebook, announced Thursday that the site lost about 1 million daily active users between Q3 and Q4 of 2021. It was the first time the company reported a decline in user numbers.
"This means people are tired of Fake News and abuse and especially tired of their political shenanigans," Trump said in a Friday statement shared by his spokeswoman Liz Harington.
"It could also be that people are waiting for TRUTH — the highly sophisticated platform that we look forward to opening in the not too distant future. Time to straighten out what is happening in our Country!"
