Former President Donald Trump’s team has launched a new social media platform, billing it as an alternative to Big Tech sites.
Named GETTR, the app advertises its mission statement as “fighting cancel culture, promoting common sense, defending free speech, challenging social media monopolies, and creating a true marketplace of ideas,” Politico reported Thursday.
Trump’s former spokesman, Jason Miller, is leading the platform, described as similar to Twitter, Politico reported.
Miller, a spokesman for Trump’s 2020 campaign, hinted in March that Trump would re-enter the social media space with a new platform of his own that would “completely redefine the game.”
Trump’s involvement with the project is unclear as to whether or not he will set up an account on GETTR and use it, Politico reported — but it may signal an attempt to have the former president get back onto social media.
