Trump Media and Technology Group is trying to tamp down its feud with Google over the latter’s refusal to approve its Truth Social app in its current form barely two months before midterm elections.
After TMTG CEO Devin Nunes told “Just the News Not Noise” that he didn’t know “what’s taking so long” for Google to approve the former president’s app, Google said it told TMTG Aug. 19 that the submitted app committed “several violations of standard policies,” including insufficient moderation of user-generated content.
Former President Donald Trump on Sunday slammed conservatives who do not align with the MAGA movement, including former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan and The Dispatch cofounder Jonah Goldberg, as “shortsighted ‘losers'” who “have no idea what the MAGA movement is.”

That’s the lesson official Washington, D.C. should now be learning from former President Donald Trump’s foray into running a social media company, TruthSocial.com, which is currently running a successful public beta that Apple customers can download in the App Store.
Truth Social has completed a migration to a massive cloud computing infrastructure run by the video giant Rumble, clearing the way for the social platform started by former President Donald Trump to onboard millions of users quickly, officials told Just the News.
The partnership between two of the nation’s emerging free speech platforms — completed this week — means Truth Social will be ending its beta testing and controlled account creation and moving quickly to erase a backlog of consumers who have been waiting a few weeks to join the platform.
Radio host and TV commentator Dan Bongino built an army-sized following over the years on Twitter, with 2.4 million fans. In a few short weeks, he’s attracted about a tenth of the same following on President Trump’s nascent Truth Social platform.
But with millions fewer users and hundreds of thousands fewer followers, Bongino’s Truth Social account — like those of scores of other conservative stars — is creating substantially more engagement on posts than his long-time audience on Twitter.
The enthusiasm to join former President Trump’s new new social media platform – Truth Social – on its official launch day appears to have overwhelmed the site.
The site went live Sunday night ahead of its official President’s Day launch. However, potential users in roughly the past 24 hours have reported problem getting on the platform.
“Due to massive demand, we have placed you on our waitlist,” read the message received by several users, according to Reuters.
Other users reported having trouble registering for an account amid the early scramble to join.
Conservatives took critics to heart when they said, “build your own platforms,” in the wake of digital censorship claims.
Twitter competitors like Gab, Parler and now GETTR offer a “safe space” for those frustrated by the former’s inconsistent rules. The video platform Rumble, active since 2013 but experiencing a massive boost over the past year, is a haven for voices like conservative talker Dan Bongino recently silenced by Google-owned YouTube. And GiveSendGo.com lets clients denied access to GoFundMe crowdfund without compromising their values.
