Following the 2021 insurrection, Donald Trump was banned from most forms of social media. Most gutting to the former President was his ban from Twitter. Trump was an early user of the site and it was clearly his favorite way to communicate with his supporters.Since he’s been off Twitter, Trump has been desperate to replace the site with a Conservative version. The recent attempts have been humiliating failures. But Team Maga was pinning much of its hopes on Truth Social. Devin Nunes quit his job as a CEO to oversee the site and $1 billion was raised from investors. Much like the former attempts, though, the new site is not going well. And according to a report from The Daily Beast, Trump is not happy about that.
Adam Rawnsley and Asawin Suebsaeng write:
“Even for a soft launch, Truth Social’s launch has been particularly soft. And after a botched rollout where most prospective users were simply added to a wait list, Trump has been grumbling about the app behind the scenes, according to two sources familiar with the matter, even as he’s tried to put on a brave face publicly.”
The report continues, “He’s repeatedly groused about the negative press and the less-than-stellar optics of the rollout, these sources said. And he’s demanded to know why more people aren’t using it—why the app isn’t swiftly dominating the competition.”
