Trump’s Social Media Site Flopped, Now He Wants Supporters to Pay to See His Videos
Donald Trump released his social media site this week. The project was widely panned and seen as more than a blog than a social site.
The former president has been desperate to get word out to his supporters since being banned by Twitter. He has also never been shy about asking those who support him for money. Trumps went as far as fooling followers into donating thousands of extra dollars to his campaign.
So it’s no surprise that his next idea has a subscription attached to it. According to the Washington Post, Trump is planning on creating a pay for media site.
Josh Dawsey and Ashley Parker write:
“Trump has begun discussing creation of a Trump media group, which would post his videos and statements and potentially offer subscriptions for premium content, people familiar with the conversations say. His team has held meetings with potential social media start-ups, one of these people said, adding that any social media effort could be separate from a Trump media group.”

The former president is also trying to raise funds by doing something that he does almost every day; playing golf. Trump recently announced a fundraiser where people who donate big bucks have the opportunity to play with him and South Carolina senator Lindsey Graham.
