Donald Trump to Newsmax: Nunes to Help Us Restore Our 'Voice'

(Newsmax/"Spicer & Co."

By    |   Monday, 06 December 2021 07:23 PM EST

Singing the praises of Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., who announced he'll be leaving Congress to head up a new Trump media venture, former President Donald Trump on Newsmax called this "a very important day."

"Devin is a fantastic guy; I think that he will do an incredible job," Trump told Monday's "Spicer & Co.," hiring one of the key conservative voices against the Russia investigation.

Both Trump and Nunes have been at the forefront of seeking to hold Big Tech accountable for alleged censorship of conservatives and silence over stories like the Hunter Biden's laptop. Trump and others have suggested that through such postures, Big Tech is effectively meddling in U.S. elections as liberals have accused Russia of doing.

"If our side doesn't have a voice, eventually, you're not going to have [a free country]; you're going to end up with pure communism," Trump told co-hosts Sean Spicer and Lyndsay Keith in an exclusive phone interview. "It's a disgrace what's going on. You're going to end up with a communist nation."

"And so, Devin, we just put out the release on Devin. We're very proud of that. We're proud of him. And I think it's got a chance to being a very important day. Actually, I think it's going to be a very important day."

In January, Nunes will become CEO of Trump's new Trump Media & Technology Group, which seeks to raise $1 billion and plans to release Truth Social, a social media site to compete with Facebook and Twitter.

"Congressman Devin Nunes is a fighter and a leader," TMTG announced Monday. "He will make an excellent CEO of TMTG. Devin understands that we must stop the liberal media and Big Tech from destroying the freedoms that make America great.

"America is ready for TRUTH Social and the end to censorship and political discrimination," the press released added.

Spicer asked Trump about the Biden administration's Securities and Exchange Commission reportedly seeking an investigation in Nunes and potentially TMTG.

"This is just a continuation of witch-hunts," Trump told Spicer. "Anything you do, they want to look at it. They look at it. They don't look at themselves. They don't look at Hunter [Biden]. They don't look at anybody. All they do is look at Republicans."

Trump also pitched his new coffee-table picture book, "Our Journey Together," which is being released Tuesday and has already sold more than 100,000 first-print copies in pre-order.
