Building Former President Donald Trump’s Facebook-like platform “Truth Social” is taking time since it is being developed “from the ground up” separate from “Big Tech” entanglements, company CEO and former Rep. Devin Nunes told Newsmax on Monday.
Nunes, who retired as a member of the House of Representatives from California in January, repeated that the launch date of Truth Social will is slated for the end of March.
''We have to build this from the ground up. But the good news is that we are working closely with Apple,” Nunes said on ''Spicer & Co.'' “We are in beta-testing with Apple. But look, by the end of the month — by the end of March into the quarter — we're hopeful that every American will be able to get on.''
Nunes, who retired from politics to become CEO of the app's parent company, Trump Media & Technology Group, acknowledged that app stores had listed the launch date as Feb. 21.
Truth Social is an app that seeks to compete with Twitter and Facebook, and it recently partnered with the YouTube alternative video service Rumble to host video content, the Washington Examiner reported.
The former congressman said that beta testing is active, and the platform continues to grow exponentially.
''We are bringing people on right now,'' Nunes said. ''During this beta test, and we'll just keep growing and growing and growing, and we'll see where it goes. But this has not been an easy process, because this all has to be built without using the Big Tech companies.''
Nunes added that ''every single day,'' he hears stories from people who have been kicked off mainstream social media for posting conservative views.
''Every single day, I hear from people who said, 'I got kicked off of this platform, or that platform.' So, we're excited. We're excited to be doing this to give people their voice back.''
