Donald J. Trump: This Is About Saving Our Country

By: Donald J. Trump

Last week, I announced the creation of a major new company that will challenge the dominance of the Big Tech giants and Big Media bosses.

Today I want to explain more about what I am doing and why. For me, this endeavor is about much more than politics. This is about saving our country.

America has always been a nation of smart, spirited, and independent people who take pride in thinking for themselves. We admire those who aren’t afraid to speak their minds, or go against the tide. Yet suddenly, we find ourselves being censored and dictated to by a small group of self-righteous scolds and self-appointed arbiters of what everyone else is allowed to think, say, share, and do.

Nowhere is this censorship more dangerous and brazen than on social media, the public square of our times. We have seen renowned medical doctors being banned from platforms for contradicting “health authorities” or questioning the political narrative of the moment. We’ve seen scientists blacklisted for sharing evidence that the pandemic began in a Chinese lab.

We’ve seen vital reporting about Joe and Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings—information that voters needed and deserved to hear—ruthlessly suppressed and erased from the internet just weeks before a presidential election. And as everyone knows, we’ve seen a sitting president of the United States effectively silenced by a small oligarchy of tech titans and “mainstream” media corporations.

The corruption of these platforms cannot be ignored. We have fallen far down the “slippery slope” of censorship in our country, and the topics that Americans are increasingly forbidden to debate are among the most important issues of our day.

This wildly aggressive censorship and “cancel-culture” is not only un-American—it has direct, real-world consequences. Most obvious are the many catastrophes unfolding under the current administration: the calamitous Afghanistan withdrawal, the disaster at the Southern Border, runaway inflation, and the multi-trillion-dollar socialist spending nightmare, just to name a few. In a country that had free speech and a free flow of information, none of this would ever have happened—and no one understands that better than the people doing the censoring.

Yet the silencing and cancellation also affects our country in more subtle, but equally destructive, ways. How many Americans no longer trust a word they hear from their leaders, media, or public health officials, because the one thing they know for certain is that they are not getting the full story?

How many ordinary citizens have sadly come to resent their neighbors, feeling that they now live in two entirely different realities? And how many millions of Americans silently oppose so much of the nonsense being inflicted on us, but see the heavy hand of the cancelers, and conclude that their voice can make no difference, or that the cost of speaking up is just too high?

The new age of censorship is a disaster for our country. Things were far better in the days when we had our debates fiercely and openly, and then we could move forward together, as Americans, with both sides knowing that their voice, and their best arguments, had been heard.

The more I looked into this problem, the more I realized that to restore free speech, a major new platform would have to enter the market, with an ironclad commitment to protecting vigorous debate from all sides. But since it is both hard and expensive to build a new platform totally independent of Big Tech’s infrastructure, it would have to be an extremely well-funded, multi-year undertaking. In addition, such a platform would need the ability to rapidly attract millions of users, welcoming not only Republicans to join, but Independents and Democrats as well.

It’s a tremendously difficult set of challenges—and I realized I might be the only person in America with the megaphone, the resources, the experience, and the desire to make it all happen. So with the same “can-do” spirit that has always allowed Americans to persevere, that is exactly what I am doing.

To take on Big Tech censorship, we are creating a “Big Tent” platform: Truth Social. We are inviting people of all political stripes, and all different viewpoints, to come and participate once again in the great American debate. That’s what our country is supposed to be about. Unlike with the Big Tech platforms, there will be no shadow-banning, throttling, demonetizing, or messing with algorithms for political manipulation. We will not be treating users like lab rats for social experiments, or labeling alternative views as “disinformation.” We will not silence our fellow citizens simply because they might be wrong—or worse, because we think that Americans “can’t handle the truth.”

It will be as free, vibrant, lively, and diverse as America itself. And Truth Social is only the beginning of our plans. The Trump Media and Technology Group will also be launching an on-demand video streaming service that competes with the increasingly “woke” and politicized ‘entertainment’ programming created by Big Tech and Big Media players. TMTG also sees opportunities to create “cancel-proof” alternatives in other key areas ranging from web services to payment processing.

In the end, a small number of powerful people who all think the same and wish to silence anyone who thinks differently cannot be trusted to control almost every major media, technology, and entertainment company in America. I am determined to break their chokehold over the voices of the American People—not just for myself and my own supporters, but for the United States of America!

  1. We love you Trump! Thank you for this, and for everything. You are America’s best leader and fighter in my lifetime, and maybe/probably many lifetimes before mine!

  2. Read deep into this folks. He is pleading for the American people to understand the consequences of the Left’s desire to forget and destroy the past and personal sacrifices of our our men & women who gave it all for this country. This transformation must be stopped at all costs. GBA

  3. YES YES YES! This is exactly what we need to do! Divest ourselves from the corporate, woke oligarchs who rule over us like petty dictators. We will crush Zuck the cuck, Jack the Jihadist, Gates, and the rest. Live free or Die!

  4. Trump, you are not just “the Man”, you are Superman – the REAL Man of Steel! YOU stand for TRUTH, JUSTICE AND THE AMERICAN WAY. And the American Way is 3 things:
    MORALITY – To always do what is morally right.
    RESPONCIBILITY – Be responsible for yourself, your family and your community.
    SUCCESS – All Americans should, at all times, strive to do the best they can. To be successful their whole life.
    You truly believe in “One Nation Under GOD”.

  5. If you guys are so against cancel culture then why did you try to cancel the results of the 2020 election?

  6. I partly agree…but vpns are very easy to use. I feel the main thing would have to be adding captcha to much of the platform…the only way to slow down the Chinese user farms…

  7. you mean like ex-presidents? As THE WHO said”….wont be fooled again…” and especially not by a narcissistic mental 8 year old….

  8. He serves false “israel”. You can’t trust him. His face is on the half shekel. Q is a psy-op. You’ve been played. No one is coming to save us except us. Memes are not a substitute for a militia.

  9. We Can’t Wait To Have Freedom Of Speech Again Mr. President !! We Pray For You, The Alliance Our Nation & The World Daily !!
    GOD BLESS !!
