Donald Trump Says Truth Social Represents the 'Make America Great Again' Movement

In a Truth Social post, Donald Trump said the social media app "represents" the political "movement" of his "Make America Great Again" campaign slogan. He added that "it shows the Spirit and Love of our Country."

"If people who believe in putting America First and want to Make America Great Again, support TRUTH, we will be your Voice like never before, and a Real Voice is what our Country needs, because we are in decline, and must bring America to Greatness," the former president wrote.

However, CNBC reported that the exact intent behind Trump's message was unclear since it was confusing if he was urging his followers to use the app or buy shares in Trump Media, which recently started publicly trading on the Nasdaq.
