EXCLUSIVE: Samsung has added former President Trump's Truth Social to its Galaxy app store with Trump Media and Technology Group CEO Devin Nunes stressing that the social media platform is the only one that prevents Big Tech from extinguishing free speech in the United States.
Truth Social was available in the Galaxy Store Tuesday for Samsung users.
Samsung has been great -- they are very easy to work with, and they don't care about politics, TMTG CEO Devin Nunes told FOX Business Tuesday. They just want to do their business, get it done, and move on. TMTG started the submission process to enter the Samsung Galaxy StoreSamsung Galaxy Store in late September. It took less than two weeks from the initial submission date to the date the platform became available to users.
Trump's social media app has been available in the Apple App Store since February 21.
Since early July, TMTG has been working with Google to enter the Play Store, but so far, has not yet been able to get Truth Social admitted to the app store.
Nunes told Fox Business that they continue to have an open and productive dialogue with Google and that they hope that Android users will soon be able to download Truth Social from the Play Store.
Google told FOX Business they are having productive conversations with TMTG regarding Truth Social's addition to the Google Play Store.
Truth Social is currently available for pre-order in the Google Play Store.
Nunes, who joined TMTG in December 2021 after retiring from Congress after nearly two decades, touted Truth Social.
Nunes said Truth Social is the only social media platform that prevents Big Tech from extinguishing free speech in the United States, along with Rumble's unparalleled cloud infrastructure. The importance of free-speech platforms will continue to grow as well as the media, Big Tech, academia, and other crucial sectors are growing as a result of the impetus to suppress dissenting points of view. The first time that was launched was the October launch of the Trump Media Technology Group. The partner has agreements for $1 billion in capital from institutional investors, according to the company last month.
TMTG wants to become a publicly traded company through a merger with the publicly traded Digital World Acquisition Corp., a special purpose acquisition company whose sole purpose is to acquire a private company and take it public.
