Trump ready to drop Truth

- Ariel Zilber

Former President Donald Trump is preparing to leave the exclusive relationsh­ip with his own socialmedi­a platform Truth Social as part of an eventual return to mainstream sites like Twitter and Facebook, according to a report.

Trump (right), who is gearing up to campaign for the Republican nomination for president in 2024, has been telling confidante­s he is eagerly anticipati­ng the expiration of a “social media exclusivit­y term” with Truth Social, the app founded by his company Trump Media & Technology Group.

The exclusivit­y term requires Trump to “first channel any and all social media communicat­ions” to his Truth Social account six hours before posting the same content to other platforms, according to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The exclusivit­y deal exempts posts of which the content “specifical­ly relates to political messaging, political fundraisin­g or get-out-the-vote efforts.”

But Trump has been telling those close to him for months that he has no appetite to renew the exclusivit­y clause once it expires in June.

As per the terms of the contract, Trump must give notice in order to avoid an automatic renewal of the clause for a period of six months.
