Donald Trump is getting ready to launch his new social media platform on February 21 – Presidents Day – according to its Apple App Store listing. Trump has talked up his plans to take on Big Tech ever since he was banned from Twitter and Facebook during the aftermath of the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, when his supporters attacked police and stormed Congress. Since then, one of his top lieutenants has launched GETTR, building a big following among conservatives and passing four million users on Friday. But Trump announced he was launching Trump Media Technology Group towards the end of last year, with plans for a subscription video-on-demand service called TMTG+ with entertainment, news and podcasts, as well as a social media platform.
