Significantly, on January 6, 2021, Trump supporters attacked the US Capitol, claiming fraud in the 2020 US presidential elections. Donald Trump was accused of encouraging his supporters to participate in the attack. After this Twitter and Facebook banned Donald Trump on their platform. After 13 months of this incident, Donald Trump is coming with his social media app.

US President Joe Biden on Thursday hit out at Trump as the US Capitol attack completed one year, saying his predecessor’s false claims could influence future elections.
Trump’s media venture TMTG and Apple did not respond to a request for comment to Reuters. But a source related to this matter has confirmed that the launch of the app has been planned on February 21.

The first phase of development of TMTG is expected to be completed with the launch of the app. According to the company’s website, soon a video-on-demand service called TMTG+ will be launched with a focus on entertainment, news and podcasts. It will be subscription based. There are also reports that TMTG is also looking to launch a podcast network. Based on the stock price of Digital World Acquisition, TMTG is valued at $5.3 billion (approximately Rs.39,430 crore). It rose 20 percent after Reuters reported the app was listed on the App Store.
