TMGT also claimed for the first time that a beta version of the TRUTH Social website has been launched, after it was reported the beta version hadn’t gone online by TMGT’s self-imposed November deadline.
Trump said in a statement that Rumble is already providing cloud services to the beta website, which he said is for “invited guests only.”
A full rollout of the website is expected in the first quarter of 2022.
“The initial Beta launch has been excellent,” Trump said. “America is ready for TRUTH Social, and the end to cancel culture.”
