Google approves Trump’s Truth Social app for Play Store


A company spokesperson said Wednesday that Google has finally approved Donald Trump’s social media app, Truth Social, for distribution on Google Play.

The app, which was banned back in August over insufficient content moderation policies, is now available for download on the Google Play Store.

“It’s been a pleasure to work with Google, and we’re glad they helped us to finally bring Truth Social to all Americans, regardless of what device they use,” TMTG’s Chief Executive Officer Devin Nunes said in a statement.

Truth Social, which offers a Twitter-like social experience and markets itself as a platform that “encourages an open, free, and honest global conversation,” was first launched in the United States on Apple’s App Store in February.

“Apps may be distributed on Google Play provided they comply with our developer guidelines, including the requirement to effectively moderate user-generated content and remove objectionable posts such as those that incite violence,” a Google spokesman said Wednesday.

CNBC reported that shares of Digital World Acquisition Corp, the company aiming to take former President Donald Trump’s media company public, jumped during premarket trading Thursday after Google approved Truth Social for the Play Store.
