Democrat Gavin Newsom made his first post on America’s red-state murders on Donald Trump’s social media platform Truth Social.
Gavin Newsom made his first post on Truth Social
Democratic Governor of California Gavin Newsom announced Thursday that he had joined Donald Trump’s social media platform Truth Social. Nesom tweeted, saying he would use this platform to debunk the “Republican lies.” “I just joined Trump’s Truth Social. Going to be on there calling out Republican lies. This could get interesting,” the governor said. The governor further talks about his first post on the platform. His first post on Truth is about America’s red-state murders. “My first post is breaking down America’s red-state murder problem,” he said, adding a link to his Truth Social post.
The video link that Newsom attached is his claims that the states with the highest murder rates make up most of the red states. There is no such evidence of the allegations made by Newsom as he received these stats from center-left think tank Third Way. The reports from the center-left think tank Third Way recorded that 8 of the 10 states with the highest murder rates in 2020 have voted for Republican candidates in every election this past decade. The Democrats are blaming the rising crime rates in America on the Republicans.
Though the Democratic Governor Newsom has nothing good to say about Trump, his joining Truth Social is a blessing in disguise for Trump’s platform. Now that one Democrat has joined the forum, other high-profile Democrats will follow. Trump’s network is facing some problems, so if more Democrats join Truth, it will be a boon for Trump Media & Technology Group and Truth.
Democrat Gavin Newsom’s video that he posted on Truth
The video that Newsom posted on Truth talks about the states with the highest murder rates. He says that the states with the highest murder rates are all red states. Newsom asks about what policies and laws are present in such States and talks about what to do so we can prevent such horrific crimes from occurring.” The question is simple: What are the laws and policies in those states leading to such carnage?”
Overview of Truth Social
Truth Social is the social media platform started by former President Donald Trump’s company, Trump Media & Technology group. Trump Media & Technology group founded this platform after Twitter banned Trump following the 6th January 2021 U.S. Capitol attack. On 6th January 2021, Trump’s supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol building in an attempt to overturn the 2020 presidential elections. Trump and the CEO of TMTG thought their thoughts and opinions were not being heard.
The main aim of Truth and Trump is to get back at the big tech companies in Silicon Valley because they tried to censor Trump’s voice. Truth Social’s primary purpose is to promote a free and safe user environment. TMTG launched Truth for the IOS users on 21st February 2022. The best feature of Truth is that it won’t ban someone for sharing their views and perspective. Truth Social aims to be a free and open-source distributed social network. According to TMTG CEO Devin Nunes, Truth Social will have the best of all worlds. The best of Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
