Is Rumble President Trump’s new platform?
After Twitter censored President Trump, the Trump team said that the President would be on another social media platform.
And on the day of his Rally in Wellington, Ohio, President Trump opens a verified Rumble account.
Could the timing be any more perfect?
The news broke on Twitter from Dan Scavino, former White House Deputy Chief of Staff:

Quickly, the news spread and had many wondering if Rumble would be the platform to showcase President Trump’s grand return to social media.
FYI President Trump just opened his Official Rumble Account, per @DanScavino.
From what I'm hearing, 45 will be doing daily vlogs and covering his own rallies.https://t.co/2FeFeo3ApH

He already has 45,000 followers in like an hour…

Currently, President has 79,000 subscribers and that number will only continue to grow.
Reuters has confirmed the news that the account on Rumble is indeed President Trump’s:
Trump spokeswoman Liz Harrington told Reuters that joining Rumble was in addition to the former president’s plan to start his own platform, rather than a replacement for this plan. Trump, who earlier this month shut down his recently-launched blog, has not given details on the proposed platform.
“It is a great way to reach the American people in a time of unprecedented assault on free speech in our country by Big Tech tyrants,” Harrington said in an email to Reuters.
Rumble Chief Executive Officer Chris Pavlovski confirmed Trump’s verified account had been set up on the site but declined to comment further. Trump advisor Dan Scavino tweeted that Trump’s Ohio rally would be live-streamed on the platform.
Rumble, which was launched in 2013 by Canadian tech entrepreneur Pavlovski as an alternative YouTube-style site, has become popular with U.S. conservatives.
Billionaire venture capitalist Peter Thiel and J.D. Vance, the author of “Hillbilly Elegy,” are investors in the platform.
President Trump’s Rumble appearance seems to be in addition to the plan to start his own platform.
Until then, I’ll be waiting with my popcorn on President Trump’s Rumble for tonight’s Rally:
