President Trump not only founded and created Truth Social but (of course) he has the biggest following.
And despite launching on February 20, 2022, our favorite President has remained essentially silent on the platform, with no posts.
Today he broke his silence and it’s got everyone stirred up!
Here was the message:
You gotta love this guy!
Standing outside of Mar-a-lago on one of the most pristine lawns I have ever seen and Tweeting — errrrrrrrr — TRUTHING!
Or as Elon says it should have been called, “Trumpeting”.
I admit, I do like the name Trumpet.
But here’s the best part, he tagged it with #COVFEFE.
Remember that old Tweet when Trump was on Twitter and it said this?
The world went nuts trying to figure it out….
Was it a goof?
A fat finger?
A mis-spelling of some other word?
A secret code?
Later he followed that up with this one, seemingly implying that there IS a meaning:
So it’s hilarious that as he drops his first post on Truth, he returns to #COVFEFE.
Just a laugh?
Or is he signaling a code?
Brian Cates wisely points out there are two options:
Dan Scavino appears to have eliminated option 1.
Watch this short clip where he confirms there IS a meaning and one day he hopes to be able to explain what it is….
Dan Scavino on #covfefe: “Those that need to know, know. But the covfefe one is probably one of the all time greats, and one of these days I’ll be able to tell or share that story.” (June 2021)
Sure sounds like a secret code / comm to me!

Here’s more, from Fox News:
Former President Trump joined his own TRUTH Social on Thursday, posting on a social media platform for the first time in more than a year with a throwback to his now-infamous 2017 typo “covfefe.”
“I’M BACK! #COVFEFE,” Trump posted on TRUTH Social Thursday afternoon with a photo of himself in front of his Mar-a-Lago property in Palm Beach, Florida.
The hashtag “covfefe” was referring to one of his deleted tweets in 2017 in which he decried the media’s coverage of his administration.
“Despite the constant negative press covfefe,” Trump wrote in a tweet on May 30, 2017 that received more than 100,000 retweets and 100,000 likes before being deleted.
Trump, on Monday, told Fox News he would not return to Twitter, even as Elon Musk purchased the social media company and reinstates his account. Trump said he would, instead, use his own TRUTH Social as the sole platform for his voice.
Twitter, on Monday afternoon, announced it agreed to be acquired by Musk for $44 billion.
“I am not going on Twitter, I am going to stay on TRUTH,” Trump told Fox News. “I hope Elon buys Twitter because he’ll make improvements to it and he is a good man, but I am going to be staying on TRUTH.”
Trump told Fox News on Monday he would begin “TRUTHing” this week.
The Trump Media & Technology Group social media platform, TRUTH Social, formally launched last month and has been up and running under its brand-new cloud services for four days, after having beta-tested since February. Former Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., is the company’s CEO.
“We’re taking in millions of people, and what we’re finding is that the response on TRUTH is much better than being on Twitter,” Trump said. “Twitter has bots and fake accounts, and we are doing everything we can.”
He added: “The bottom line is, no, I am not going back to Twitter.”
Here’s one more piece of great analysis from Brian Cates on why President Trump waited until EXACTLY now to finally post.
Think it’s an accident or random?
I think everything he does is highly calculated and so does Brian:
