Donald Trump Jr., together with former Trump spokesperson Taylor Budowich, has launched a news aggregation app called, “MxM News.”
Trump Jr. said that he hoped the app, which refers to “minute by minute,” will compete with giants such as Apple News and Google News, Axios reported.
“As I travel around the country, the complaint I hear more than almost anything else is that people don’t know what media outlets, journalists or stories they can actually trust,” Trump Jr. said.
“We created the MxM News app to help people cut through that clutter and get trustworthy news and information about topics that matter and impact their lives,” Trump Jr. further said.
According to Trump Jr., a team of around eight staffers will curate content from various publishers.
The creators of the app currently have no plans to hire their own journalists or to create original content.
Trump Jr. and his father have long called several news stories, reporters, and news media as “fake news” without any evidence.
According to The Washington Post on January 2021, former President Donald Trump has made a total of 30,573 false or misleading claims in over four years.
The launch comes as former Trump officials and Trump himself have released their own apps and websites.
Trump soft launch the “Truth Social” app last month, which had various glitches.
Former Trump aide Jason Miller launched the “Gettr” social app last year while former Trump adviser created “The Right Stuff,” a conservative dating app.
