Trump is planning a media and technology company rooted in social media, digital streaming, and more, according to the website for what is called Trump Media & Technology Co.
After the former president was literally blocked from his Twitter account, the promise is an open platform with no censorship, shadow banning, or deplatforming.
In wooing Devin Nunes to the new company, Trump gets a conservative and ally, as well as someone who has witnessed the liberal media bias and the censorship at Twitter and Facebook.
Geoff Dickens of Media Research Center says even Trump-hating liberals, who value free speech and a robust discussion, will be welcomed as well.
“You don't want it to be an echo chamber,” he observes. “Maybe you have some rooms for that, but you don't want it to be a total echo chamber.”
Another benefit for Nunes, Dickens says, is that Trump Media & Technology Group will not be headquartered in Republican hating-California, the once-great home of Ronald Reagan.
"I don't blame Congressman Nunes for getting out," he says.
Regarding a future presidential run for Trump, Dickens says it is just too early to tell if this new venture is a new direction for the one-term president or part of a future plan to run for the White House.
