Fox News reports that Trump Media and Technology Group CEO Devin Nunes noted on Friday that Truth Social is attempting to build its own ad platform “because we don’t want to be beholden to Google.”
The former California congressman, who now runs former President Trump’s app Truth Social, made the comment on “Mornings with Maria” the day after a bipartisan group of senators led by Utah Republican Mike Lee introduced legislation that would force Google to break up its dominant online-ad business.
The Competition and Transparency in Digital Advertising Act would “restore and protect competition in digital advertising by eliminating conflicts of interest that have allowed the leading platforms in the market to manipulate ad auctions and impose monopoly rents on a broad swath of the American economy,” a news release from Lee’s office noted.
“There is no question that Google has multiple monopolies across multiple sectors of the tech sector,” Nunes told host Maria Bartiromo. “And that’s why at Truth Social we are attempting to build our ad platform because we don’t want to be beholden to Google.”
