Why did Trump’s team create a brand new social media platform?

It appears that Trump is ready to be back in the political arena full force, so his team is developing creative ways for him to connect with voters. One of the most bizarre things his team has done to reach voters is create a brand new social media platform. 

Yes, Trump has his own social media platform now called GETTR. His team unveiled the new social media channel quietly this week when it went live on Thursday. The project is being led by Trump’s former spokesman Jason Miller. 

The new social media option is being marketed as an alternative to big social media channels that Trump’s team says are known for silencing users and limiting free speech. GETTR officials claim the new site’s mission is “fighting cancel culture, promoting common sense, defending free speech, challenging social media monopolies, and creating a true marketplace of ideas.”

What else do we know about GETTR and does Trump already have a profile setup?
