California Republican Rep. Devin Nunes, a longtime ally of Donald Trump, will leave Congress to run the former president’s new social media company.
The Trump Media & Technology group said in a statement that Nunes will serve as its chief executive officer, beginning in January. Trump announced in October it would launch a social network called Truth Social to take on Twitter, Facebook and Google-owned YouTube after those companies booted him from their platforms following the deadly US Capitol Hill riot in January.
