Donald Trump has been in talks with no-name app vendors as he contemplates partnering with an existing platform to create his own social media network, according to sources familiar with the private discussions.
Driving the news: Among the social networking apps the former president and his digital adviser Dan Scavino have homed in on is a relatively unknown platform called FreeSpace, these sources told Axios.
It’s unclear how this business relationship would work. Trump is famously averse to putting his own money into companies, preferring to license his name and use other people’s money to fund his ventures.
