Biden campaign to open an account on Trump’s Truth Social

EXCLUSIVE: The Biden campaign is launching an account on former President Trump’s Truth Social, Fox News Digital has learned.

Biden campaign officials told Fox News Digital they are joining Truth Social in an effort to “meet voters where they are.”

“Republicans can’t even agree on a House speaker, so clearly not all Republicans think the same thing,” a Biden campaign official told Fox News Digital.

Biden campaign officials say they are “injecting our message” into GOP primary coverage and plan to combat “misinformation” about President Biden that may appear on the social media platform.

“There’s very little ‘truth’ happening on TruthSocial, but at least now it will be a little fun,” a senior Biden campaign official told Fox News Digital on Monday.

The Biden campaign handle should be @BidenHQ. Campaign officials said their first message is expected to be released later Monday.

“Well. Let’s see how it goes. Converts welcome!” The first message of the campaign should be read.

Campaign officials said they plan to hold “MAGA accountable on its own platform.” Officials pointed to the campaign’s existing account on “X,” formerly known as Twitter, where they post content from Republican politicians and candidates attacking their opponents.

“We will take advantage of the fact that Republicans can sometimes be our best messengers!” a campaign official told Fox News Digital.

Officials likened the move to the Biden campaign “entering the lion’s den to point out Republican hypocrisy and have a little fun at their own expense.”

Truth Social told Fox News Digital that it is a “free and open platform” and that “anyone from around the world can join.”

Former Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., is the company’s CEO.


And when asked to comment on the Biden campaign’s decision to join Truth Social, Trump campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung told Fox News Digital:

“Crooked Joe Biden and his team finally recognize that Truth Social is hot as a gun and the only place real news happens,” Cheung said. “Unfortunately for Biden, his continued spread of false information to mislead the American people to distract from his disastrous record will not work and they will be doomed to oblivion.”
