Trump Unleashes A Slew Of QAnon Posts On Truth Social
Former President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning posted a barrage of QAnon and 4chan conspiracy theories.
His posts totaled above 60 and followed his controversial call to “redo” the 2020 election as he claimed again that he was the “rightful winner” following statements made by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Joe Rogan’s podcast.
The posts attacked President Joe Biden, called the 2020 election results false, furthered QAnon accounts’ posts and denounced the FBI as “breaking the American spirit” after agents executed a search warrant on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence earlier this month.

QAnon and 4chan posts mainly pertain to misinformation and support for taking violence against the “deep state,” which is a conspiracy pushed by Trump and his allies that there is a group of actors in the government and other industries that work together to consolidate power and attack democracy.
Trump founded Truth Social after being booted from Twitter. The social media platform said he used it unlawfully as he was responsible for the inciting violence of the January 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.
This week, however, news broke that Truth Social may be facing financial problems. It owes a reported $1.6 million to RightForge, a tech company that was hired to provide internal infrastructure to the app, according to Fox Business.
