Trump's platform for fighting the "tyranny of Big Tech" is also being used to raise money for Republican campaigns.
The Trump Media and Technology Group has reportedly partnered with the National Republican Senatorial Committee to fundraise for the 2022 midterm elections.
Users claim they received texts allowing them to reserve usernames on Truth Social in exchange for a donation to the NRSC.
"TRUMP ALERT: Trump is making his comeback with a social media platform all his own, and we want YOU to join!" a text read, according to a screenshot sent to the Daily Dot.
The text linked to a page on Winred.com, the "official, secure payments technology designed to help GOP candidates and committees win across the US." Winred.com was created in 2019 and raised more than $1 billion in campaign donations during the 2020 election.

The page requests additional information and asks users to join "Trump's Social Media." Regardless of the answer, users are directed to a second page where they can reserve a username and donate to the NRSC.
Users can make a monthly donation as one of the "TOP TRUMP SUPPORTERS" or check a box and double the donation if "YOU WILL JOIN PRESIDENT TRUMP'S SOCIAL MEDIA!"
The website does not have links to Truth Social or any direct mention of it. The website refers to it as "Donald Trump's Social Media." Users can already register for Truth Social on its main page at no cost, albeit without the ability to reserve a username.
It remains unclear if the website registers users for Truth Social, as the platform is currently inaccessible.
Trump announced Truth Social in October as an alternative to the "tyranny of Big Tech." The website eventually raised $1 billion via SPAC but has faced some scrutiny over its handling of software licensing. While the company promised a product beta by November 2021, TMTG has not announced a release date for its products.
