Political operative says his free-speech-focused platform has secured financial support from entity close to fugitive Chinese businessman
Former Trump adviser Jason Miller says a new, free-speech-focused social-media platform he is leading has received financial backing from a foundation tied to fugitive Chinese businessman Guo Wengui.
Called Gettr—a portmanteau of “getting together”—the Twitter -like platform appeared in app stores last month and will formally launch on July 4, Mr. Miller said.
Mr. Miller, who recently left Mr. Trump’s office to serve as chief executive of the venture, said Gettr—registered in Delaware and headquartered in New York—was backed by international investors that include “the Guo family foundation.” He added Mr. Guo doesn’t have a direct financial stake or direct role in Gettr, nor did he identify the foundation that made the investment.
