Sick and tired of news organizations deciding for you which stories are important and which opinions you should have? Well, so was Donald Trump Jr. So, he and his team developed a new way to read the news: MxM News. It’s an app that ‘cut[s] through the censorship, mainstream bias, and institutional dominance that has left society divided and misinformed.’ MxM News provides you with information from all kinds of sources — ones that sway to the left AND to the right. ‘We let people actually use their brains,’ Trump Jr. tells Glenn, ‘and, you know, make their own opinions.’
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: Cofounder of MXM News, a new app that you should absolutely download and use. Donald Trump Jr. is on with us. Hey, Don, how are you?
DON: I'm doing well. Yourself?
GLENN: I'm doing great. I'm doing great. Thank you for this app, by the way. Tell people what it does exactly.
DON: My pleasure.
Well, MXM, like minute by minute, it's an app for people who actually want to see the news. Glenn, you have a lot of followers. I'm pretty sure that Apple's news algorithm has never shown anyone one of their stories that they want to --
GLENN: It used to be -- about ten years ago, it was pretty good. Now, nothing. Nothing.
DON: No. You'll never show up. Just like, you know, you maybe show up in my Twitter feed, 10 percent of the times you post.
GLENN: Correct. Correct.
DON: But 150 percent of CNN News shows up in my feed, whether I follow it or not.
GLENN: I know. I know.
DON: That's how the algorithm works. These stories, they do exist. The Hunter Biden laptop, people were writing about it. But the vast majority of America, did not see that story. We now know that 20 percent of Biden voters literally said they would not have voted for them, had they not voted about it. It was the cover of the New York Post. But big tech decided that no one saw that. Because it would hurt the odds of them forwarding their political agenda. So I said, you know what, enough is enough. I know people are writing these stories. I see it, but I spent all day looking at this stuff like you do. So we decided, a couple friends of mine. All super political guys, to come up with an app. Create an app. That will literally pluck from all stories. I mean, there's mainstream media in there as well, but you'll see the Glenn Beck stuff. You'll see stuff from TheBlaze. You'll see stuff from Breitbart. The stories that are being suppressed will also show up equally. So you can actually read about everything and then formulate your own opinion. That's what this was about. And we just saw that it literally didn't exist. The places were even conservatives were still getting their news. Were so heavily biased. The big hand of big tech was suppressing everything that they want to read. And we have to make sure that this stuff is out there, so that these disasters don't happen in the future. And until big tech decides to actually believe in free speech. And not censorship. And not controlling that type of message. Somebody will have to step up and do it.
GLENN: I will tell you, that this is so needed. And I appreciate the fact that you are putting in the mainstream sources, so you see it. I don't -- I want to read all of it. I want to choose, what to read, what not to read. You know what I mean?
CHIP: Yeah, 100 percent. I read four or five articles on a subject. I don't just take one as a gospel, because I'll always take out an extra point in something there. You know, you can see that bias, then when you actually -- oh, I didn't realize X, Y, Z. Right? You saw that with Kyle Rittenhouse. Oh, you know the people that he killed weren't African-Americans. I didn't know that. I was told he was a white supremacist, right? So you can see that bias. It really helps formulate your opinion. Literally, we created this app. It's totally free. You can download it for i Phone and Google. You know, if you don't like it, delete it. It's that simple. We're not asking for information or emails. We're literally just trying to make sure that people can have access to the news that exists, but they won't see elsewhere.
GLENN: So how do you do this? Is there an algorithm? Is this hand selected? How is this done?
DON: Right now. We literally have a team of guys going through all the sources. Picking the things that will be trending. They will show the diversity of both opinions. You know, mainstream as well as sort of the things that I still consider mainstream. I mean, I say you guys are mainstream based on simply the amount of following that you have.
DON: But no algorithm from the urine big tech suspects, is ever going to highlight that. It may show up. You'll get 10 percent of the following. It's like my Instagram feed. You know, 10 percent of the people who want to see my stuff, will maybe see it at best. Whereas I see stuff from people I don't even follow. And it magical shows up there, and every suggested follow is a Democrat politician, never a Republican, even though I don't know what would lead them to believe that I'm wanting to follow Bernie Sanders. But nonetheless, it's there.
GLENN: Yeah. I get the --
DON: They make it really easy for people -- honestly, you can just go to DonJr.com. Like at the top of my home page, just D-O-N-J-R.com, you see there -- you can click there. If you have Android, click the link there. It will take you right to the Android store. If you have the i Phone, it will take you right to the app and the i Phone store. It was leaving the downloaded app on Apple all weekend. Which was pretty cool for news and stuff like that. And so people are into it. It's a very simple platform. You choose the preferences of things that you want to see. And those are the things that will end up in your feed. And you will actually see the stories that you were missing all the time.
GLENN: Yeah. I'm looking. Business insider. TheBlaze. Politico. Associated Press. Breitbart. Rumble. TheBlaze. National Pulse. The Federalist. Daily Caller. The Hill. Daily Star. Bloomberg. Newsweek. You are covering -- you are covering the news.It not an agenda-driven thing. It seems to be a truth-driven thing, which is what we're lacking right now.
JASON: 100 percent. You know, there's no agenda behind it. We let people actually use their brains. And, you know, make their own opinions. And that's what it should be about. But it hasn't been for so long.
And, again, for so long, I use social for my news, but again, if I'm getting 90 percent of the other stuff in, I believed, based on the last five years. That, you know, I was working on Russia. I'm an agent of Russia. Based on the nonsense that's out there, not actually the truth.
So it's the kind of thing, literally in ten minutes, you could scroll through, and have all of the news from all of the sources, from all over the world, in one place. It's a great way to get educated quickly, without having to sort through the filter, without having to actively search the stuff that you would be looking for to maybe find the corollary opinion. So, yeah. We're pretty excited about it. And just trying to fight back against the nonsense that we've been seeing. I've been preaching about it for a long time. A lot of people were saying, build your own. So we did. We did.
GLENN: Don, I get a question all the time. What sites do we check? I check a million of them. But I follow one site done by an aggregator. He's got the best finger on the pulse for stories that I've ever seen. And most people don't even know about the website, it's called Spin Quark.
You should look that up for stories. Because it's a great selection of stories. Spin Quark.
DON: I'll check it out. Yeah, and this was really also in part to fill the void that Breitbart -- that Drudge left, and when Drudge sort of got -- I guess he sold and got woke. And the new guy is a liberal and all that stuff. But when you have the Drudge Report, that used to break big stories, now they won't even cover it, the Durham report. Mainstream media, talks zero seconds about Hunter Biden and the laptop. And, you know, now that they've got what they wanted, they can say, oh, yeah, I guess we were wrong, it wasn't really Russian disinformation, despite 200 intelligence officials, signing on to the letter, as though it's real, as though they had some information that it was Russian disinformation. You know, we're trying to cut out that nonsense.
Because there's plenty of it out there. You see it right now I'm sure with Russia and Ukraine. You know, I don't honestly know what to believe. Because I've been in the room for the last five years, as they've lied. As they've reported what happened in the room that I was in. And the true things have nothing to do with each other. They don't even resemble each other remotely. One is a messaging designed to derive a narrative, the other is what actually happened. And again, there doesn't have to be a correlation between the two anymore. And that's a shame. So we're trying to eliminate that.
GLENN: It's MXM, like minute by minute. MXM. You can get it wherever you get your apps. I highly recommend you download it and use it. It's a great way to stay in touch with the news, without the liberal algorithms telling you what you should read. Read it all. Read it all.
Don, I want to ask you a bit. Your dad said yesterday, that Russia should release what they have on Hunter Biden's, you know, bribes. What we think are bribes, and sure look like bribes.
Yesterday, also we found out the FBI, gee, what did I do with that Hunter Biden laptop? They don't know where it is.
Luckily, there are copies of it now, and it was entered in the Congressional Record, yesterday.
What is your -- what's your take on what's happening with not Hunter Biden, but how this will affect Joe Biden, because this story is about him think compromised?
DON: Yeah. And as this thing started weeks ago. I was like, hey, has anyone ever thought about maybe the fact that our response to the Russia Ukraine situation is totally misguided, because they're trying to cover up what they know still exists out there. That maybe we don't know about it. I mean, the FBI, who I guarantee you, has every text message to anyone who was within a 1500 mile radius of Washington, DC, on January 6th. Right? You're grandmother. They're spying on them. They haven't lost that text message. But they don't know where the Hunter Biden laptop is. Because, you know, it's just not that important, that Hunter was laundering money for Russian oligarchs, tied to human trafficking and sex trafficking rings.
And he was doing all sorts of shady business. That's not relevant to the FBI anymore, Glenn. That stuff doesn't matter. And that's just part of the swamp. And it's just totally acceptable. You know, again, if your grandmother took a selfie near the capital that week.
All right. She's in trouble. We're going to investigate her. I guarantee you, that they spent more time researching the garage pool door at Bubba Watson's supposed hate crime thing with Denmark, than they ever did looking into the Hunter Biden laptop.
GLENN: Oh, yeah.
DON: This is a recurring pattern. These people and the leadership at the FBI is so corrupted. Imagine if it was my laptop. You think it would just go missing? Yeah, no, it would be exhibit A. It would be everywhere. It would be on the cover of every mainstream periodical in the country. It would be everywhere. It's Hunter Biden's -- now we know it's true. Now we know it's missing. These aren't coincidences, Glenn. These aren't stupid people. They may be biased. They may be partisan. But they're not stupid. They don't just lose these things. And, again, if it was about their political enemies, rather than the people who will get them their 10 percent in time, I guarantee you, it wouldn't be lost.
GLENN: We're talking to Donald Trump Jr. the cofounder of MXM. An app that you should download. Don, I have about a minute. A minute left. Can you just tell me. I mean, because when you look -- something is wrong with this war. Something is very, very wrong. The way Biden is playing this. It almost seems like he wants a really big war to happen. How much of -- of the Hunter Biden stuff do you think is playing a role, in what the president governor is saying about governor Putin, and the direction we seem to be moving in?
DON: Listen, I think it's pretty significant. Ukraine also -- there's not a country out there, that doesn't have a Hunter Biden laptop, or a clone thereof. I mean, all of our enemies seem to have a Hunter Biden laptop. The only people that don't have a Hunter Biden laptop are the FBI, because they lost it I guess.
So I guess I think our decision-making process is literally being done to protect Joe Biden. Hunter Biden. And their shady dealings abroad. And the fact that there is no one in the media, even questioning if that could be the case, is more scary, Glenn.
GLENN: Yeah. It is.
DON: Because it was sort of obvious. Right? He was doing all these deals for no reason, with no experience and millions of dollars, and yada, yada, yada. With both countries. And they're not even saying, hey, do you think maybe our response is biased, because of that? I mean, that to me is truly scary. I mean, literally has asked that question. I've been asking it for a month. I know if it was me. They would say, Trump is making this decision because he's compromised by this country. But Joe Biden is not? Give me a break. Is there anything in Joe Biden's history or Hunter Biden's history that would allow us to believe that they are taking the high road, and they're doing the right thing for the people of America? Like, we could be on the verge of World War III with Russia to cover up a Hunter Biden scam. We're going to send our kids over there to die, to protect a crackhead. Like are we out of our minds? And, again, the fact that no one is asking the question, makes it even scarier. But, again, you won't hear that reported. Which is a big reason why we created MXM News so that you can see it yourself.
GLENN: Thank you so much, Don. Appreciate it. We'll talk to you again. Our best to your family. God bless.
DON: Thanks a lot, Glenn. Be well.
GLENN: MXM is the name of the app. All right. Knowledge is power, but especially true right now.
