Donald Trump Jr. signed a seven-figure multi-year podcast deal with Rumble, Axios reported Tuesday.

The son of former president Donald Trump will host a show called “Triggered with Don Jr.,” named after his 2019 book, “Triggered: How The Left Thrives On Hate And Wants To Silence Us.” The show will air live twice a week beginning Jan. 23, according to the outlet.

“Due to the live nature of Don’s podcast and others like it on our platform, I view our podcasts as something that won’t just compete with other podcasting networks, but will also compete with traditional linear television in the longterm,” Rumble CEO Chris Pavlovski said.

Trump Jr. joined the platform in 2021, filming a video in which he lauded Rumble for being “a platform that still believes in freedom of speech.” In the video, he blasted other video platforms, such as YouTube, for alleged censorship of conservative views. Trump Jr. has since amassed more than 1 million subscribers on the platform.

Rumble went public in September after a massive $2 billion deal. The merger awarded Rumble $400 million in proceeds. The platform took off in popularity during the 2020 election amid renewed frustrations on the right that their viewpoints were being censored on more mainstream platforms.
