A former Trump staff member has helped set up a new dating app for young conservatives looking to "amp up" their dating life that also takes aim at inclusivity.

The ironically named, The Right Stuff, is an invite-only free-to-use app, "so not just anyone can join", confirms Ryann McEnany in a promo, who adds it will launch in September.

Ryann is the sister of former Trump White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany. CBS News reports the app was set up by former Trump aide and appointees John McEntee, and Daniel Huff.

It has also reportedly been backed by PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel. 

In the promo, which sees McEnany uploading a photo of herself with Trump, it's clarified the app is for "ladies and gentlemen" which are "the only two options". Elsewhere she says, "no pronouns necessary"

She also says, "ladies, you'll never have to pay because we all get premium subscriptions for simply inviting a couple of friends." As for men, "if you want access to premium, that's on you," McEnany chirps.

Towards the end, she says, "We need to get back to the right way of dating" and encourages people to sign up for early access. The website for the app adds that it is for people "who know traditional is attractive."

The app, which seems almost identical to Tinder, gives users the option to post dates that everyone else can see or "the people you'd like to." 

People have been ripping into the app since the promo launched with one person writing, "Conservatives are such dorks, launching a dating app called 'The Right Stuff'"

While someone else said: "sounds like the stuff nightmares are made of."

Others compared it to a Saturday Night Live sketch and joked about not signing up. 

The Attitude September/October issue is out now.
