Trump To Launch Own Social Media Platform
Former US President Donald Trump will soon return to social media “with his own platform”, his adviser has said.
“I do think that we’re going to see President Trump returning to social media in probably about two or three months,” Jason Miller told Fox News.
He said the platform “will be the hottest ticket in social media” and would “completely redefine the game”.
Mr Trump was suspended from Twitter and Facebook after January’s deadly riots at the US Capitol in Washington DC.
The attack on 6 January by Trump supporters saw five people including a police officer killed, and shook the foundations of American democracy.
Several days later, Twitter said Mr Trump’s account – @realDonaldTrump – was “permanently suspended… due to the risk of further incitement of violence”.
Mr Trump used Twitter as a way, for more than 10 years, to bypass the traditional media and speak directly to voters.
Mr Miller provided no details on this, saying only that “everybody is going to be waiting and watching to see what exactly President Trump does”.
The adviser said Mr Trump had already had “high-powered meetings” with various teams regarding the venture at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
“Numerous companies” had already approached the former president, Mr Miller said.
“This new platform is going to be big,” he added, predicting that Mr Trump would draw “tens of millions of people”.
