A former adviser said on Sunday that Donald Trump plans to use his “own platform” to return to social media soon after being banned by Twitter and other media.
Jason Miller told Fox News: “I do think we will see President Trump return to social media in about two or three months.”
Miller said: “This will completely redefine the game. Everyone will wait and see what President Trump has done, but this will be his own platform.”
Trump’s provocative use of social media was a hallmark feature of his presidency, because he attracted 88 million followers to Twitter, and often used tweets to criticize his critics or announce personnel changes or major policy changes.
However, Twitter suspended its @realDonaldTrump account permanently after encouraging people to participate in a rally for the violent attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6.
Trump has also been temporarily or permanently banned by other major platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Snapchat.
Since leaving Washington and returning to his Mar-a-Lago vacation home in Florida, the former president has maintained a relatively low-key attitude, mainly issuing press releases occasionally.
But Miller said Trump has been working hard.
Miller said: “He participated in many high-power conferences with many people in Mar-a-Lago.” “There are many companies.”
He added: “This new platform will become very big and everyone wants him. He will bring millions to tens of millions of people to join this new platform.”
Miller did not provide other details, nor did he disclose whether he would personally intervene.
Although Trump was defeated by Democrat Joe Biden in November, he is still very influential in the Republican Party and does not rule out the possibility of a third presidential run in 2024.
