Former President Donald Trump may still be banned from Facebook and Twitter, but he will soon be breaking his silence on social media – through his very own social media platform.
On Sunday, Trump spokesperson and longtime adviser Jason Miller told Fox’s “MediaBuzz” that the former reality television star and head of state is planning on “returning to social media in probably about two or three months.”
The spokesperson for Trump’s failed 2020 reelection campaign added that the return would be through Trump’s “own platform” that they hope will attract “tens of millions” of users and would “completely redefine the game.”
Until now, social media giants Twitter and Facebook have dominated the scene, with smaller rivals including Parler, Minds, MeWe, Gab and others struggling to gain a substantial base. The former president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner reportedly intervened to prevent Trump from joining one of the smaller social networking platforms.
“This is something that I think will be the hottest ticket in social media,” Miller explained. “It’s going to completely redefine the game, and everybody is going to be waiting and watching to see what President Trump does, but it will be his own platform.”
Since being banned from Twitter and Facebook following the dramatic violence at the Capitol on Jan. 6, which the former president was accused of inciting, Miller claims that Trump has been approached by a number of companies regarding the new platform.
“This new platform is going to be big,” Miller added. “Everyone wants him and he’s going to bring millions and millions — tens of millions — to this platform.”
