Former U.S. President Donald Trump will return to social media — but this time with his own social network, a Trump spokesman told Fox News on Sunday.
Jason Miller, an adviser and spokesman for Trump’s 2020 campaign, told Howard Kurtz on Fox News’ “MediaBuzz” program that Trump “will probably return to social media in two or three months.”
Miller said Trump’s return will be through his “own platform” that will attract “tens of millions” of new users and “completely redefine the game.”
“That’s something I think will be the most popular on social media,” Miller said. You’re going to redefine the whole game, and everyone will wait and watch to see what President Trump is doing, but it’s going to be his own platform.”
During an appearance on Fox News, Miller noted that many companies have reached out to the former U.S. president and are in talks with teams about the new platform.
“This new platform is going to be great,” Miller said on Sunday. Everyone wants it and will bring millions — tens of millions — to this platform.”
The announcement comes after Trump’s Twitter accounts and other social media platforms, such as Facebook, were permanently suspended after he instigated riots at the Capitol on January 6 — where hundreds of Trump supporters stormed the building, killing five people.
After Trump’s Twitter ban, Jared Kushner, the former president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, intervened when other aides tried to persuade Trump to appear on marginal social media platforms, such as Barler and Gap.
