Trump Preparing to Launch New Social Media Platform

"This is something that I think will be the hottest ticket in social media."


While most would be taking a well-deserved and much-needed break following four years in the White House, President Trump has been hard at work planning the launch of his own social media platform, an adviser revealed during a Sunday Fox News interview. 

“The fact the president’s been off of social media for a while because his press releases, his statements have actually been getting almost more play than he ever did on Twitter before,” Jason Miller said. 

“I’m not sure if that’s because the length of them are a bit longer. [We] even had one reporter say that she thought it was much more elegant, the way that the president was able to communicate his thoughts and very much looked more presidential in that longer form,” he added.  

“But I do think that we’re going to see President Trump returning to social media in probably about two or three months here with his own platform,” he hinted. “And this is something that I think will be the hottest ticket in social media. It’s going to completely redefine the game and everybody is going to be waiting and watching to see what exactly President Trump does.” 

“It will be his own platform,” he said. 

Miller urged that Trump has had “a lot of high-powered meetings” at Mar-a-Lago with big companies to discuss the platform and hopes to draw in tens of millions of users. 

The move comes almost three months after the Big Tech conglomerate went on a witch hunt after Trump, blacklisting him from nearly every platform. Twitter was the first to suspend Trump’s account following the Capitol riot on January 6, and several others followed suit shortly thereafter.
