After being banned from Twitter and other outlets, Donald Trump plans to return to social media soon, using “his own platform,” according to a former advisor. “I think we’ll see President Trump return to social media in about two or three months,” Fox News’ Jason Miller predicted.
“It’s going to completely redefine the game, and everyone will be waiting and watching to see what exactly president Trump does,” Miller, who served in senior positions in both of Trump’s presidential campaigns, said.
Trump’s provocative use of social media was a defining feature of his presidency, as he amassed 88 million Twitter followers and frequently used tweets to slam his critics, announce personnel changes, and announce major policy shifts. However, after using his @realDonaldTrump account to urge people to attend the rally that turned violent, Twitter permanently suspended his account.
Other major platforms, such as Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Snapchat, have also banned Trump, either temporarily or indefinitely.
The former president has largely maintained a low profile since leaving Washington and returning to his Mar-a-Lago resort home in Florida, issuing only occasional news releases.
Trump, on the other hand, has been hard at work, according to Miller.
“He’s been having a lot of high-powered sessions at Mar-a-Lago with some squads of people who’ve been coming in,” Miller said. “There have been a lot of businesses.” He continued, ” “This new platform will be huge, and everyone wants to be a part of it. He’s going to attract tens of millions of people to this new platform.”
