Trump Could Launch His Own Social Media Platform Soon

'I would expect that we will see the president reemerge...'

Former President Donald Trump could roll out his own social media platform in the near future, according to Jason Miller, one of Trump’s senior advisers.

He told Breitbart that Trump would be back on social media soon after being kicked off of Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and other platforms one week before leaving office.

“I would expect that we will see the president reemerge on social media,” he said. “Whether that’s joining an existing platform or creating his new platform, there are a number of different options and a number of different meetings that they’ve been having on that front. Nothing is imminent on that.”

When pressed about whether Trump would join an existing platform, such as Parler, or create his own, Miller said: “All options are on the table. A number of things are being discussed. Stay tuned there because you know he’s going to be back on social media. We’re just kind of figuring out which avenue makes the most sense.”

Big Tech de-platformed Trump after the Jan. 6 Capitol siege, arguing that he was a “dangerous” threat because he “incited violence.”

Facebook said it has “no plans” to unblock Trump’s account, and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said his company’s ban of Trump is permanent.

Trump has long criticized tech companies, accusing them of censoring conservative views in an attempt to control political debate in the country.

“The tech companies are very dishonest about that and about free speech,” Trump said last year. “It could be a big problem for them at the appropriate time.”

Trump’s future plans are still up in the air.

Some close to the former president have said he plans to do something in media, whether that means starting his own television network of launching his own social media platform.

Others have said Trump is considering creating his own political party and using it to take down Republican politicians who opposed him during his final days in office.
