Former U.S President Donald Trump is building his own social media website, longtime advisor Jason Miller who was Trump’s spokesperson during the 2020 campaign, told Fox News on Sunday.
“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 – and this is something that I think will be the hottest ticket in social media,” Miller said during an interview with Fox News ‘MediaBuzz’ host Howard Kurtz on Sunday morning.
He added that Trump’s return will be with “his own platform” that will attract “tens of millions” of new users and “completely redefine the game.”
Miller said during his appearance on Fox News that the former president has been approached by numerous companies and is in talks with teams about the new platform.

“This new platform is going to be big,” Miller said on Sunday. “Everyone wants him and he’s going to bring millions and millions — tens of millions — to this platform.”
The former president was a prolific Twitter user before and during his presidency until he was permanently banned by Twitter and other social platforms, such as Facebook, following the US Capitol incident on January 6 where hundreds stormed the US Capitol building, leaving five people dead, according to CNN.
“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them — specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter — we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” Twitter said in a January 8 statement.
Twitter executives said in February that the ban would stand.
“When you’re removed from the platform, you’re removed from the platform,” Twitter CFO Ned Segal told CNBC on February 10. “He was removed when he was president and there’d be no difference for anybody who’s a public official once they’ve been removed from the service.”
