Former President Donald Trump will make a social media comeback using his own platform according to one of his top advisers and is expected to “completely redefine the game.”
Appearing on Fox News show “MediaBuzz” on Sunday, Jason Miller, Trump’s spokesperson for his 2020 campaign, said the former Republican chief executive will be back on social media and that the new platform is expected to have “tens of millions” of users.

“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,” Miller said.
“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.”

“@JasonMillerinDC said President Trump will be ‘returning to social media in two or three months’ with ‘his own platform’ that will ‘completely redefine the game’ and attract ‘tens of millions’ of new users. #MediaBuzz,” the show tweeted on its social media page.
The former president was earlier banned by Twitter and Facebook, among — after the mostly left-leaning platforms claimed that Trump “incited violence” through his posts related to the January 6 chaos that ensued in Capitol Hill.
Other tech companies such as YouTube, Snapchat, Shopify and gaming platform Twitch also deplatformed the former US president.
Miller noted that he’s unable to provide more specifics about the Trump-led social media platform but he said that former President Trump has been conducting “high-powered meetings” at his Mar-a-Lago estate with various teams to pursue his venture.
He went on to reveal that “numerous companies” have already come forward to approach the former president regarding his plan.
“This new platform is going to be big,” Miller said, noting his expectations that the social media platform will draw “tens of millions of people.”
Prior to his account being banned, former President Trump is the second most-followed American politician on Twitter after former President Barack Obama. He has 88.6 million on the platform, and is also among Twitter’s top 10 accounts while the official Twitter account of the US President president has 33.1 million followers.
Democratic President Joe Biden currently has 9.3 million followers on his account.
Earlier, Trump already teased about putting up his own social media telling a podcast interview that he is “doing things having to do with putting our own platform out there” that will be coming out “soon.”
Meanwhile, in the social media platform Gab.com, the account reserved for ‘the 45th President of the United State of America’ @realdonaldtrump has over 2.1 million followers.
Trump’s new social media platform could get a boost from conservative users — who had repeatedly accused Silicon Valley tech firms and social media companies of “censoring” conservative views on their platforms.
Head of Instagram and former Facebook executive, Adam Mosseri, for example, earlier came public admitting that the social media giant has a bias and is “not neutral.”
“We’re not neutral,” Mosseri said of Facebook, which owns Instagram. “No platform is neutral, we all have values and those values influence the decisions we make.
We’re not neutral. No platform is neutral, we all have values and those values influence the decisions we make. We try and be apolitical, but that’s increasingly difficult, particularly in the US where people are more and more polarized.
