Former U.S. President Donald Trump is set to making a big return to social media with “his own platform” in a couple of months, one of his senior advisers has said.
45 was banned from Twitter and suspended indefinitely on Facebook after protests at the US Capitol turned deadly on January 6. Twitter and Facebook immediately suspended Mr Trump thereby cutting him off from his over 88 million followers.
Trump would later be impeached for inciting the violence but acquitted when only seven Republican senators voted to convict.
Over the weekend, Jason Miller, Mr Trump’s senior adviser, speaking on Fox News stated that Mr Trump would be “returning to social media in probably about two or three months here, with his own platform.” According to him, he’s going to draw “tens of millions” of his followers and that it will be the”hottest ticket in the social media game even as big companies continue to meet with Trump for grand breaking deals. “It’s going to be big,” Miller remarked.
By implication, such platform will not have to rely on Google for download as the structure is going to be completely new.
