Former President Donald Trump is mulling over re-emerging with a new social media platform by launching one of his own after being silenced by Big Tech.
Speaking on Breitbart News Saturday’s SiriusXM satellite radio on Feb. 6, Trump’s senior adviser Jason Miller said that the former president is considering launching his own platform in the near future to compete to Facebook and Twitter.
“I would expect that we will see the president re-emerge on social media,” said Miller, who was aboard Air Force One with Trump and his family flying from Washington to Florida on Jan. 20 when he ended his four-year term.
“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,” Miller said.
Miller added that the former president is considering both joining existing new platforms and launching his own social network.
“All options are on the table. A number of things are being discussed,” Miller said.
“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,” he continued.
Trump, during his presidency, frequently used Twitter and Facebook as his key portals to convey his information and communicate with the outside world. But these social media companies banned Trump’s account permanently or indefinitely from their platforms.
His own platform, once launched, is expected to attract at least 75 million American people who voted for him in 2020, the most votes a sitting president has ever got.
