Trump to Start His Own Social Media Platform in Next Few Months, Says Aide
Donald J. Trump was a prolific user of the social media platform Twitter before and during his presidency. Following the capitol riots on Jan. 6, Twitter decided to ban the then-president for good, but according to an aide, getting the boot from one platform won’t stop him from communicating with his followers.
Trump senior adviser Jason Miller told Fox News’ “#MediaBuzz” on Sunday that he thinks “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, it’s going to completely redefine the game, and everybody is going to be waiting and watching to see what exactly President Trump does."
Not many details have been revealed regarding the new venture. Miller said he couldn’t divulge much more at this point but did say that Trump has been engaging in “high-powered meetings” with various teams at Mar-a-Lago. He also noted that “numerous companies” have approached Trump in regard to the platform.
Miller added that “this new platform is going to be big.” He predicts it will draw “tens of millions of people.”
The one thing that should concern the former-president and his team about this venture are the obstacles that will lie in the way of a smooth move forward. Parler found out about these obstacles the hard way after it was banned from being hosted on Amazon Web Services following the capitol riots. It took about a month for the platform popular among those on the right to find a new host to put it back online.
Likewise, Amazon, Google and Microsoft will surely not be running to Trump’s side to host his service, that’s for sure.
Anyone planning on dropping their Twitter and/or Facebook for this?
