Donald Trump ‘will return to social media in two or three months with his own platform and completely redefine the game’, advisor reveals
Miller, who was a spokesperson for Trump’s 2020 campaign, said on the show Sunday that Trump will reenter the social media space in two to three months with a new platform that will ‘completely redefine the game.’
Trump was an infamous Twitter user before and during his presidency, but the social media platform shuttered his account and permanently banned him from posting after Jan. 6, when Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol building.
‘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 Jan. 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 Feb. 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.’
Trump was accused of inciting the violence and discord during a speech to a crowd on the National Mall shortly before the rioting began. Trump exhorted his supporters to march on Congress, where politicians were meeting to his Democratic opponent’s victory.
‘If you don’t fight like hell you’re not going to have a country anymore,’ Trump said in the speech. The quote was used in Trump’s impeachment trial resulting from the riot, in which Democrats accused the former president of using the 70-minute speech as a call to insurrection.
Trump nonetheless became the only U.S. president to be impeached twice by the U.S. House of Representatives. The Senate acquitted him in 2020 on a charge of attempting to pressure Ukraine into smearing Biden during the presidential campaign.
