Trump advisor says return to social media will happen within months on his own platform

Trump had himself mentioned making his own social media platform after the bans. "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". But I think the president does know what direction that he wants to head here.

Trump was banned from Twitter and Facebook following the US Capitol Hill riots on January 6 during which hundreds of Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol building, leaving five people dead, including a police officer. What few communications Trump has delivered since January 20 have been statements released through his "Office of the Former President" in Palm Beach County, Florida.

Host Howard Kurtz asked, "Donald Trump obviously has been booted off Twitter and Facebook and Instagram, which were a great megaphone for him". The bans sparked a public debate over the appropriate role of moderation and censorship on major social media platforms.

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'.

Mr Miller provided no further details, and no comment was immediately available from officials with the Trump Organisation. There have been numerous companies. "Trump always thrives on having an audience and being able to disrupt the media cycle", said Christopher Galdieri, an associate professor of politics at Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire.

Miller also said that Trump will continue endorsing Republican candidates in the meantime.

But Miller said Trump had been hard at work.

Trump would "bring millions and millions, tens of millions of people to this new platform".
