Trump is planning to launch his own social-media platform in the next few months, aide Jason Miller says

Former President Donald Trump is planning to launch his own social-media platform within the coming months, longtime Trump adviser Jason Miller said during a Sunday appearance on Fox News "Media Buzz."

"I do think we're going to see President Trump returning to social media in probably about two or three months here with his own platform," Miller said Sunday. "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 it will be his own platform," he added.

Miller declined to give specifics about what such a social network would entail but told "Media Buzz" anchor Howard Kurtz that the former president had had "a lot of high-powered meetings" at Mar-a-Lago, his residence since leaving Washington, with "numerous companies" interested in helping him launch the platform. 

Trump was barred from most social media platforms, including Facebook and Twitter, following his incitement of the January 6 riot at the US Capitol that left five people dead.

Since his ban, Trump, once known tweeting hundreds of times in a single day, has resorted to releasing short statements through his office that mimic tweets, especially when they're shared on the platform by reporters and political consultants.

Trump planned to bring "tens of millions" of new users to the platform, said Miller, who worked on Trump's 2016 bid for the White House and as a senior adviser to Trump during his failed 2020 reelection campaign.

The former president's office did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
