Former US President Donald Trump will launch his own social network in the next three months. The information was released by the billionaire’s senior advisor, Jason Miller, to Fox News.
“I really think we’re going to see Trump come back to social media and this will be the hottest ticket on the internet. It’s going to completely redefine the game, and everyone’s going to be waiting and watching to see what exactly Trump does,” says Miller. According to him, the former president is participating in “intense meetings” with several companies for the launch of the project.
Details on how the social network will work have yet to be released, but Miller says the platform should attract “millions of people.”
banned from social media
Trump has been permanently banned from Twitter – the channel he used the most to chat with his followers – after the events at the Capitol on January 6th. On the day of the invasion, the Republican used his account to ask the Protestants to return home. However, he again stated that the elections had been rigged.
It was the first time that a political figure in the country was excluded from the network. The company released a statement explaining the reasons for the decision. “After a detailed analysis of recent tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them — specifically about how they are being received and interpreted in and out of Twitter — we permanently suspend the account due to the risk of further incitement to violence”
Other platforms like Facebook, Snapchat and YouTube followed the same path and blocked the ex-president’s account.
