Twitter may have thought that they silenced President Donald Trump when they permanently banned him from their platform in January.
But not for long.
According to senior adviser Jason Miller, Trump will be making a return to social media — on a platform of his own — that, according to Miller, will “completely redefine the game.”
Miller shared the news with Howard Kurtz on Fox’s “Media Buzz” that it would be coming in about two to three months.

Miller said he thought Trump’s statements, because they were fewer and longer, were almost getting more play than when he had been posting on Twitter.
”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. “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,” Miller said.
Miller said that the president had been in numerous discussions at Mar-a-Lago, that multiple companies were interested but Trump knew in what direction he wanted to go. “This new platform is going to be big. Everyone wants him. He’s going to bring millions and millions – tens of millions – to this new platform,” Miller exclaimed. Trump had 88.6 million followers when he was suspended from Twitter.
It might indeed “completely redefine the game” if the right is able to have more non-restricted social media platforms that aren’t subject to being shutdown by leftist-oriented Big Tech. The right needs to work harder at breaking that stranglehold that the left has over most of social media. Because with that stranglehold comes control and the ability to dictate what information is ‘allowed’ and what will be shut down because it doesn’t serve the Democratic cause/narrative. We saw how critical that was both before and after the election with the media dispensing with any pretext of fairness and flat out impeding things from being spread, like the Hunter Biden story in October.
Folks on the right have been salivating for such a move from him.
But if that goes, don’t expect Trump to stop there, as he expands his media brand, expect him to broaden out into other media and video areas that can’t be controlled. By booting Trump from its platforms, they’ve freed him to challenge them and take their users away and if he’s really able to pull that off, conservative outlets could have a bullet-proof vehicle for sharing information that Big Tech can’t stop.
