The rise of social media has brought a lot of good to the world, but it can also take its toll in an emotionally draining sense, especially if you happen to be one of the most loved and most hated presidents in American history.
According to the New York Post, former President Donald Trump no longer has access to the large social media platforms that defined his career and messaging style, but one of his former campaign aides reported that Mr. Trump is actually “happier” and feeling much better now that he’s not tethered to the social networks that banned him.
Former top aide Jason Miller revealed over the weekend that Trump is feeling good now that Twitter and Facebook are in his rear-view mirror.
“The president has said he feels happier now than he’s been in some time,” Miller said, adding that “He’s said that not being on social media, and not being subject to the hateful echo chamber that social media too frequently becomes, has actually been good.”
Miller admitted that part of that refreshing, happy feeling could be the fact that he’s no longer holding the most stressful, mentally-taxing job in the entire world, but added that former First Lady Melania Trump verified that she’s enjoying the company of a happier husband.
“That’s something the First Lady [Melania] has backed up as well. She has said she loves it, that he’s much happier and is enjoying himself much more,” Miller said.
According to an exclusive report from Breitbart, the former president doesn’t appear to want to take too long of a break from getting his message out on social media, as Miller hinted in an interview with the outlet that Trump has not ruled out the launch of his own social network in the near future.
When pressed on the matter, Miller didn’t give specifics and offered a somewhat vague answer, but one that definitely sounds like Trump will be back on social media at some point.
“All options are on the table,” Miller said. “A number of things are being discussed. Stay tuned there because you know he’s going to be back on social media. We’re just kind of figuring out which avenue makes the most sense,” Miller said.
