Jason Miller, former President Donald Trump’s senior advisor, confirmed the rumors during a Fox News appearance on Sunday that Trump will launch his own social media platform within two or three months.
“I do think we’re going to see President Trump returning to social media and probably about two or three months here with his own platform,” Miller reported. “This is something that I think will be the hottest ticket in social media.”
Miller declined to reveal details about the new social network. The response comes after Trump was removed from many social media platforms after the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol.

The former president was especially fond of Twitter, sometimes posting dozens of times per day. Trump currently releases short statements through his office that are followed by reporters and political influencers.
Twitter, Facebook and other social media networks have received criticism for their removal of Trump and other conservative voices. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has sought to bring legal action against Big Tech companies that silence conservative candidates.
Miller also noted Trump will continue to endorse Republican candidates, including a new announcement on Monday.
“Pay attention to Georgia tomorrow, on Monday,” Miller said. There’s a big endorsement that’s coming that’s going to really shake things up in the political landscape in Georgia. It’s big, it’s coming tomorrow, and just be sure to tune in.”
Trump’s new social network will certainly excite conservative and fuel headlines. The effort also adds to ongoing speculation of a 2024 presidential run by the former president, an announcement he has shared will not come until after the 2022 midterm elections.
