Former US President Donald Trump, suspended from Twitter, Facebook and other social media sites after the Jan.6 attack on Capitol Hill, plans to launch his own platform in two to three months, one of his top advisers told Fox News on Sunday.
Jason Miller, spokesman for Trump’s 2020 campaign, told the network that Trump would re-enter the social media space with a new platform of his own that would “completely redefine the game.”
Miller did not provide further details, and Trump Organization officials did not immediately comment.
Twitter last week said it would seek public opinion on when and how to ban world leaders, saying it was reviewing the policy and considering whether leaders should abide by the same rules as other users.
Twitter, Facebook and others have come under scrutiny for the way they handle the accounts of politicians and government officials after Trump’s ban for inciting violence.
Facebook, which indefinitely suspended Trump in January, has asked its independent oversight board to decide whether the ban should be upheld.
