Former President Trump plans to return to social media by the end of the spring, probably on a non-mainstream platform, said his senior advisor, Jason Miller, on Saturday.
Speaking on an episode of Mediate’s “The Interview” podcast, Miller said the Trump team has been having ongoing conversations “with both existing social media platforms and also potentially with some brand new platforms.”
“We’re not that far off from seeing President Trump return to social media,” Miller said. “I think it will be on some new platforms that maybe you haven’t seen before, and it will be a tectonic plate shift in the world of social media because anything that he touches is going to be big, so I think there’s going to be some excitement on that front.”
When asked if Trump thinks the mainstream platforms would invite him back, Miller said he would “would never shut the door completely on anything” but that the likelihood is low.
“I’m sure Jack [Dorsey] will probably shut the door completely to a Twitter return and Zuckerberg…we’ll see what happens in April with this advisory board review from Facebook.”
The Facebook Oversight Board announced in January that it would begin accepting public feedback on Facebook’s suspension of former President Trump.
The board said it would issue a decision on Trump’s fate within 90 days of January 21.
Meanwhile, Twitter executives said in February that Trump’s ban is permanent and will stay in place even if he runs for the White House again.
