Donald Trump’s social media platform “will debut in three to four months,” Corey Lewandowski, a former Trump 2016 campaign manager and 2020 senior adviser, told Newsmax TV’s “Saturday Agenda.”
“What we’ve seen from big tech and the cancel culture is if you don’t agree with their philosophy, they’re going to cancel you, and we’re going to have a platform where the president’s message of America First is going to be able to be put out to everybody and there’ll be an opportunity for other people to weigh in and communicate in a free format without fear of reprisal or being canceled,” Lewandowski told host Joe Pinion.
“It’s going to be an interactive communication tool whereby the president will be able to post things to it and people will be able to repost and communicate directly with him,” he said.
Trump social media platform will not rely on Amazon
Lewandowski added: “The platform that the president is building is not going to rely on Amazon or Amazon servers. It’s going to be completely built from scratch from the ground up and that’s going to give him the opportunity to control, not only the distribution of it, but also participate in it. I mean that in a positive way. And that is something that the president has been working on for a long time now.”
Earlier, on a March 22 podcast, Trump said he’s working on his own and would have more details soon.
“I’m doing things having to do with putting our own platform out there that you’ll be hearing about soon,” Trump said in an interview for Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe’s podcast “The Truth.”
Twitter “did us a favor,” with the ban, Trump told Newsmax TV’s “Greg Kelly Reports” last week.
“We have a lot of options and something will happen with social media, if I want it to happen,” Trump told host Greg Kelly on Monday.
A week ago, Trump adviser Jason Miller said Trump would return to social media in “about two to three months.”
“I do think that 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’s going to be waiting and watching to see what exactly President Trump does, but it will be his own platform.”
Trump picked Lewandowski to run a super PAC as part of his forthcoming post-presidential political efforts, Politico reported in February.
