DONALD Trump is planning a spectacular return to social media after Facebook and Twitter booted him off their platforms, his aide says.
The former president had his accounts suspended after his supporters stormed the Capitol building on January 6 following his “stop the steal” rally protesting Joe Biden's election win.
Now, after two months of social media silence, Trump's senior advisor Jason Miller said the conservative firebrand will return to a “non mainstream” platform by the Spring ahead of a reported 2024 White House run.
He told Mediate's The Interview podcast that Trump has had conversations "with both existing social media platforms and also potentially with some brand new platforms".
Miller believes that the billionaire's return to social media will have a big impact.
anything that he touches is going to be big
He said: “We're not that far off from seeing President Trump return to social media.
"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."
Speaking about a potential return to Twitter or Facebook, Miller said he "would never shut the door completely on anything".
He continued: "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 be accepting public feedback on Trump's suspension.
And according to The Verge, a decision will be announced by Facebook within 90 days of Jan. 21.
However, Twitter chiefs said last month that Trump's ban is permanent even if he does run in 2024.
The 45th President of the United States made his first public appearance last month at the CPAC convention.
But Miller said Trump's low profile since January has simply been a "temporary stopgap."
He said: “One of the things we were discussing the other day is he's actually had a lot more pickup from his once every couple of day-press releases that he's put out than he did over a lot of his tweets by the end of the administration."
