Former President Donald Trump is reportedly preparing to launch his own social media platform in the next couple of months after hosting numerous meetings with companies at Mar-a-Lago.

An adviser to Trump made the revelation on Sunday during an interview on Fox News’s “MediaBuzz” with host Howard Kurtz.

“The fact the president’s been off of social media for a while because his press releases, his statements have actually been getting almost more play than he ever did on Twitter before,” adviser Jason Miller claimed. “I’m not sure if that’s because the length of them are a bit longer. [We] even had one reporter say that she thought it was much more elegant, the way that the president was able to communicate his thoughts and very much looked more presidential in that longer form.”

“But 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,” he continued. “And this is something that I think will be the the hottest ticket in social media. It’s going to completely redefine the game and everybody is going to be waiting and watching to see what exactly President Trump does. But it will be his own platform.”

Miller said Trump has had “a lot of high-powered meetings” at Mar-a-Lago with “numerous companies” about creating a platform that he hopes will bring in “tens of millions of people.”

TRANSCRIPT:

HOWARD KURTZ, MEDIABUZZ HOST: Donald Trump obviously has been booted off Twitter and Facebook and Instagram, which were a great megaphone for him. Does he plan to try to get back on social media, perhaps with some new outfit?

JASON MILLER, FORMER TRUMP CAMPAIGN SENIOR ADVISER: Howie, this is really interesting. The fact the president’s been off of social media for a while because his press releases, his statements have actually been getting almost more play than he ever did on Twitter before. I’m not sure if that’s because the length of them are a bit longer. [We] even had one reporter say that she thought it was much more elegant, the way that the president was able to communicate his thoughts and very much looked more presidential in that longer form. But 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. And this is something that I think will be the the hottest ticket in social media. It’s going to completely redefine the game and everybody is going to be waiting and watching to see what exactly President Trump does. But it will be his own platform.

KURTZ: So just to follow up, will this be a platform that the former president will create himself, will be working with another company? And obviously he’ll be starting from scratch. He won’t start out with 88 million Twitter followers.

MILLER: Well, I can’t go much further than what I was able to just share, but I can say that it will be big once he starts. There have been a lot of high-powered meetings he’s been having at Mar-a-Lago with some teams of folks who have been coming in. And I got to tell you, there have been — it’s not just one company that’s approached the president. There have been numerous companies. But I think the president does know what direction that he wants to head here. And this new platform is going to be big and everyone wants him. He’s going to bring millions and millions, tens of millions of people to this new platform.

KURTZ: We’ll watch that space.
