According to Politico on Thursday, Former President Donald Trump’s spokesman Jason Miller is reportedly leaving his current position to become the chief executive of an unidentified tech start-up. Reports suggest Trump is considering using one of the social media platforms owned by this company amid his indefinite Twitter and Facebook account bans.
Mr Miller will maintain his connections within Mr Trump’s networks. The spokesman was a senior advisor to Mr Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign and dealt with queries on Mr Trump’s behalf since the President skipped Joe Biden’s inauguration. Since January, Mr Miller has also assisted in creating Mr Trump’s statements for his ‘Save America’ Political Action Committee (PAC).
On Thursday, the Trump spokesman tweeted criticism of the mainstream media’s doting coverage of first lady Jill Biden compared to Melania Trump. Furthermore, he skewered US top medical advisor Dr Anthony Fauci and posted statements from Mr Trump criticising joint chiefs of staff and Mr Biden’s responses to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) virus.
Last week, Mr Trump took down his website, “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump,” only a month after its launch. The site had served as a platform for his statements. Mr Miller hinted these moves were a precursor to Trump joining a new media platform.
“Yes, actually, it is. Stay tuned!” read the Trump spokesman’s tweet.
