Former US President Donald Trump will soon return to social media with his own platform,” an adviser has said.

“I do think that we’re going to see President Trump returning to social media in probably about two or three months,” Jason Miller told Fox News in an interview Sunday.

Miller said the new platform being planned “will be the hottest ticket in social media” and would “completely redefine the game,” although he gave no further details.

Mr Trump was suspended from Twitter and Facebook after deadly riots at the US Capitol in Washington DC in January.

The riots saw five people including a police officer killed, and shook the foundations of American democracy.

Days later, Twitter said Mr Trump’s account was “permanently suspended… due to the risk of further incitement of violence.”
