This came after social media giants, including Twitter and Facebook, banned the 45th President from their platforms amid widespread censorship of conservative voices.

Former President Donald Trump will be launching his own social media platform within a matter of months after being banned from Twitter earlier this year, Fox News reports.

In Trump's final month as president, Twitter permanently banned him for tweets that were deemed as "incitement of violence" in relation to the January 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol building by Trump supporters.

Host Howard Kurtz asked, "Donald Trump obviously has been booted off Twitter and Facebook and Instagram, which were a great megaphone for him". What few communications Trump has delivered since January 20 have been statements released through his "Office of the Former President" in Palm Beach County, Florida.

Trump's senior adviser Jason Miller told Fox News' #MediaBuzz that Trump is going to launch his own social media platform in "two or three months".

Trump's accounts were also suspended on Facebook, popular gaming platform Twitch and multimedia messaging app Snapchat.

European Union officials told member states recently that USA -made shots wouldn't be available to Europe in the short term. By April it will get another five million vaccine doses through global access mechanism Covax, UNICEF and other contracts.

Miller, a spokesperson for Trump's 2020 re-election campaign, wouldn't go into detail about the new platform but predicted the former president will attract "tens of millions" of new users to his online presence.

"There have been a lot of high-power meetings he's been having at Mar-a-Lago with some teams of folks who have been coming in, and.it's not just one company that's approached the president, there have been numerous companies".

Authorities have said 139 police officers were assaulted by Trump supporters wielding sledgehammers, baseball bats, hockey sticks, crutches and flagpoles. "He's going to bring millions and millions - tens of millions of people to this new platform", he suggested.

Miller also said that Trump will continue endorsing Republican candidates in the meantime.

There was talk then that Trump would seek to regain his previous access to voters by starting his own platform, and that was repeated by adviser Jason Miller at the weekend.
