Donald Trump issued a warning to Big Tech giants that banned him from their platforms in the aftermath of the 2020 election: He will not be silenced.
“Watch what I do to Big Tech this week,” he warned in an interview with Newsmax’s Rob Finnerty and Ric Grenell on Friday morning. Watch:
“Do you think it’s time to break up Big Tech?” former acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grennell asked Trump.
“Well, watch next week, because you will see me do something about Big Tech,” he responded. “And people have wanted me to do it a long time.”
“And it won’t be too surprising,” he continued. “They don’t love me to talk about it early. But watch what I do next week on Big Tech. I think you will find it very interesting.”
It is unclear exactly what Donald Trump was referring to in the interview, but it may be the announcement of a long-anticipated social media platform to rival Big Tech giants.’
In March, it was reported that Trump is creating a new social media platform and ‘it will be ready in 2-3 months,’ according to Jason Miller, who was a spokesperson for Trump’s 2020 campaign.
It will be his own platform” that will “completely redefine the game” and attract “tens of millions” of new users, Miller told Fox News’ Media Buzz.
In February, Miller, a senior adviser to the former president, revealed the actions that Trump is planning in an interview on Breitbart News Saturday on SiriusXM 125, aka the Patriot Channel.
“I would expect that we will see the president reemerge on social media,” Miller said when asked what Trump plans to do next. “Whether that’s joining an existing platform or creating his new platform, there are a number of different options and a number of different meetings that they’ve been having on that front. Nothing is imminent on that.”
It appears that timeline is a lot more “imminent” than originally planned.
