Donald Trump's new social media site will be up and running in 'three to four months'

DONALD TRUMP'S brand new social media platform will be online in around three or four months, according to a former adviser of his.

In January, Trump was booted off Twitter in response to his perceived role in inciting the Capitol riots which resulted in the deaths of five people, including one police officer.

Facebook, Instagram and YouTube swiftly followed suit, handing out permanent bans to the former president, siphoning off his ability to communicate efficiently with his supporters.

Ever since, rumours have been swirling that Trump would be setting up a brand new social media platform, not only to rival the likes of Twitter and Facebook, but also to offer users the chance to sign up to a site where there's no threat of being 'cancelled'.

Corey Lewandowski, a former senior adviser and campaign manager for Mr Trump, told Newsmax that the new platform "will debut in three to four months".

"We're going to have a platform where the president's message of America First is going to be able to be put our to everybody, " he said.

"There'll be an opportunity for other people to weigh in and communicate in a free format without fear of reprisal or being cancelled."

Lewandowski's words follow Trump's comments earlier this month that he and his team were working on setting up a new social media site.

"I'm doing things having to do with putting our own platform out there that you'll be hearing about soon," Trump said in an interview with Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe.
