Former US President Donald J Trump’s former senior advisor Jason Miller has started a social media site called GETTR, he said on Thursday.
GETTR, a Twitter-style platform with posts and trending topics, advertised itself on the Google and Apple app stores as “a non-bias social network for people all over the world.” It was first reported by Politico.
Miller has for months teased the Trump team’s plans to start a new social media platform, after the former president was blocked by a slew of sites following the Jan 6 protest where his supporters, along with agitators stormed the Capitol building. However, Trump does not have a verified account on GETTR.
Miller told Fox News in an interview that he hoped Trump would join but that the former president was considering a number of options. He said Trump was not funding the platform.
Trump, who recently shut down a short-lived blog on his website, joined video platform Rumble last weekend ahead of his campaign-style rally in Ohio.
A spokeswoman for Donald J Trump did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
