Trump spokesman Jason Miller is leaving his post to helm tech start-up that could become ex-president’s new social media platform

  • Miller served as Trump’s spokesman during post-presidency and advised his reelection campaign
  • He also advised Trump in 2016 
  • Expected to maintain role as a Trump advisor 
  • He is leaving to join a tech start-up company
  • Company said to own social media platform under ‘consideration’ by Trump
  • Trump scuttled his ‘From the Desk of’ web site
  • He was banned from Twitter and Facebook after Jan. 6th Capitol riot
  • Miller has used his own social media presence to blast out Trump statements 

Jason Miller, who served as former President Donald Trump’s spokesman since he left the White House, is leaving his post to join an unidentified tech start-up firm. 

Miller will become the CEO of the company – which Trump is reportedly considering for his own use. The former president has been hunting for a new media platform amid ongoing bans by Twitter and Facebook. 

Miller will continue to operate within Trump’s circle, a source told DailyMail.com, adding that there isn’t an immediate start date or official announcement. The unidentified company owns one of the social media platforms Trump is said to be considering for his next move.

 Politico reported the move late Thursday Thursday.

Miller has fielded queries on Trump’s behalf since Trump skipped Joe Biden’s inauguration and decamped first to Mar-a-Lago then to his private club in Bedminster, New Jersey. 

He also served as a senior advisor to Trump’s unsuccessful 2020 reelection campaign. Since January, he has helped develop statements Trump fired off from his ‘Save America’ PAC that frequently skewered President Joe Biden, in a break with tradition for recent ex-presidents.

Miller has also kept up his own active role on Twitter, even with his boss prevented from using the platform. 

On Thursday he tweeted out criticism over media coverage of first lady Jill Biden compared to Melania Trump, and blasted infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci – while using the platform to push out printed statements from Trump blasting the joint chiefs of staff and Joe Biden’s handling of the ‘China virus.’

Last week, Trump scuttled his web site, ‘From the Desk of Donald J. Trump,’ which had served as the vehicle for his statements, just a month after launching it, in a move that Miller hinted presaged additional moves. Trump has long eyed his own media platform or acquiring one.

On June 2, he retweeted a post that it could be a precursor for Trump joining another media platform. ‘Yes, actually, it is. Stay tuned!’ he wrote.
