Former US President Donald Trump said he is working on his own social media platform to share news with his followers, as he was banned from major social media platforms such as Twitter.

“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 for Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe’s initial podcast ‘The Truth’ on Monday. “’ll be telling you pretty soon.”

Twitter, which was Trump’s most popularly used form of social media, permanently banned him in January. This action was taken after Trump broke the rules of the social media platform by glorifying violence and encouraging his supporters to march to the Capitol on January 6 to disrupt the counting of votes of the Electoral College for now-president Joe Biden.

Facebook also suspended Trump’s account pending a review by outside experts.

“I have tremendous options,” said Trump upon questions on what his own platform will entail.
