Miller, along with former Trump campaign spokesperson Tim Murtaugh, quietly launched a new social media network aimed at conservatives on Thursday. The site, called GETTR, is financially backed by a Chinese fugitive billionaire who’s an associate of pardoned Trump strategist Steve Bannon.
While there was immediate speculation that GETTR could finally be the long-awaited alternative to Twitter and Facebook that Trump has promised since he was booted from all major social media platforms following the Capitol riots, it appears that the ex-president’s interest in the project is so far nonexistent.
As of Thursday evening, Trump had yet to create a profile on the Twitter-like site. And according to Bloomberg senior White House reporter Jennifer Jacobs, the former president doesn’t plan to join the site—or have any other financial stake or participation in it. “Apparently the ex president still has plans for a separate platform. Unclear what exactly,” she tweeted.
