Longtime senior Donald Trump adviser Jason Miller is taking over as chief executive officer of a tech startup company that could be used by the former president.

Miller’s company is currently developing a social media platform that is being considered for use by Trump. People familiar with the discussions stress that no final decision has been made by the former president about which platform he will use. Trump was kicked off major social media outlets, including Twitter and Facebook, following the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

The aide is expected to remain with Trump’s team, but not in a full-time, day-to-day role, according to a person familiar with the plans.

Miller is one of Trump’s longest-serving aides, having worked on his 2016 and 2020 campaigns in a senior capacity.

Since the end of the Trump administration, Miller had been serving as an on-the-record spokesperson for the former president, a role he is no longer expected to have. Trump has begun receiving interest from potential replacements to Miller.

Conservatives have been seeking out a new social media platform since Trump’s removal from Twitter and Facebook. Miller has spent recent days in conversation with top right-leaning figures about his new project. Other hires may soon be announced.

Miller was senior communications adviser on Trump’s 2016 campaign, similar to the position he had on Trump’s reelection effort.
