Trump has been in talks for months to return to social media since being banned in January
Next month marks a new phase in his political comeback with two rallies
His team is aiming to make a social media announcement on the Fourth of July
Possible platforms include CloutHub and FreeSpace
'I look forward to making people very happy,' he said in a new interview
President Donald Trump is aiming to launch his new social media platform to coincide with Fourth of July celebrations, six months after he was banned from Twitter, as his team plots a way back into the limelight.
As DailyMail.com revealed, Trump is expected to relaunch rallies with two open-air events in June followed by a rally around the date of July 3, offering a chance to build anticipation for his new venture.
People familiar with planning say Independence Day is only a rough target for a social media launch.
'These things have a habit of slipping but wouldn't that be a symbolic date to get back online,' said a former Trump administration official.
Someone else has their eye on the date. President Joe Biden is targeting July 4 for the nation to put COVID-19 behind it and celebrate 'independence from this virus.'
Meanwhile, Trump hinted again at a 2024 run and said his supporters would be happy with his decision.
'We've done a real job, and I look forward to making people very happy,' he said in an interview with WABC Radio's Rita Cosby.
Details of talks with platforms have seeped out in recent weeks and aides have teased an announcement to come.
