Trump's social media comeback: ‘Bulls****er’ to ‘Orange Facebook’, trolls target former POTUS with bizarre names
'I am hoping for either Orange Facebook, Snapcheat, MyCellSpace, or Instasham,' a user commented
After Donald Trump's spokesperson Jason Miller confirmed on Sunday about the former President's return to social media with his own personal platform, speculations have been rife among internet users about its possible name. While trolls have targetted Trump with jibes about the upcoming social media portal, Trump supporters and Republicans have rejoiced after the decision, expressing their enthusiasm to start using it soon.
While revealing the news to Fox's Mediabuzz, Miller predicted that Trump's new platform will attract "tens of millions" of users and "completely redefine the game". Since Trump's permanent suspension from Twitter on January 8, 2021, followed by Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat, and others, rumor mills were abuzz that the billionaire former President will launch a platform of his own.
Now, it appears that the speculations were indeed true, as Trump is all set to make a comeback to the social media domain in another "two to three months".

From ‘Trumpet’ to ‘Bulls****er’
The announcement of Trump's new social media has prompted trolls to come up with hilarious suggestions for the name. Some of the most bizarre suggestions included - "Mein Space", an amalgamation of Adolf Hitler's autobiography 'Mein Kampf' and MySpace or 'Orange Facebook' and 'Instasham'.
"Overheard: Trump’s new social media platform to be named “Mein Space," wrote Star Trek actor George Takei. "Donald Trump announced he will launch his own social media platform that will "redefine the game." No word on the name of the site, but I am hoping for either Orange Facebook, Snapcheat, MyCellSpace, or Instasham," a user tweeted.
One user subtly accused Trump of propagating racism and wrote, "#Trump is creating his own social media platform. As logical connect to his love-hate relation with #Twitter, he is going to name it #Whiter. I hope u get it. #Racist"

When will Trump's social media platform be available?
The plans for the rollout of a brand new social media platform had been on the cards for Trump for quite a while. About a month ago, he reportedly claimed to his friends how he plans to set up a new social media venture and has hundreds of millions of dollars in backing for the same.
The financiers of Trump's plan reportedly includes Silicon Valley bigwigs motivated by fears of censorship and online 'cancel culture'. "There is also the option of building your own site because we have more people than anybody, so you can literally build your own site. But we were being really harassed on Twitter. They were putting up all sorts of flags, I guess they call them, they were flagging almost anything you said,” Trump gave a glimpse into his upcoming plan during an interview with Newsmax TV.
Speaking to MedizBuzz on Sunday, March 21, 2021, Trump's senior adviser and spokesman Jason Miller said, "I do think that we're going to see President Trump returning to social media, probably in about two or three months here, with his own platform."
"And this is something that I think will be the hottest ticket in social media, it's going to completely redefine the game, and everybody is going to be waiting and watching to see what exactly President Trump does," he added.
