Former U.S. President Donald Trump feels happier outside of social media. Jason Miller, a senior adviser to the former U.S. leader, said this in a Feb. 6 interview published in the British newspaper The Sunday Times.
“The president said he feels happier now. He said it’s good to be away from social media, to not feel the influence of the closed world of hate that social media often becomes,” Miller said, referring to Trump, whose term expired Jan. 20.
He added that for the first time in years, he sees Trump “actually relaxed.”
According to the former White House adviser, former President Melania Trump’s wife, Melania Trump, is very happy about the situation.
“She said she likes it, that he’s much happier and that he’s having a lot more fun,” Miller was quoted as saying by the publication.
After the riots in Washington in early January, Facebook decided to take away the then-acting U.S. head of state Donald Trump’s ability to post on his Facebook and Instagram accounts until his term expires on Jan. 20. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg expressed the view that Trump “intends to use his remaining time in office as president to interfere with the peaceful and legitimate transition of power” to his election opponent. Later, however, the American head of state’s accounts became viewable again.
Twitter permanently blocked Trump’s account because of the unrest in Washington, D.C., citing his violations of rules as well as fears that he might try to provoke unrest.
The Sunday Times estimates that Trump has posted more than 34,000 tweets since the campaign began in 2015.
