A former senior adviser to Donald Trump is starting a new social-media platform, but the former president isn’t involved and has no plans to join, according to a person familiar with the situation.

Jason Miller, who played roles in Trump’s presidential campaigns and worked with him after he returned to private life, is chief executive of the closely held Gettr USA that’s official launching the platform on July 4, according to a release. The platform, now available in app stores in beta versions, bills itself as an unbiased social network.
