Former President Donald Trump says while many want him to return to traditional social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook, he feels he can get his message out just as well on his own Truth Social platform. 

"I've been invited back," Trump told the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show on Monday. "It's waiting, I guess. Twitter has close to 90 million people waiting. But I think I get a very strong word out on Truth, and there's something very beautiful about it."

The 45th president was suspended from Twitter, Instagram and Facebook two years ago before recently getting his accounts reinstated.

During the time of his suspension, Trump launched his own social media platform called Truth Social, naming former California GOP Rep. Devin Nunes as CEO of the parent company, Trump Media and Technology Group.

"They want me back so badly on Twitter," the former president said. "They want me back on Google. They want us back badly on Facebook."

But platforms such as Twitter are "boring," Trump scoffed.

"They do want us back badly," he said. "And they've made it open. But it's become boring. You know, it's boring. You have fake accounts. You have bots. TRUTH doesn't have that."

Trump also called out the Big Tech platforms that censored him. 

"They treated us very badly," he said. "You can't help but remember that. If you don't remember that, you're very foolish. And I don't like to be foolish. So we'll see what happens."
