"In a response typical of those decrying Donald Trump’s Twitter ban, his namesake son tweeted: “Free speech is dead and controlled by leftist overlords.” Nothing performative about that reaction, eh?
The fact that the current president’s message is being “controlled” by anyone other than himself is laughable. There are other official White House and presidential Twitter feeds to get policy points out, plus a communications team. If Trump convened a press conference, you would have the White House press pack in attendance – and it would be considered by all the major networks for national broadcast.
Trump is one of the most powerful people in the world, at least for the next 10 days; if he wants something put out there, millions will be able to see or hear it. And will that influence instantly disappear once he leaves the Oval Office? Of course not, however much some may wish it would. There is a well-trodden path for former presidents towards book deals, national interviews and coverage of their next steps".
