WEBFI-TECH-How Trump’s social media ban may be helping him

A Wall Street Journal article suggests former President Donald Trump is benefiting from being banned by major social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook, which suspended his accounts after the January 6 assault on the Capitol due to his continued false claims that the 2020 election was stolen. Wall Street Journal reporter Michael Bender joins CBSN’s Elaine Quijano to discuss the impact.

    Donald Trump switched from Democrat to Republican in 1987. He went from Republican to Reform Party in 1999. He switched from Reform Party to Democrat in 2001. Trump switched from Democrat to Republican in 2009. Trump is a cult leader now and his cult is programmed to follow the Republican Party because it is the only Party. The Republican Party represents all that is good and the Democrats represent all that is evil. This is typical cult behavior. Trump is not just a cult leader, he is also a narcissist/sociopath/psychopath and he is dangerous. We are lucky he did not push the button and destroy the planet when he was in office.

    This is supposedly a creditable unbiased network referring to him as the current president as the headline. English is my only language.

    Trump already released his first message on his platform: “man, person, TV, CamRa”

  • John Rue on January 11, 2022

    Interesting that she as a reporter did not say President Trump. No respect.

  • AlmostSober on January 11, 2022

    I don’t care. It’s pure mental health bliss not hearing his tweets on the news. Please stop giving him free coverage. Some with Clinton. Don’t give either of them oxygen. Do not want.
