President Donald Trump definitely does live rent free in the minds of those on the left.
As we reported earlier, during an interview on Newsmax, Trump dropped hints about a social media move, saying that he was “in negotiations” on some things, presumably discussions about potentially making a move on something already in existence. He also said the other option was to create a new platform of his own noting the huge following that he had across multiple social media platforms. “We’re negotiating with a number of people, and there’s also the other option of building your own site,” President Trump said.
So suddenly Bill Gates is talking about existing social media platforms at some point allowing Trump back on.
Interesting timing. The Microsoft founder was asked about Trump during an interview on Thursday on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.” Gates was asked by Andrew Sorkin if he would reinstate Trump if he were on Facebook’s oversight board. Gates indicated he would.

“I think at some point he will probably be allowed back on, and should be allowed back on,” Gates said. “It’s weird when you’re saying the election is stolen without any facts there and how corrosive that is. But I bet they’ll find a way to let him back on.”
Yes, it is weird that Hillary Clinton who said the election was stolen is still on Twitter. Funny how that works. Yes that claim plus the dossier her team paid for and the Russia collusion claim was extremely corrosive for the past four plus years. Where has there ever been any justice for what she did or condemnation from the media of the division that she caused with her efforts to grab power?
But it sounds like Big Tech might be warming toward the idea of having Trump back on existing social media platforms. Are they so worried are they about the power of a Trump social media platform that they’d rather have him back on their platforms so they don’t have to deal with him as a competitor?
Facebook had suspended him indefinitely and Twitter called it a permanent banning.
But it sounds like Trump isn’t standing by, waiting for them to let him back on so if there’s a move afoot to let him back on, sounds like he’s decided he doesn’t want them. He’s reportedly relishing the time to sit back and hold them in suspense a bit, in addition to the social media moves he’s exploring behind the scenes.
Meanwhile it’s clear the media can’t let him go. What would they do if they couldn’t comment on him? They’re a bit like addicts going through a withdrawal, they just can’t quit him.
