Donald Trump has claimed he prefers his less frequent press releases after being banned from Twitter in the wake of the Capitol riot in January.
Since leaving office, Trump has released a series of tweet-like press releases under the letterhead of The Office Of Donald J. Trump endorsing favorite candidates and reiterating his false claims that the 2020 election was faked.
He told Fox news host Laura Ingraham last night that he preferred his new way of communicating because ‘we are no longer limited by a certain number of characters’.
But he added that he was considering creating his own platform for his army of online followers.

Since his departure, Trump has issued a series of tweet-like press releases, including this one on March 10 claiming credit for the success of the US vaccine.
When asked about a possible new platform, Trump replied, “In my case, I have many options as we have over 200 million followers.”
But he added, ‘What I’m doing now, I almost like it better, I think I like it better.
‘We are no longer limited by a certain number of characters, we are no longer under the magnifying glass and frankly, you do it less, and you can do better.
‘I’m now sending statements from The Office Of … and the statements are being picked up by everyone. It actually works better now.
With that being said, we can open our own platform, but making statements … it affects everyone, it’s been very effective.
When asked if he found he had more time to spare without Twitter, he said: ‘Actually, it is very true. And I don’t have to be so careful about every word. If I put a comma in the wrong place, it becomes like he doesn’t know English very well.
‘You have a lot more time, and you can actually direct something and focus something on what is very important.
‘Twitter has become very boring. A lot of people are leaving Twitter, it has become very boring. We left, and many other people left. ‘
Trump’s ban from Twitter came along with permanent suspensions for allies including MyPillow supremo Mike Lindell (pictured) who backed up the false election fraud claims
Trump’s account was permanently suspended after he was accused of inciting a mob to raid Congressional halls in a doomed attempt to reverse the election results.
The official POTUS account had also deleted all of its tweets before handing it over to Joe Biden’s administration on January 20.
Other Trump allies banned from the site included attorney Sidney Powell, former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and MyPillow supremo Lindell.
Some conservatives were in favor of the self-proclaimed ‘free speech’ site Parler, but it too suffered a setback when web host Amazon pulled the plug in January.
Parler partially reappeared online later that month with the help of a Russian technology company.
Twitter has said Trump’s ban on the site is permanent and will remain in effect even if he returns to the front lines by running for the White House in 2024.
Trump has not promised whether or not he intends to do so, but polls have shown that he would be the Republican side’s favored candidate if he did.
Only one president, the late 19th-century Grover Cleveland, has served nonconsecutive terms in the White House.
Trump was banned from Twitter after he was accused of inciting a mob of his supporters to invade the Capitol on Jan. 6.
President Biden also had not said with certainty that he will run again in 2024, when he will be 81 years old.
But amid speculation that he is laying the groundwork for Kamala Harris to run in 2024, Biden said on Thursday that he was “ a great respecter of fate, ” but plans to flee.
‘My plan is to run for re-election. That’s my expectation, ”Biden said at his first formal press conference at the White House last night.
He later opposed a reporter’s suggestion that his plans for 2024 were final.
‘I said,’ That’s my expectation, ‘said Biden. ‘I have a great respect for fate. I have never been able to plan four and a half, three and a half years in advance. ‘
Biden seemed annoyed when asked if he expected Trump to join the Republican side within four years.
‘I don’t even think about it. I have no idea, ”Biden said, suggesting that Trump may not even be part of the Republican Party.
