Former President Donald Trump on Monday appeared unable to outline a strategy for getting his message out to the public days after he shut down a blog his team had hyped as a “beacon of freedom” and Facebook upheld its ban on him for at least two years.
Asked by Fox Business’ Stuart Varney whether he has a “plan” to spread his message given the bans, Trump said he has been able to get the word out with “press releases” and claimed he’s been getting the word out “very well.”
The former president then pivoted to criticizing social media executives for the bans as he offered no clear strategy for disseminating his message.
Trump called Big Tech leaders “bad” and “dangerous” people who “have to be stopped.”
“We don’t have free speech anymore,” Trump claimed, before Varney again pressed the former president on what he would “do” if these companies would not let him back on their platforms.
Trump said his team was “working” on a strategy “right now” even as he acknowledged things were not “the same.”
“We’ll see what happens,” Trump added.

Trump said he believed Big Tech had banned him because his voice is “very strong” and “powerful.”
