The 45th president has finally broken his silence to the media for the first time since leaving office on January 20th.
We knew it wouldn’t be long before former President Trump made a return to the public eye, and he certainly did not disappoint.
Although he did not specifically state what his next moves will be, he did not rule anything out.
In honor of late conservative talk radio show host Rush Limbaugh, who succumbed to lung cancer on Wednesday, Trump dominated the airwaves to share memories of him on Fox News, Newsmax, and One America News.
During a Fox News phone interview with Harris Faulkner, the 45th president warmly recalled awarding Limbaugh with the highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, for his dedication to this country, describing him as a brave, unique, and great man.
“He loved the country, he loved his wife, he loved his family, and he loved his fans… he’s irreplaceable,” the president said.

Later on Wednesday, Trump phoned into to Greg Kelly’s show on Newsmax to tell the world about Rush Limbaugh’s legacy.
After honoring the late radio host, the conversation digressed into a variety of political topics, including whether Trump will run for president again in 2024.
The former president told Kelly, “It’s too early to say,” whether he would run again, “but I see a lot of great polls out there. We have tremendous support.”
“I’m looking at poll numbers that are through the roof,” Trump continued, “I’m the only guy who gets impeached and my numbers go up,” he said.
Speaking of his mega-popularity with the people, the former president said since Twitter banned him, he understands the platform has become “very boring.”
“I understand on Twitter, it’s become very boring and millions of people are leaving. They’re leaving it because it’s not the same, and I can understand that,” Trump said.
With all options on the table, the 45th president also discussed possibly starting his own social media platform since he’s banned from Twitter, Facebook, and others.
“We’re negotiating with a number of people, and there’s also the other option of building your own site. I mean you can literally build your own site,” Trump said.
Former President Trump clearly has imminent plans for the future, and it’s only a matter of time before those plans are revealed.
Will Trump run for president again? Will he start his own version of Twitter?
We’ll find out soon as the president continues slowly integrating himself back into the media and making public appearances.
