But Mr. Trump did not mention the name of President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr., he did not concede the election and he did not talk about Mr. Biden’s inauguration, which is to take place next week under extraordinary security because of the threats inspired by the Capitol breach. He also made no mention of the impeachment vote.
He did, however, denounce what he called restrictions of free speech, referring not just to social media platforms that have banned him but alluding to the assertion that Republican House members made to argue against his impeachment.
As long as he doesn't concede properly and holds out the illusion that the election was stolen, he isn't really doing anything to defuse the situation he caused. And his claims of being denied his free speech (along with the claims of other conservatives booted from social media) perpetuate grievance and victimhood, while ignoring the larger point that these jackasses as 1) violating the TOS of private companies' site, who don't owe them a platform and 2) fomenting actual crimes.
It is sad (isn't it?) to see that he has fallen out with his very expensive free lawyer Rudy Giuliani in the same article though,
