There is a lot of speculation nowadays in response to the question of what US President Donald Trump will do after leaving the White House. One of these speculations is that Trump can launch his own media company.
This speculation is getting a lot of air amidst his fights with Fox News, Fox news considered Trump’s ‘favorite channel’. But Trump has targeted Fox News several times, along with other channels, during the recent presidential election.
According to CNN, Trump may harm the Fox brand and disenchant viewers if he launches a media company of his own. It is possible that the right-wing media map, which had been under Fox’s control for a long time, may be broken into pieces.
In its report, CNN says- Now the question is what can Trump do after (President) leaves office? In that case, the possibility of a Trump-branded streaming service is more than that of a “Trump TV” cable channel. But anything is possible: Trump might host a radio show, expand Trump’s existing webcasts, or have a licensing deal with a company like Newsmax.
