With an audience of 74 Million who voted for him, “The Bully Pulpit" would be the highest-rated program on TV, even beating reruns of hot shows like “Shark Tank,” “The Apprentice” and “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit.” Originally, the idea for the show might have been to broadcast daily rallies for the 2024 election.

In the meanwhile, Trump is planning to make a triumphant return to  social media appparently the next few months,  "Trump is returning to social media with his own platform, spokeman says,CNN, 3/22/21
