Katty Kay: Trump’s Video Message Last Night Was an Effort ‘to Get His Twitter Account Back’

‘The best thing that can happen for the Democrats is that he stays off Twitter for the next few months’

KAY: "It’s not what Joe Biden wants to go through at the beginning of his term. It’s very hard to see how Chuck Schumer is not going to have to take up those articles when they are sent to him by Nancy Pelosi. We don’t know when that is going to be. The problem is twofold for Biden. First of all, there may not be the vote to convict, so you may go through all of this and not convict. And that then just gives Donald Trump more of a voice, his supporters more a voice. The second is, it means we are still talking about Donald Trump for the next few months. Donald Trump is still the focus of opinion. I think his big game last night was to try to get his Twitter account back. The best thing that can happen for the Democrats is that he stays off Twitter for the next few months. But talking about him and the trial, that’s not what Joe Biden wants to be doing. He has no choice, but that's not what he wants."
