President Donald Trump is itching to lash out at Big Tech after many companies banned him from their platforms and could deliver public remarks at some point Monday but plans haven't been finalized, people familiar with the matter say.

(CNN)President Donald Trump is itching to lash out at Big Tech after many companies banned him from their platforms and could deliver public remarks at some point Monday but plans haven't been finalized, people familiar with the matter say.

Trump's suspension from Twitter in particular has enraged the President, who spent the weekend apoplectic about what he's determined is illegal censorship by the company.

Trump is expected to award the Medal of Freedom to Rep. Jim Jordan,R-Ohio, at the White House on Monday and to New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick on Thursday.

Between those events, aides are trying to convince Trump to hold events celebrating his legacy items like helping broker normalization agreements in the Middle East, rolling back regulations and taking a hard line on China.

Trump and some of his top aides spent part of the weekend phoning Republican allies in Congress to ask them to come out against a second impeachment, which Democrats are intent with pressing forward with.

Trump and his allies have argued the country doesn't support it.

In some conversations, Trump has told allies he does not believe he should be blamed for what happened at the US Capitol on Wednesday, saying he never intended for the crowd to turn violent.

Some of Trump's supporters were armed and ready for war: an Alabama man allegedly parked a pickup truck with 11 homemade bombs, an assault rifle and a handgun two blocks from the Capitol hours before authorities discovered it, according to federal prosecutors.

Trump appears no more aware of the consequences of his actions than on the day of the riot when he delighted in the mayhem.

Bunkered at the White House with an ever-shrinking circle of aides, he has offered no remorse for inciting the crowd and offered only a forced denunciation of their actions.
