According to the Wall Street Journal, Elon Musk is dismayed that Donald Trump is still banned from Twitter.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk made an offer to buy Twitter for $44 billion, which the platform’s board of directors accepted.
The previous president, like the internet billionaire himself, was notorious for his inflammatory tweets.
Elon Musk is upset that former President Donald Trump is still banned from Twitter, according to persons who recently spoke with him, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Banned users have been asking when their accounts would be restored since Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk made an offer to buy Twitter for $44 billion, which the company’s board of directors accepted on April 25.
In an interview, Trump, on the other hand, stated that he will not be returning to Twitter. Instead, he’d join TRUTH social, his own new social network.
“I hope Elon buys Twitter because he’ll improve it and he’s a fantastic man,” he remarked, “but I’m going to stay on TRUTH.”
“In the end, no, I’m not going back to Twitter,” Trump continued.
Trump has kicked off the platform in January 2021, after a mob of his followers stormed the US Capitol in an attempt to prevent the certification of the 2020 election.
His tweets had regularly broken Twitter’s rules against promoting disinformation, inciting violence, and providing false information regarding the COVID-19 pandemic during the COVID-19 epidemic.
During their tenure on Twitter, both the former president and Musk have authored a number of contentious comments.
- Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida, is a far more dangerous politician than Donald Trump!
- Musk Sold $8.5 Billion in Tesla Stock After Agreeing to a $44 Billion Transaction With Twitter!
- Musk Isn’t Permitted to Criticise Twitter While Attempting to Acquire It. In Any Case, He’s Going to Do It!
Musk considers himself a “free speech absolutist” and believes he can repair Twitter. He has previously threatened to sue bloggers for unfavorable coverage and fired employees for disagreeing with him, as Katherine Tangalakis-Lippert of Insider noted.
Insider contacted Trump’s post-presidential office but did not receive a response right away.
“We’re taking in millions of people,” Trump said, “and what we’re finding is that the response on TRUTH is far better than being on Twitter.”
“Twitter has bots and phony accounts,” he added, “and we’re doing everything we can to combat them.”
