Twitter CEO Elon Musk has opened the door for former President Donald Trump to return to the platform.
According to a report from The Daily Wire, Musk restored Trump’s account after posting an online poll asking if the former power tweeter should be allowed to return to the social media platform: 13 million votes were cast —and Twitter wants Trump back. But Trump says he does not “see any reason” to return now that he’s on TRUTH Social.
From The Daily Wire:
Trump made the remarks during a brief appearance at the annual leadership meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition when Matt Brooks, CEO of the Republican Jewish Coalition, mentioned to Trump that Musk was conducting a poll to see if he should let the former president back on Twitter.
“I don’t know if you’ve been following. Twitter is blowing up today: Elon Musk posted a poll that had over 13 million respondents so far, asking whether or not you should be reinstated on Twitter,” Brooks said. “My question to you is what do you think about Elon Musk buying Twitter? And if you are reinstated, will we see you back on Twitter again?”
“I don’t see any reason for it. There are a lot of problems in Twitter, you see what’s going on,” he said. “They may or may not make it but the problems are terrible. The engagements are negative. And you have a lot of bots and you have a lot of fake accounts.”
Trump claimed that his social media platform “is through the roof” and “doing phenomenally well.”
Earlier this year, Musk expressed tha t he felt Trump’s suspension was a misstep for the company.
“I think that was a mistake because it alienated a large part of the country, and did not ultimately result in Donald Trump not having a voice,” Musk said, adding that the decision was “morally bad.”
“That doesn’t mean that someone gets to say whatever they want to say,” Musk said. “If they say something that is illegal or destructive to the world, then there should be perhaps a timeout, temporary suspension or that particular tweet should be made invisible or have very little traction.”
