Business magnate Elon Musk said he would reverse Twitter’s ban on 45th President Donald Trump if he officially takes over the current left-wing social media platform.
“Permanent bans should be extremely rare and really reserved for accounts that are bots, or scam, spam accounts … I do think it was not correct to ban Donald Trump,” Elon Musk said.
“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,” he opined.
“I would reverse the permanent ban,” Musk announced, but added: “I don’t own Twitter yet. So this is not like a thing that will definitely happen, because what if I don’t own Twitter?”
Trump, however, has stated that he will not return to Twitter, instead touting his own social media platform, Truth Social. Video Below
Musk commented after his remarks were posted to Twitter, writing, “Important to listen to my full explanation”.
