If his acquisition of Twitter goes through, Elon Musk intends to remove the suspension of US President Donald Trump. The decision to stop Trump on the platform was wrong, Musk believes.
Elon Musk made the announcement during an interview at FT’s “Future of the Car” conference according to CNBC, which Omni was the first to report on.
“Permanent suspensions should be extremely rare and reserved for accounts that are cures, scam or spam accounts … I do not think it was right to stop Donald Trump,” said Tesla founder Musk.
According to Musk, the shutdown probably resulted in “a large part of the country being alienated”, while still failing to silence Trump.
– So I think this can end up being frankly worse than if you had a single forum where everyone can debate, he continued according to AP.
Trump: “Stays on Truth”
Twitter permanently shut down Trump from his favorite platform in January 2021 after the storming of the Congress building, due to “the risk of continued incitement to violence.” Trump then had over 80 million followers on the microblog.
Trump declared last month that he does not intend to return to tweeting, but intends to stick to his own media venture, the app Truth Social.
– I hope Elon buys Twitter because he will improve it and he is a good man. But I’m staying with Truth, Trump told Fox News at the time.
A spokesman for Trump did not immediately want to comment on Tuesday’s move from Musk.
Musk’s plans are causing concern in the White House
In the White House, Musk’s planned acquisition of Twitter has caused concern. Democrats and political strategists within the Democrats have feared that Trump and other Republicans would then be allowed to return to the platform, according to CNBC.
Elon Musk has recently made a bid of $ 44 billion to buy Twitter out of the stock market, which the board has accepted.
