Elon Musk Says He Would Lift Twitter Ban on Donald Trump

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Elon Musk yesterday said that once he gains control of Twitter, Trump will be welcomed back on Twitter. Trump is 58 and one in Republican primary contests. What do you think he'd be doing if he was back on Twitter? I don't even know if he wants to go back to Twitter. He says he doesn't. He's trying to boost truth social and he says that's where he will be, but listen to what Elon Musk, who now is about to own Twitter, told a reporter who asked the inevitable question about the 45th president of the United States. Are you planning to let Donald Trump back on? I think there's a general question of should was it Twitter have permanent bans? And I've talked with Jack Dorsey about this and he and I are of the same mind, which is that permanent advance should be extremely rare and really reserved for people where they're trying to for accounts that are once or spam scam accounts. Where there's just no legitimacy to the account at all. I do think that it was not correct. To ban Donald Trump, I think that was a mistake. Because an alienated a large part of the country and did not ultimately result in Donald Trump not having a voice. He is now going to be on truth social as will a large part of the right in the United States. This guy sounds very analytical and of course very smart.
