Elon Musk Says He Would Reverse the Twitter Ban on Donald Trump

Not too long ago, the liberal board of directors at Twitter shot down the possibility that Elon Musk could reverse the company ban on President Donald Trump.

When Musk only owned 9% of the company worth roughly $3 billion, Twitter responded to the issue by saying, “Policy decisions are not determined by the board or shareholders, and we have no plans to reverse any policy decisions.”

However, now that Twitter has accepted Musk’s $44 billion offer to purchase the company, Musk said, “I would reverse the permanent ban.”

“I don’t own Twitter yet,” he added. “So this is not like a thing that will definitely happen, because what if I don’t own Twitter?”

“Permanent bans should be extremely rare and really reserved for accounts that are bots, or scam, spam accounts,” he continued. “I do think it was not correct to ban Donald Trump,” 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,” Musk explained.

Left-wing “fact-checkers” are regularly accused of censoring the opinions and speech of Americans on Twitter and Facebook. Twitter recently suspended multiple accounts, including satire outlet Babylon Bee and Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

Once Musk gained some control, users immediately suggested that the company reinstate President Donald Trump’s account.

Musk also argued that former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey agrees with him on this issue that Trump should not have been banned.

“Dorsey has yet to publicly respond to the claim,” Fox News noted.

Despite this possibility, Trump himself has said he will not return to Twitter.

Trump has launched his own social platform called Truth Social.

“I am not going on Twitter, I am going to stay on TRUTH,” Trump said. “I hope Elon buys Twitter because he’ll make improvements to it, and he is a good man, but I am going to be staying on TRUTH.”

Musk blasted the left-wing social media platform for failing to allow for free speech. Twitter notoriously banned President Donald Trump from using the platform back in 2020.

Musk asked his followers to take an informal poll: “Free speech is essential to a functioning democracy. Do you believe Twitter rigorously adheres to this principle?”

“Is a new platform needed?” he asked. Take a look:

Some people suggest that Musk should simply buy Twitter:

An overwhelming number of Americans responded that Twitter is failing to adhere to the basic principle of free speech.

Musk’s poll received responses from 2 million people. It showed that 70.4% of people believe think Twitter is doing a bad job.
