Too little too late?

If Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter goes smoothly he says he would reverse former President Trump’s permanent ban from the platform.

Fox Business reports:

Musk made the comment during an appearance at FT Live’s “Future of the Car” conference on Tuesday. Twitter accepted his offer to purchase the company on April 25, but Musk says the deal will take another two to three months before it is finalized.

“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,” 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.”

“I would reverse the permanent ban,” Musk 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?”

Musk added that former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey agrees with him that Trump should not have been banned. Dorsey has yet to publicly respond to the claim, however.

However, Trump has previously said that he would not return to Twitter even if he was given his old account back.

Do you believe him?

  1. I think Trump will realize that although he has his own platform, he can reach many more voters on twitter

  2. Does it matter? The damage is already done. Before anything else, Twitter needs to purge all of the stooge-bots on the site. There are tens, perhaps hundreds of thousands of them, created to falsely inflate support for leftist trends, issues and politics.

  3. if i have millions of followers and one of the free platforms to voice this nation ill, i say Elon is correct. trump should be singing a new song having two platforms to put his voice to WE THE PEOPLE and those that were dead by these demorat party”s rats and cockroaches poison

  4. If Jack agreed that the President shouldn’t of been banned, then why didn’t he fight to keep him there? To little to late.
    If EM ends up with Twitter, the best thing that will happen is that he cans the current CEO all the way to where he came from. He’s not even an American.

  5. This piece of filth, Twitter should be taken down and all of their employees should be arrested for life. That is the only thing that would make me happy!

  6. In your post you say the following…….”“Permanent bans should be extremely rare and really reserved for accounts that are bots, or scam, spam accounts…”Sorry but I think that is not quite true. About (I am guessing) 3 or 4 years ago I got a notice I was kind of kicked off. Just bam and I could not use twitter. I must have said some thing really bad about the….hill da beast……So I just thought I would check and see the reason they kicked me off. That was yesterday 10 May 22. You know I can not/could not find the reason. Nothing was there too tell me my big….bo bo. So do you think the quoted item above is just a load of crap….I sure do, sorry to say. Dam but musk really has a problem in from of him to get the system clean. Good luck.
