Donald Trump might be back in the Twittersphere soon enough — that is, if Elon Musk‘s mega deal to buy Twitter closes … ’cause the guys says 45’s ban was BS.
The Tesla chief — and soon-to-be new Twitter owner — signaled DT might be back on the bird app during a virtual chat at a car summit … saying he would reverse the permanent ban if the decision was up to him, and if very well could be in a matter of weeks.
EM called the move a “morally bad decision” in the first place, going on to say he saw it as “foolish in the extreme.”
His rationale is interesting … Elon essentially argued that Trump should be allowed to exist in the de facto town square, rather than allowing him and/or his loyal followers to foment/fester elsewhere — which is a bit of a different POV than his free speech one.
Elon says, “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. So I think this may end up being frankly worse than having a single forum where everyone can debate.”
