Elon Musk says he would allow Donald Trump back on Twitter

Tech billionaire Elon Musk said Tuesday that he would allow former President Donald Trump back on Twitter after Musk completes his plan to buy the social media service.

Musk said at an event sponsored by the Financial Times that it was “foolish in the extreme” for Twitter to permanently suspend Trump in January 2021 after Trump’s supporters violently stormed the U.S. Capitol, according to a video of the event posted online.

Twitter’s CEO at the time, Jack Dorsey, defended the Trump ban as protecting against offline harm “based on threats to physical safety both on and off Twitter.”

Trump said last month that he would not return to Twitter even if allowed to do so, telling Fox News that he was committed to his own Truth Social platform.
