Return of the King? Musk Declares He Would Un-Ban Trump

Do you think he is back? Maybe. Elon Musk, billionaire and freedom of speech advocate, stated that he will restore former President Donald Trump once he acquires Twitter. Will Trump be allowed to return, if this ban is lifted?

Musk said he would reverse Twitter’s Trump ban at a recent automobile event. “Musk, the Tesla CEO who is soon to own Twitter, said it was a mistake for the website to ban the former president,” The Washington PostApril 10, 2017. The article reported that Musk warned while speaking at aFuture of the Car event “I think it was a morally bad decision to be clear and foolish in the extreme.” He continued “I do think it was not correct to ban Donald Trump. I think that was a mistake … It alienated a large part of the country and did not ultimately result in Donald Trump not having a voice.”

Musk as a video purportedly from the eventHis reasoning was:

 “I guess the answer is that I would reverse the Twitter ban-obviously 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? Let me be very clear. [former Twitter CEO] Jack Dorsey shares this opinion, is that we should not have perma-bans.”

Musk hedged that the Twitter deal is still being worked out, but affirmed that his stance on Trump’s potential return is clear: “I guess the answer is I would reverse the permanent ban,” before adding, “I don’t own Twitter yet.”

When asked whether Trump’s behavior in the final days of his presidency deserved consequences, Musk said: “a temporary suspension is appropriate but not a permanent ban.” He acknowledged that “Banning Trump from Twitter didn’t end Trump’s voice — it will amplify it from the right,” condemning Twitter’s ban as “morally wrong and flat-out stupid.”


CNBC reported that Elon Musk would serve as the temporary CEO of Twitter until his acquisition of the company is complete. 

MuskFollowing a lengthy history of censorship on Twitter, the founder of Twitter bought it for $44 billion. Following censorship history, Twitter was acquired by him for $44 billion. March 26 post, Musk observed: “Given that Twitter serves as the de facto public town square, failing to adhere to free speech principles fundamentally undermines democracy.”

Musk was condemned for his acquisition of the platform by many organisations, even liberal billionaire George Soros. 

Twenty-six organizations ranging from gay advocacy to pro-abortion demanded corporations boycott Twitter They warned that Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s “takeover of Twitter will further toxify our information ecosystem and be a direct threat to public safety, especially among those already most vulnerable and marginalized.” Many organizations that signed the letter, such as the Free Press, MediaJustice (formerly Center for Media Justice) and the pro-abortion NARAL Pro-Choice America, National Hispanic Media Coalition, were heavily funded by liberal megadonor George Soros. Identity politics-based organizations such as the Marxist Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, Empowering Pacific Islander Communities, National Hispanic Media Coalition, Women’s March and GLAAD also signed the bill.
