BREAKING: Musk Says He Will Restore Trump’s Twitter Account If Deal For Twitter Goes Through

In a move that isn’t surprising, Elon Musk has stated that he will restore Donald Trump’s Twitter account if his deal to buy Twitter goes through:

Musk, speaking virtually at a Future of the Car summit hosted by the Financial Times, said Twitter’s Trump ban was a “morally bad decision” and “foolish in the extreme.” He said permanent bans of Twitter accounts should be rare and reserved for accounts that are scams or automated bots.

Twitter banned Trump’s account in January 2021 for “incitement of violence” following the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

Musk’s view of free speech being absolute already rubs people the wrong way. This move if it goes through is sure to tick off a lot of people and maybe turn some against him. I’ll be watching Twitter to see what sort of reaction there is as it’s sure to be fast and furious.
