Trump weighs in on his return to Twitter — Analysis
The former president expressed doubt that Elon Musk would be able to make Twitter less “boring” for him
Donald Trump was the former US president. He said that Twitter has become boring to him and that Elon Musk is unable to motivate him to go back to social media.
During the Americano Media broadcast on Wednesday, Trump, once famous for his endless stream of tweets and later banned from all major social media platforms, was asked to comment on the news of Elon Musk’s possible acquisition of Twitter.
Asked if he would return to tweeting if Musk bought the platform, Trump responded: “I probably wouldn’t have any interest.” He recalled with nostalgia some “Some pretty great fights” on Twitter when he and his associates “Would pursue the progressives.” In Trump’s opinion, “It was a fascinating conflict” is not there anymore.
“Twitter’s become very boring. They’ve gotten rid of a lot of good voices on Twitter, a lot of their conservative voices,” he explained.
In a “Non-binding proposition” to Twitter, its largest shareholder, the eccentric businessman Elon Musk said that the social media platform should be transformed to better serve its free speech “Social imperative.” This statement immediately prompted speculation that a ban on Trump might be lifted if Musk buys Twitter.
Following the January 6th, 2021 attack on the Capitol Building in Washington by a group of his supporters, the ex-president was removed from Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Truth Social was launched by the former president, but hasn’t enjoyed much popularity.
