Elon Musk ready to reverse Trump’s Twitter ban

Donald Trump’s ban from Twitter could be reversed, Elon Musk said. Musk, who has become the new owner of the social network, stated that the decision to block the former US president was “morally wrong”

Donald Trump was banned from Twitter after the US Capitol riots in January 2022. The former US president claimed his defeat in the presidential elections in November 2020 was the result of electoral fraud. The social network’s administration removed Trump’s account, stating that Trump’s tweets could “inspire others to replicate violent acts.” 

Elon Musk, known for being an advocate of unrestricted free speech, stated that Trump would be allowed to return to Twitter.

“Permanent bans should be extremely rare and reserved for accounts that are bots or scam accounts,” Musk said at a conference organized by the Financial Times. The billionaire commented that the decision was bad from a moral standpoint and alienated a significant part of the US. He added that it would be revised.
