Potential future Twitter owner Elon Musk suggested he would reverse a ban on former President Donald Trump’s account, arguing the decision undermined trust in the social media platform. The comments came during a Q&A period during a keynote at a conference on the future of vehicle technologies.
Trump was banned Jan. 8, 2021, in the days following the storming of the US Capitol, after tweets Twitter said violated platform rules around inciting violence. At the time of the ban, he had amassed more than 88 million followers, leveraging the platform to communicate directly with supporters.
The former president has said he would not return to Twitter, having launched a competitor in Truth Social, though he has only begun frequently posting in recent weeks.
Musk does not formally own Twitter yet and voiced support for temporary bans. Listen to his full comments here.
