Trump Media & Technology Group CEO Devin Nunes said that while President Trump is firm in his decision to stay on his viral app Truth Social, he is “very supportive” of Elon Musk’s bid to purchase Twitter.
“We’re very supportive of what Elon is saying,” Nunes said, according to Fox News.
However, Nunes questioned whether Musk would be able to change the tech giant’s censorship policies as he intends.
“The question is, will he accomplish what he’s saying dealing with the employees, dealing with the algorithms,” Nunes added.
Nonetheless, the multibillionaire finally announced he would reverse Twitter’s ban on Trump’s account, as reported by RSBN.
“Permanent bans should be extremely rare” and “reserved for accounts that are bots or spam accounts where there’s just no legitimacy to the account at all,” Musk said.
Musk expressed that Twitter’s ban “alienated a large part of the country and did not ultimately result in Donald Trump not having a voice – he is now going to be on Truth Social…as will a large part of the, sort of the, right in the United States.”
While many conservatives and free-speech activists support Musk’s statements, the 45th president has expressed no interest in returning to Twitter even if his account was reinstated.
“I am not going on Twitter, I am going to stay on TRUTH,” Trump stated.
“We’re taking in millions of people. And what we’re finding is that the response on TRUTH is much better than being on Twitter.”
