Speaking at a Financial Times conference in London on Tuesday, the SpaceX founder said Twitter’s attempt to ban the former US president was “a morally bad decision and utterly foolish.”

“It alienated a large part of the country and ultimately didn’t result in Donald Trump having no voice. He’ll be on Truth Social now,” Musk said. “So I think frankly this could be worse than having a single forum for everyone to discuss. I think the answer is that I would reverse the permanent ban.’

But that doesn’t mean Musk wants the former Celebrity Apprentice host to return to the Oval Office.

“Even though I think a less divisive candidate would be better in 2024, I still think Trump should be restored on Twitter,” Musk tweeted Thursday.

Trump was permanently banned from Twitter on Jan. 8, days after his supporters stormed the Capitol and forced senators into safe rooms as they confirmed the election results in Biden’s favour.

in one Explanation At the time, the company quoted a tweet in which Trump promised his supporters would have a “HUGE VOICE” long into the future. In another tweet, he clarified that he would not attend Biden’s inauguration.

Musk has since made it clear that he will bring Trump back to Twitter once his purchase is complete.

Musk said Dorsey, who was CEO until November 2021, agreed with him.

“I agree,” Dorsey tweeted, noting that he supports bans on sharing content like child sexual exploitation (CSE), but not in general.

“There are exceptions (CSE, illegal conduct, spam or network manipulation, etc.) but in general, permanent bans are a mistake on our part and don’t work, which I wrote about here after the event (and called for a robust social media log) .’

The former president turned down the offer in favor of his own fledgling network, Truth Social, which is struggling to attract users.

In a poll conducted by CNN and released in February, half of Republican and Republican-leaning independents said they would nominate Trump again in 2024.

Among those who preferred another candidate, 21 percent chose Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, whose high-profile dispute with Disney over the so-called “Don’t Say Gay” law mobilized conservatives in his favor.

Musk also tweeted on Thursday: “Biden’s mistake is that he thinks he was elected to change the country when everyone just wanted less drama.”

Biden’s poll numbers are struggling as inflation, driven in part by the pandemic’s impact on the supply chain, continues to push prices higher.

A recent Morning Consult poll shows he’s a net favorite in only 10 US states.

The only states where Biden isn’t underwater are California, Washington, Maryland, New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, Illinois, Rhode Island, Delaware, Hawaii and the District of Columbia.

But even there, its net approval has shrunk dramatically since this time last year.

Meanwhile, Twitter’s workforce restructuring continues as Musk takes over the platform.

The head of the consumer goods division, Kayvon Beykpour, and the general manager of revenue, Bruce Falck, were summarily axed following the billionaire’s takeover last month.

Beykpour, the founder of Periscope, admitted on his account that he didn’t want to leave but was brutally ousted by CEO Parag Agrawal during his paternity leave so they could “lead the team in a new direction.”

A leaked memo to employees from the under-fire Twitter boss noted that the tech giant needed the “right leaders at the right time.”

He announced that Jay Sullivan, interim GM of the consumer products business, will fill both of their jobs in a new, merged role.

It comes as the social media company unleashes a tsunami of cuts by curbing spending from contractors, travel and events, marketing and real estate.
