Donald Trump’s Twitter account was banned permanently after the riots in the US Capitol. However, Elon Musk reinstated him on this platform that he recently acquired. Musk held a vote on whether to unban Trump or not. A razor-thin majority of people voted for his reinstatement.

After getting about 52% vote for Trump’s reinstatement from 15 million respondents, Musk tweeted, “The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated. Vox Populi. Vox Dei.”

Trump’s response

However, the former US President from Las Vegas attending the Republican Jewish Coalition meeting said, “Truth Social is through the roof. It’s doing phenomenally well. Truth Social has been very, very powerful, very, very strong. And I’ll be staying there. But I hear we’re getting a big vote to also go back on Twitter. I don’t see it because I don’t see any reason for it.”

He added further, “They have a lot of problems. You see what’s going on. It may make it, it may not make it.” However, he said about Musk, “He’s a character and I tend to like characters. But he’s smart.” Trump is happy that Elon bought Twitter.

Twitter’s reason to ban before

After banning Trump in 2021 for an indefinite period, Twitter said, “After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence. 

“In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action.”

On the tweets posted by Donald Trump that ultimately led to the ban, Twitter said that the tweets, “must be read in the context of broader events in the country and the ways in which the President’s statements can be mobilized by different audiences, including to incite violence, as well as in the context of the pattern of behavior from this account in recent weeks.”
