Elon Musk would reverse Twitter's Donald Trump ban: 'Was a morally bad decision'

Elon Musk has revealed he would reverse Twitter’s ban on former President Donald Trump.

The soon-to-be owner of Twitter slammed the social media platform’s permanent suspension of Trump during a conference on Tuesday.

‘I do think it was not correct to ban Donald Trump, I think that was a mistake,’ said Musk during the the Future of the Car event in London.

‘I would reverse the perma-ban. I will say that I don’t own Twitter yet, so this is not a thing that will definitely happen, because what if I don’t own Twitter? But my opinion, and Jack Dorsey, I want to be clear, shares this opinion, is that we should not have perma-bans.’

Musk said Twitter’s decision in January 2020, following the Capitol riot, ‘was a morally bad decision to be clear and foolish in the extreme’.

‘It alienated a large part of the country and did not ultimately result in Donald Trump not having a voice,’ the Tesla CEO said.
