Former US President Donald Trump was banned from Twitter in January 2021 after the storm that hit the US Capitol. Now Elon Musk is probably taking the stage – and announcing that Trump will return.

Ix President Donald Trump may be expected to return to Twitter in time for the 2024 White House race. Tech billionaire Elon Musk, who is in the process of taking over Twitter, will let Trump back on stage. The decision to ban Trump was “morally wrong and just plain stupid,” Musk said in a video interview at a Financial Times event on Tuesday.

Trump was banned from Twitter after expressing sympathy to his supporters who stormed the Capitol in Washington on January 6, 2021. In past weeks, Trump has fueled sentiments with baseless claims that the election victory against Joe Biden was stolen through fraud.

Trump recently said he doesn’t want to go back to Twitter, even if he could. Presence on the stage, where he once had more than 80 million followers, could be crucial to a possible candidacy in the 2024 presidential election. Trump used Twitter very actively to mobilize his supporters and create an atmosphere. He is trying to set up his own social media platform, which is battling with the problems of the startup.

Musk said Trump’s ban on Twitter was a mistake because a large section of the American public did not agree with it. And that didn’t mean the former president was no longer able to make himself heard.

It will take some time to become clear whether or not Musk will actually get Twitter. The boss of electric car maker Tesla agreed a deal worth about $44 billion with Twitter’s board of directors, but is still up to enough shareholders to want to hand over their shares to him. Twitter and Musk aim to complete the acquisition by the end of the year.
