Is Trump Gearing Up For a Triumphant Return To Twitter? Here’s What We Know
(USNewsMag.com) – Billionaire Elon Musk has finally revealed whether he would invite former President Donald Trump back on Twitter if and when he takes ownership of the company. The Tesla founder confirmed he would. He has the support of a very prominent group.
On May 10, Musk spoke about Trump’s Twitter ban at a Financial Times conference. He said the ban was “morally wrong and flat-out stupid” because not only did it alienate people but also denied the 45th president a voice. American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Executive Director Anthony D. Romero issued a statement saying Trump is “one of the most important political figures” in America and the “public has a strong interest in hearing his speech.”
“You’d be hard-pressed to find a more steadfast opponent of Trump and his policies than the ACLU, but Elon Musk’s decision to re-platform President Trump is the right call" says ACLU executive director Anthony D. Romero.

Romero pointed out that individuals who have the power over important political speech forums should use it “with restraint.” Further, he believes if Trump is allowed back on Twitter and violates the platform’s terms of service again, then the company should first use other methods like removing his posts, before banning him.
Trump has said he has no intention of returning to the platform if his ban is lifted because he’s using his own platform TRUTH Social. However, some believe he might not be able to resist returning.
Do you agree with the ACLU? And would you like to see Trump return to Twitter?
