Trump calls Elon Musk a "good guy," but says he won't return to Twitter

 




After announcing Elon Musk's purchase of Twitter, Donald Trump stated that he would not return to the previously blocked platform.


Despite buying Tesla CEO Elon Musk $44 billion, Trump announced he would not rejoin Twitter and would instead use his own network, TRUTH Social.


On Monday, Fox News reported that it would officially join the platform within seven days, as planned.


"I don't use Twitter, I'll stay true. I hope Elon buys Twitter because he's going to make improvements and he's a good guy, but I'll stay on the truth, "he said.


Trump Media & Technology Group's social media network debuted in March and is working on its new cloud services for four days after the pilot test.




"We're receiving millions of people, and what we've discovered is that the response to TRUTH is much better than the response to Twitter," Trump said. "Twitter has fake robots and accounts, and we do everything we can."


The bottom line is, no, I'm not going back to Twitter, "he added afterwards.


Following the January 6 US Capitol incident, in which Trump supporters tried to block the strong certification of Joe Biden's election victory, he was banned from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat.


Musk made free speech on Twitter a key aspect of his takeover campaign, leading some to believe that if he had full control, he would allow Trump and other banned right-wing figures to return to the platform.


He was happy to buy Musk on Twitter, but said he was not a competitor to his company.


"I think it's good. "We want freedom, justice and equity in our country, and the more we open up, the better," Trump said.


"But no, I don't see that as a competition for what I do. This is a platform for my voice. Trump said, "Truth is a platform for my voice and for my supporters. "But I want everyone to talk about the truth - conservatives and liberals, whatever."
