Musk added in a separate tweet on Thursday: “Biden’s mistake is that he thought he was elected to transform the country, when in reality everyone just wanted less drama.”
The Tesla CEO made the remarks at the FT Live “Future of Automotive” conference hosted by FT Live on Tuesday.
“Permanent bans should be extremely rare and should really be used for bot accounts or scam, spam accounts…I really don’t think it’s right to ban Donald Trump,” Musk said. I think that was a mistake because it alienated a large part of the country and didn’t end up giving Donald Trump a voice.”
“I would reverse the permanent ban,” Musk added, “but I don’t have Twitter yet. So it doesn’t seem like a sure thing, because if I can’t have Twitter.”
Trump has previously said that even if his ban is lifted, he will no longer be on Twitter, opting instead to stay on his own company, Truth Social.
“I’m not going to be on Twitter, I’m going to stay on TRUTH. I want Elon to buy Twitter because he’s going to improve it, he’s a good guy, but I’m going to stay on TRUTH.” Trump on April 25 Day told Fox News.
And that day, Twitter accepted Musk’s offer to buy the company.
