Elon Musk says he would allow former President Trump back on Twitter: “We should not have permanent bans."

Elon Musk, the chief executive officer of Tesla and SpaceX, spoke at Financial Times Live’s Future of the Car conference today.

The business magnate talked about his Twitter plans and his future plans for Tesla. He was joined by JB Strawbel, a businessman and former chief technical officer at the company.

Musk tackled the questions thrown at him by Peter Campbell, the global motor industry correspondent through a video call.

When asked whether he would allow Donald Trump back on Twitter, Musk said that he would reverse the permanent ban. He mentioned that Jack Dorsey, the co-founder and former CEO of Twitter, was also of the same opinion.

“I think that was that was a mistake because it alienated a large part of the country and did not ultimately result in Donald Trump, not having a voice,” he said.

He claimed the former President moved on to TRUTH Social, the rival social media platform that he created, and voiced his concerns there.

The South-African-born entrepreneur reiterated that the permanent ban undermined the concept of Twitter as the “Townsquare where everyone can voice their opinion.”
