Elon Musk has announced that he is going to be unbanning Donald Trump from Twitter if and when he’s able to successfully purchase the social media platform in the coming months. Musk was asked at an event whether he would allow the former president back on Twitter. He said, “permanent bans should be extremely rare” and should be mostly reserved for bots and scam accounts. Musk went on to say, “I do think that it was not correct to ban Donald Trump. I think that was a mistake because it alienated a large part of the country and it did not ultimately result in Trump not having a voice.” Hilariously enough, Trump has expressed that he is not interested in rejoining Twitter and wants to stay on his Truth Social platform, which has not been off to a tremendous start. Generally speaking, Musk is correct to oppose banning people for life. Trump has been kicked off Twitter now for over a year for spreading disinformation about the 2020 election and inciting the Capitol insurrection of January 6, 2021. Trump shouldn’t be permanently banned from these social media sites, but that doesn’t mean now is necessarily the appropriate time to allow him back on.
