Elon Musk said Tuesday that he will reverse Twitter’s permanent ban on former President Donald Trump.
Musk, who purchased Twitter last month for $44 billion, said at FT Live’s Future of the Car conference that it was “not correct to ban Donald Trump.”
“I think that was a mistake because it alienated a large part of the county, and did not ultimately result in Donald Trump not having a voice,” Musk said, adding that the decision was “morally bad.”
“I would reverse the permanent ban,” Musk added.
Once Musk’s purchase of Twitter is finalized he is expected to serve as the company’s CEO for a period of time.
