Donald Trump reacts after Elon Musk reinstates his Twitter account, ends life ban

Donald Trump has officially been reinstated on Twitter, but Saturday afternoon the former president cast doubt on whether he’ll return to the platform.

“Vote with positivity now, but don’t worry, we’re not going anywhere. Truth is social!” she posted.

“Reinstate Former President Trump: Yes or No,” the survey asked simply.

Fifty-two percent of users agreed that he should be allowed back on the platform, which has already reinstated other lifetime bans, including satirical account Babylon Bee, Kathy Griffin and Jordan Peterson.

Musk wrote, “The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated.” “Vox populi, vox dei.”

According to Musk, more than 134 million people saw the poll.

Trump was previously banned from Twitter on January 6, 2021, for allegedly inciting violence at the US Capitol building or for fear that he might use the platform in such a way.

“Vox populi, vox Dei,” Musk added in a later tweet, a Latin phrase that translates to “the voice of the people is the voice of God.”

In another tweet, Musk considered the option of using more polls to help gauge support for potential actions. He also told a user that he may add a feature for all active users in the country to be able to vote.
