Elon Musk said that Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump in the 2020 election because people in the United States wanted less drama. The Tesla owner further said that the Democratic president was not elected to transform the country.
The world’s richest man tweeted, “Biden’s mistake is that he thinks he was elected to change the country, but in reality everyone wanted less drama.”
Trump would return to Twitter
The SpaceX owner said he wants a “less polarizing” candidate than Donald Trump for the next U.S. election, even though he plans to restore the former president’s Twitter account.
“While I think a less divisive candidate would be better off in 2024, I still think Trump should be reinstated on Twitter,” Musk tweeted Thursday.
Musk said Tuesday that he would reverse Twitter’s ban on former President Donald Trump when the deal to buy the social network is finalized.
“Permanent bans should be extremely rare and really reserved for accounts that are bots, scams, spam accounts… I think it was wrong to ban Donald Trump,” Musk said during FT Live’s Future of the Car conference.
Trump remained present.
“I think it was a mistake, because it alienated a large part of the country and ultimately didn’t result in Donald Trump not having a voice,” he added.
“I would reverse the permanent ban,” Musk added. “I still don’t own Twitter. So this isn’t like something that will definitely happen, because what if it turns out I don’t own Twitter?”
Expelled from Twitter on January 8, 2021 due to the risk of incitement to violence, Trump had ruled out last Monday that he will return: “I’m not going back to Twitter, I’m staying on truth” he told Fox News in allusion to the Truth Social platform he launched in February and which he has presented as a conservative alternative to Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
