Elon Musk, the world’s richest man, has said that blocking former US President Donald Trump’s Twitter account was a “mistake” and “simply nonsense” and promised to reverse the decision if he finally bought the company.

“I believe it is not right to exclude Donald Trump [de Twitter]. I think it’s a mistake because it alienated much of the country, and in the end it did not achieve the goal of snatching Donald Trump’s voice, ”Musk told the Financial Times during a debate on Tuesday.

Trump’s account was removed from Twitter after the January 6, 2021 takeover of the U.S. capital, arguing that some of his comments on the social network “may have provoked violence.” At the time it was declared a “temporary suspension” and the full account was not canceled.
