He plans to stay along with his personal problem-plagued social media firm Truth Social, which he has used as soon as earlier than its launch in February when he messaged: “Get ready! Your favourite president will see you quickly.”
“I’m not happening Twitter, I’m going to remain on Reality,” he told Fox News. Trump added that he believes Musk will possible “make enhancements” to Twitter and known as him a “good man, however I’m going to be staying on Reality.”
Musk is predicted to take an anything-goes method to his new firm, and observers imagine he’d enable Trump again on Twitter. The previous president was completely banned by Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat for his function in inciting final 12 months’s violent rebellion on the U.S. Capitol.
Trump posts all of his statements on the Twitter account of his aide Liz Harrington. He even announced the creation of Truth Social on Harrington’s Twitter account. However he insisted to Fox that he’ll be stepping up his use of Reality Social later this week — simply in time to compete with Musk.
“We’re taking in hundreds of thousands of individuals, and what we’re discovering is that the response on Reality is a lot better than being on Twitter,” Trump boasted with out providing any knowledge. “Twitter has bots and pretend accounts, and we’re doing every part we will.”
He added: “The underside line is, no, I’m not going again to Twitter.”
“We wish liberty and justice and equity in our nation, and the extra we will have open, the higher,” Trump continued. “I don’t view that [Musk’s Twitter] as a contest for what I’m doing.”
Trump characterised his social media firm as a “platform for my voice. Reality is a platform for my voice and for my supporters.”
However then he contradicted himself, saying he needs “everyone to come back over to Reality — conservatives, liberals, no matter. ” He didn’t point out the “radical leftist maniacs” he attacked at his Ohio political rally on Saturday.
Musk’s Twitter operation is extensively seen as unhealthy information for Reality Social for the reason that Tesla CEO is predicted to permit most of the similar extremist voices being courted by Trump’s operation. Reality Social stock prices were reportedly down 13% by late Monday afternoon.
Musk tweeted Monday that he needs even his staunchest critics to stay with Twitter.
