Twitter CEO Elon Musk held no punches after saying the Biden administration could “arm” federal agencies against Twitter if former President Donald Trump returns to the platform.
“It will be interesting to see how the Biden administration responds to this,” Musk tweeted Wednesday. “They can try to arm federal agencies against Twitter.”
Musk’s post was in response to a user’s tweet about Trump’s alleged return to Twitter and Facebook after his long-term ban from the platforms.
According to NBC News, Trump’s presidential campaign asked Facebook’s parent company, Meta, to grant him access to his social media accounts.
Trump’s Twitter account was shut down following the January 2021 Capitol riot. Musk restored Trump’s personal Twitter account on November 19 after conducting a public poll.
He hasn’t posted anything on Twitter since his reassignment.
Trump has been active on his Truth Social account — the former president’s own social media platform that he created when Twitter banned him from their services. However, the president stated that he has no plans to return to Twitter.
“I’m not going on Twitter, I’m staying on TRUTH,” Trump told TBEN News. “I hope Elon buys Twitter because he will make improvements to it and he’s a good man, but I’m sticking with TRUTH.”
