Sorry left wing freedom of speech haters, Elon Musk says he is more than willing to have former President Donald Trump back on Twitter.
During an exclusive interview with the Financial Times Live’s Future of the Car conference, the Tesla and SpaceX billionaire spoke to Peter Campbell about his ambitions for Tesla and his desire to become the world’s largest carmaker by 2030.
Musk also emphatically stated he would reverse the “morally wrong” and “flat out stupid” ban Twitter imposed upon Trump after the January 6th Capitol riots.
“Permanent bans should be extremely rare and really reserved for accounts that are bots, or scam, spam accounts . . . I do think it was not correct to ban Donald Trump,” Musk said.
“I think that was a mistake, because it alienated a large part of the country and did not ultimately result in Donald Trump not having a voice.”

Austin become first Texas city to approve pilot ‘Guaranteed Income Program’
Austin, Texas has approved a pilot ‘Guaranteed Income’ program joining other liberal cities. The program will give 85 families $1,000 per month for an entire year. The program’s $1.18 million in funding will be handled by a nonprofit and recipients can spend the money however they wish.
Austin Mayor Steve Adler, who belongs to a coalition called Mayors for a Guaranteed Income, said it will prevent homelessness; it’s not a “giveaway” but rather, “it is investing in ourselves.”
“We can find people moments before they end up on our streets and prevent them, divert them from being there. That would be not only wonderful for them, it would be wise and smart for the taxpayers in the city of Austin because it will be a lot less expensive to divert someone from homelessness than to help them find a home once they’re on our streets,” said Adler.
Atlanta, Georgia also announced it was launching a similar pilot basic income program in January. 300 residents will receive $500 each month for a year. NBC DFW5 reports that “Across the country, dozens of cities and counties — some using money from the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package approved in March 2021 — are giving some low-income residents a guaranteed income of $500 to $1,000 each month to do with as they please, and tracking what happens.”
The Mayors coalition will use its data –collected by a University of Pennsylvania-based rrsearch center — to lobby the White House and Congress for a federal guaranteed income.
