Elon Musk set the record straight saying there is no truth to rumors that former President Donald Trump had no involvement with his Twitter purchase. “This is false. I’ve had no communication, directly or indirectly, with Trump, who has publicly stated that he will be exclusively on Truth Social” Musk tweeted.

Musk’s response comes after Devin Nunes said Trump had “encouraged” Musk to acquire Twitter. Nunes is the CEO of Trump Media and Technology Group.
In an appearance on Fox Business Network Nunes stated “President Trump, basically before Elon Musk bought it, actually said to go and buy it because the goal of our company is really to build a community where people are in a family-friendly, safe environment.”
“That’s why we encouraged Elon Musk to buy it, because someone has to take on these tech tyrants,” Nunes added. “Donald Trump wanted to make sure that the American people got their voice back and that the internet was open and that’s what we are doing.”
Last month on Fox News Trump said “I am not going on Twitter, I am going to stay on Truth…I hope Elon buys Twitter because he’ll make improvements to it and he is a good man, but I am going to be staying on Truth.”
Also last month Musk tweeted a little jab at Truth Social, tweeting:
“Truth Social (terrible name) exists because Twitter censored free speech. Should be called Trumpet instead!”

BREAKING: Elon Musk would reverse Twitter’s ‘flat out stupid’ Trump ban
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.”
