Elon Musk says Trump had no involvement in decision to acquire Twitter



Elon Musk

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!”

    Just DNC media pushing a total lie and nonstory to go after Elon Musk since he believes in our core values of freedom of speech. They just can’t stand it.

    For much I liked Trump why would a notoriously successful businessman need the approval of a has-been failed former president? And I totally agree with the “little jab”… Musk is less funny than Trump but as scalpel sharp…

    Is that a double negative or am I reading it wrong? I’m no English major but it really seems like today’s journalists don’t write correctly.

    PRESIDENT TRUMP has set up his own platform.
    Why would he go anywhere else? He already has so many millions of followers….
    But it is a GREAT move for FREEDOM of Speech and thoughts on the part of Mr MUSK!

    “there is no truth to rumors that former President Donald Trump had no involvement with his Twitter purchase.”
    Bad editing. This actually says that DT had involvement with the purchase.

Historic House Vote Expels Rep. George Santos Amidst Scandal

In a turn of events, the House of Representatives made history on Friday with a vote to expel Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), marking the first such expulsion in over two decades. A moment fraught with gravity unfolded as Speaker Mike Johnson wielded his gavel to formalize Santos’ removal, setting a precedent in congressional annals.

Santos, indicted on 23 counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, and other charges, has not faced conviction but stands accused of misusing campaign funds for opulent purchases. The bipartisan vote, tallying 311 to 114, signaled robust support for expulsion, with a marginally higher number of Republicans opting to retain Santos.

Questions loomed as Speaker Johnson left the chamber, his silence leaving the fate of the ongoing government spending battle uncertain. According to reports from Fox News, Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer emphasized the non-partisan nature of the decision, asserting that members concluded Santos had tarnished the House’s reputation and was unfit for representation.

Within the GOP, conflicting opinions emerged, with Rep. Darrell Issa arguing against expulsion, citing the presumption of innocence. The tight-lipped stance of the House Ethics Committee played a pivotal role in the deliberations.

Conversely, members of the New York Republican delegation, led by Rep. Marc Molinaro, asserted Santos’ commission of crimes, justifying expulsion based on a comprehensive investigation.

Santos himself predicted the outcome in an exclusive morning interview on “FOX & Friends.” This vote not only underlines the House’s rare use of expulsion powers but also sets a critical precedent in handling members facing severe legal challenges.
