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

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.

The president of Shiraz University in Iran offered free tuition for any of the American pro-Hamas students causing disruption on college campuses if their actions resulted in expulsion.

“Students and even professors who have been expelled or threatened with expulsion can continue their studies at Shiraz University, and I think that other universities in Shiraz, as well as Fars Province, are also prepared,” Mohammad Moazzeni, the school’s leader, told the state-owned Press TV.

The Associated Press reported that more than 2,000 individuals have been arrested at various college locations throughout the U.S. in recent demonstrations against Israel’s military operations in Gaza.

Several other universities in Iran have reportedly joined the endeavor. Shahid Beheshti University’s president, Mahmoud Aghamiri, said that his institution has “considered scholarships for these students and will fully pay for their education, dormitory, and stay.”

Foreign Desk News reports that notable violent incidents have occurred at Brown University, Columbia University, California State Polytechnic University, Emerson College, Emory University, George Washington University, New York University, the University of North Carolina, Portland State University, Yale University, and the University of California at Los Angeles.

Pro-Islamic Republic regime-controlled media outlets in Iran broadcasted live images of Thursday’s confrontations between police and anti-Israel agitators at UCLA, where at least 200 arrests were made.
