This Monday, former President Donald Trump said he would not return to Twitter despite the social networking platform’s announcement that it accepted Elon Musk’s $44 billion acquisition proposal, according to Fox News. 

Trump told the news network that he will stay on his social network TRUTH and expects Musk to buy Twitter.

“I am not going on Twitter, I am going to stay on TRUTH,” the former president said, adding, “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.”

There was much speculation that Trump would return to Twitter if the Tesla CEO bought it, but these latest statements by the former president make it clear that this will not happen and that his bet is on his social network TRUTH.

In this regard, he said the following:

“We’re taking in millions of people, and what we’re finding is that the response on TRUTH is much better than being on Twitter.”

He stressed that Twitter “has bots and fake accounts” and that at TRUTH, they are working against that.

And he was emphatic about his refusal to return to the social network of the little bird:

“The bottom line is, no, I am not going back to Twitter.”

At the same time, he gave assurances that he does not see Musk’s Twitter as competition and that it would be very good if it passed into the hands of the billionaire.

“I think it is good. We want liberty and justice and fairness in our country, and the more we can have open, the better,” said the former president, adding that he does not see it as a “competition for what I am doing.”

For Trump, Twitter became very boring because conservatives were censored, and many others left the platform when he was ousted.

And as a counterpoint, he explained that TRUTH “is a platform for my voice and for my supporters” but that he intends for everyone to come on and not just conservatives.

“But I want everybody to come over to TRUTH—conservatives, liberals, whatever,” Trump said.

TRUTH SOCIAL was launched on a limited basis last February, and its CEO is former Republican Representative for California, Devin Nunes.

From his comments, it can be seen that Trump has his sights set on this venture that aims to guarantee total freedom of expression for users.

So returning to Twitter is not on his horizon.
