After the Twitter deal burst: Donald Trump blasphemes about Elon Musk

Elon Musk does not want to buy Twitter after all: after months of a takeover thriller, the billionaire dropped the deal. One person who couldn’t help but scathingly comment on this – and on Musk’s character – is Donald Trump.

One who has had a vested interest in Elon Musk’s Twitter acquisition is former US President Donald Trump. He was banned from the platform after expressing sympathy for his supporters who stormed the Capitol in Washington on January 6, 2021 – a decision Musk once called “morally wrong and just plain stupid” in an interview with the Financial Times . had designated. Musk announced at the time that he would have reversed the permanent exclusion. The frustration of Trump, who could run for the presidency again in 2024 and could make good use of the social media platform, is likely to be all the greater. He vented his frustration at a rally in the US state of Alaska.

“Damn foam beater” deal: Trump blasphemes about Musk

There he used the stage to promote his own social media app, Truth Social – after all, he did it right, unlike Elon Musk’s deal, which Trump called “lazy”, as excerpts from the rally show. “Elon didn’t buy Twitter. Where did you hear that first? From me,” Trump added. “He’s gotten pretty carried away.” Trump then questioned Musk’s integrity: “He said last time he’s never voted for a Republican, but he told me once that he voted for me, so he’s just another damn loudmouth.” “He won’t buy it,” Trump predicted in his subsequent speech. “But who knows, maybe he will too.” No matter how the dispute between Twitter and Elon Musk turns out, Trump can always claim afterwards that he knew first.
