PIERS Morgan has said that Trump must be allowed back on Twitter after his ‘nuts’ ban, ahead of the news that Elon Musk’s bid to take over was reportedly successful.
Speaking to Fox News this lunchtime, Piers told of his respect for the Tesla CEO.
He said: “Musk is an absolute flag bearer for free speech and talks about this woke mindset virus, and I think he’s right – it is a virus.
“Musk wants to return free speech, he recognizes it’s completely ridiculous that Trump is banned from Twitter, while Putin and the Supreme Leader of Iran still have accounts.
“If Musk takes control we’ll see a much more tolerant view of people and free speech – not just on the left but on the right.”
He added: “First thing I would do if I was him is I would uncancel Donald Trump from Twitter – his banning was completely nuts and politically motivated”.
Elon Musk’s bid to buy Twitter has reportedly been successful.
The acceptance of Musk’s bid is a shocking reversal on a deal that looked to be dead in the water.
A Saudi Arabian prince with considerable stake in Twitter rejected Musk’s bid as too low before the board even convened.
The company attempted a to swallow a ‘poison pill‘ – a business strategy for preventing hostile takeovers by diluting the new party’s shares – to try stop Musk or make the buyout more expensive for him.
But, right now, it seems as though Musk’s “best and final offer” of $43billion stands and Twitter executives have seriously considering accepting.
