Hillary Clinton has declared she will not leave Twitter even if her arch nemesis Donald Trump returns to the social media platform.

The former Secretary of State appeared as a guest on SiriusXM’s 'Mornings with Zerlina' Thursday, November 3, and spoke to host Zerlina Maxwell about the prospect of her 2016 presidential opponent making a comeback on Twitter, especially after it was purchased by billionaire Elon Musk. Several celebrities and notable figures announced they were leaving the social media site since the tech tycoon bought it for about $44 billion.

“Oh, I don’t think I’ll quit. At least for that reason. I think that it’s not easy, but we have to be present in these echo chambers, these information ecosystems, in order to compete in the marketplace of ideas,” Clinton told Maxwell. Trump, who is currently using the website Truth Social, has not revealed whether he plans to return to Twitter should the site unban him. “I am staying on Truth. I like it better, I like the way it works, I like Elon, but I’m staying on Truth,” he previously told Fox News.

Musk has promised to make Twitter a beacon of free speech, but also assured advertisers that the website will not become a "hellscape" and that a content moderation council will be established to handle accounts that repeatedly violate the platform's rules and community guidelines. Clinton, however, wants those who "incite violence" to be permanently banned from using social media platforms. Trump was removed by Twitter's previous management in the aftermath of the January 6, 2021 riots when some of his supporters allegedly breached the Capitol building in Washington, DC. “It’s not easy, and, you know, I don’t think people who incite violence should be allowed onto privately owned media platforms. But we’ll see how that unfolds,” Clinton said.

Clinton was recently tagged by Musk in a now-deleted tweet that shared a link to a baseless story suggesting that Paul Pelosi, husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, met his alleged assailant David DePape at a gay bar before he was attacked at their San Francisco residence. The viral story prompted Clinton to tweet, “The Republican Party and its mouthpieces now regularly spread hate and deranged conspiracy theories. It is shocking, but not surprising, that violence is the result. As citizens, we must hold them accountable for their words and the actions that follow.”

Musk responded to Clinton saying, "There’s a tiny possibility there may be more to this story than meets the eye," and shared a link to the aforementioned story. However, the Tesla CEO deleted the tweet after facing considerable pushback.

MEAWW previously reported how Hillary appeared to defend her husband Bill over his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. She said in a clip from her new series 'Gutsy' that the secret affair between her husband and Monica would have never come out if the couple were "not in the public eye." The former presidential hopeful also appeared to be defending her husband while claiming "sometimes it was crueler to come clean."
