 Donald Trump said Saturday, Nov 19, that he has no interest in returning to Twitter after the majority voted to reinstate the former president's account. Elon Musk agreed to the restoration of Trump's account after people voted on it on social media. Twitter users voted 52 per cent to 48 per cent to allow Trump's return to the platform. Musk tweeted, "The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated. Vox Populi, Vox Dei."

Trump's account, which had been suspended, reappeared on Twitter on Sunday, Nov. 20, shortly after Musk declared that he was lifting the former president's 22-month suspension. The 24-hour poll received more than 15 million votes. Musk had in the past restored accounts of conservative media personality Jordan Peterson and the satirical website Babylon Bee.

Trump has said that he had "a lot of problems at Twitter” and wishes to stick to his own media house. "I hear we’re getting a big vote to also go back on Twitter. I don’t see it because I don’t see any reason for it,” Trump told the Republican Jewish Coalition meeting in Las Vegas via video link. "It may make it, it may not make it.”

While some social media users believe Trump will fail to keep his word, others doubt if he is refusing to leave Truth Social due to some legality issues. "I doubt that is the reason. I’m sure there’s some legality issues re: Truth Social. A clause perhaps?" one user wrote. "He’ll probably change his tune very soon," another said. "Yup, he’s contractually forbidden from coming back on Twitter, but no way will he admit that. And he’ll probably end up coming back anyway, because he needs the attention," one user said.

"If he returned to Twitter it would undermine his entire social media platform, but we’ll see if he changes his mind," one user wrote, while another said, "It has to be a dilemma for 45. He loves adoration and numbers. At TS he probably gets more adoration and less controversy than he would on Twitter but on Twitter, there is no question that the audience is much larger. So what's the tiebreaker? $$$ of course. TS is income." One user wrote, "He's never honored a contract or an oath."
