Washington/IBNS: Tesla chief Elon Musk has said he will reverse former US President Donald Trump’s ban from Twitter if his bid to buy the micro-blogging platform is successful.

Musk had agreed to a $44bn takeover bid with the Twitter board last month.

Musk said it was not a done deal and it might be completed in the next two to three months.

Twitter’s decision to ban the former US president was “morally wrong and flat-out stupid”, Musk told the Financial Times Future of the Car summit as quoted by BBC.

In January 2021, Twitter said Trump’s account was “permanently suspended… due to the risk of further incitement of violence” following the storming of the Capitol, the British media reported.

Musk was quoted as saying by BBC,  “I would reverse the permanent ban but I don’t own Twitter yet so this is not a thing that will definitely happen.”
