But once Musk announced he was interested in taking over the company in part to make it a free speech platform, questions arose whether he would invite Trump back on. Trump said last month he wouldn’t return to the company if he had the chance.

“No, I won’t be going back on Twitter,” Trump told CNBC’s Joe Kernen.

“I will be on Truth Social within the week. Its on schedule. We have a lot of people signed up. I like Elon Musk. I like him a lot. He’s an excellent individual. We did a lot for Twitter when I was in the White House. I was disappointed by the way I was treated by Twitter. I won’t be going back on Twitter,” he said.
