Nov. 19 (UPI) — Controversial billionaire Elon Musk, who recently purchased Twitter, announced that former President Donald Trump’s account has been reinstated.
“The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated. Vox Populi, Vox Dei,” Musk said on the platform.
Musk had polled Twitter users on whether to reinstate the account of former President Donald Trump on Friday.
A review of Trump’s account, @realDonaldTrump, shows that his account has in fact been reinstated though the former president has not yet tweeted.
“Vote now with positivity, but don’t worry, we aren’t going anywhere. Truth Social is special!” Trump said on his Truth Social platform before the vote concluded.
The results from the simple poll showed that 51.8% of Twitter users who responded had voted to reinstate Trump. More than 15 million votes were cast. It was not immediately clear how many bot accounts had voted.
