Former President Donald Trump said he doesn't "see any reason" for returning to Twitter after being reinstated by new CEO Elon Musk.
Trump said this at the leadership meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition when he was asked by CEO Matt Brooks. Brooks mentioned that Musk conducted a poll to see if he should be reinstated.
“I don’t know if you’ve been following. Twitter is blowing up today: Elon Musk posted a poll that had over 13 million respondents so far, asking whether or not you should be reinstated on on Twitter,” Brooks said. “My question to you is what do you think about Elon Musk buying Twitter? And if you are reinstated, will we see you back on Twitter again?”
“I don’t see any reason for it. There are a lot of problems in Twitter, you see what’s going on,” he said. “They may or may not make it but the problems are terrible. The engagements are negative. And you have a lot of bots and you have a lot of fake accounts.”
Trump also pointed out that his social media platform Truth social “is through the roof” and “doing phenomenally well.”
Back in May Musk stated he would bring Trump back to Twitter.
“That doesn’t mean that someone gets to say whatever they want to say,” Musk said. “If they say something that is illegal or destructive to the world, then there should be perhaps a timeout, temporary suspension or that particular tweet should be made invisible or have very little traction.”
“I would reverse the permanent ban,” Musk added.

This isn't the first time Trump has pointed out he won't be returning to Twitter.
“No, I won’t be going back on Twitter,” Trump said in April. “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.”
The Twitter CEO shared a meme signifying the position Trump is in after his Twitter account has been reactivated.
