Billionaire Elon Musk says he hopes a “less divisive” candidate than Donald Trump will be on the ballot in 2024.

The Washington Examiner reports:

That’s what the Tesla CEO said Thursday while reaffirming his position that Trump should be allowed back on to Twitter. Trump was permanently suspended from Twitter in the days after the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. Twitter, joined by other social media platforms in banning Trump, said the decision was made “due to the risk of further incitement of violence.” Trump has his own platform, Truth Social, where the former president insists he will remain, though its reach isn’t nearly that of Twitter, which Musk has touted as the “de facto public town square” of the digital age.

“Even though I think a less divisive candidate would be better in 2024, I still think Trump should be restored to Twitter,” Musk said in a tweet.

But if Twitter users assumed Musk’s shot at Trump meant he was a fan of President Joe Biden think again. Minutes later Musk tweeted that it was Trump’s very divisiveness that put Biden in the White House.

“Biden’s mistake is that he thinks he was elected to transform the country, but actually everyone just wanted less drama,” Musk said.

Twitter agreed late last month to sell the company for $44 billion in cash to Musk, who plans to take it private, but the deal still needs to be approved by shareholders.

Despite Musk saying he would un-ban Trump if his purchase of Twitter goes through the former president has said he plans to stick to TRUTH Social.

We got Biden because people hated Trump more than they loved America!! We think Biden got in by hook and by crook and we’ll never believe he got 81 Million Votes, never!

I believe that deep down that Elon Musk really likes Donald Trump. He can speak his mind on Twitter or wherever he wants to voice his opinion. If Donald Trump should decide to run in 2024, I predict that Elon Musk might just vote for him. That’s my prediction and I’m sticking to it. Now let’s see him prove me wrong in about 3 years.
