Former President Donald J. Trump is preparing his Twitter comeback.
In November, after holding a vote on Twitter asking if Trump’s account should be revived, Twitter owner Elon Musk decided to reinstate the former president’s account.
It remained unclear, though, if Trump would ever chose to return to the platform.
According to The Associated Press, Trump earlier declared he would never return, even if reinstated, and in response to Musk’s poll on his reinstatement, he replied, “I don’t see any reason for it.”
Then, on Wednesday, a source close to Trump informed NBC News that Trump’s return to Twitter is likely imminent.
“Trump is probably coming back to Twitter. It’s just a question of how and when,” the source said.
“He’s been talking about it for weeks, but Trump speaks for Trump, so it’s anyone’s guess what he’ll do or say or when.”
NBC said that a second unidentified source stated that Trump and his aides had been considering a return to Twitter for weeks and have even “workshopped ideas for his first tweet.”
Trump’s comeback to major social media platforms, however, does not end there.
The former president’s 2024 campaign team is requesting to get his Facebook profile reactivated, according to NBC.
“We believe that the ban on President Trump’s account on Facebook has dramatically distorted and inhibited the public discourse,” the campaign stated in a letter to Facebook’s parent company Meta on Tuesday. NBC stated that it has read the letter.
Democrats oppose the return of Trump on Facebook.

“Following the 2022 midterm elections, we write to urge Meta to maintain its commitment to keeping dangerous and unfounded election denial content off its platform,” Schiff wrote. CONTINUE READING…
