The Twitter account of the 45th President of the USA, Donald Trump (76), was paralyzed for two years. His profile has been blocked since January 2021, when angry mobs stormed the US Capitol on his behalf. On November 19 last year, Elon Musk (51), Twitter’s new CEO, reactivated the account. Trump hasn’t tweeted since then. Until now, as “NBC News” knows from internal sources.
“Trump will likely return to Twitter. It’s just a question of how and when,” said a Republican who spoke to the broadcaster about private conversations with Trump about returning to the platform. “He’s been talking about this for weeks, but Trump speaks for Trump, so it’s a matter of time what he will do or say.” (chs)
