Following news that Tesla CEO Elon Musk had purchased a commanding stake in the social media giant Twitter, Republicans implored the tech superstar to bring back a political superstar: Donald J. Trump. 

The Republican Representative from Colorado tweeted her request directly at Elon Musk, asking him to “lift political censorship” by “bring[ing] back Trump”.

It’s an open question as to whether the former president would want to return to the Twitter platform. Under his leadership, Trump Media and Technology Group created Truth Social: a new platform designed to replace Twitter. The app was launched in February of 2022 on the Apple App Store. The new social media company has been trying to attract more users on the platform, but has been struggling with long waitlist issues. Trump has yet to send a public “Truth” message on Truth Social.
