Elon Musk on Saturday reinstated former President Donald Trump’s Twitter account, which was permanently suspended last year over the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
Love him or hate him, Trump is good at Twitter. But will he ever tweet again?
Musk, the free speech champion and billionaire tech entrepreneur who acquired Twitter last month, organized a poll last week asking users to vote on whether Trump should be allowed back back on the platform.
After a majority of users voted in favor of reinstating Trump, Musk lifted the ban on the former president’s account.
- In honor of Trump’s return, here are some of his all-time funniest tweets.

North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!— Donald J.

Thank you to all of my great Keyboard Warriors. You are better, and far more brilliant, than anyone on Madison Avenue (Ad Agencies). There is nobody like you!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 15, 2020

The ramp that I descended after my West Point Commencement speech was very long & steep, had no handrail and, most importantly, was very slippery. The last thing I was going to do is “fall” for the Fake News to have fun with. Final ten feet I ran down to level ground. Momentum!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 14, 2020

Joe Biden just announced that he will not agree to a Drug Test. Gee, I wonder why?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 28, 2020
Later Saturday, during a video call at the Republican Jewish Coalition’s annual leadership meeting, Trump addressed his potential return to tweeting.
- “I don’t see any reason for it,” the former president said.
