DONALD Trump’s Twitter account has been restored after 15 million voted to bring back the fiery former president, new CEO Elon Musk announced.
“People have spoken,” Musk tweeted, offering Trump an opportunity to return to Twitter after the formerly banned businessman had already launched his own platform, Truth Social.
“Reinstate former President Trump,” Musk wrote in the original poll, with supporters voting “yes” or “no.”
Trump barely squeaked out victory in the viral vote as 51.8 percent of the people voted to bring the leader of the MAGA movement with them.
“Vox Populi, Vox Dei,” Musk wrote, which in Latin means “The voice of the people is the voice of God.”
The poll garnered 134 million views, according to Musk — an understandable metric from the online trickster that continues to grab the attention of the masses with its wild announcements.
After the account was restored, Trump’s follower count skyrocketed as people waited with bated breath to see what happens next.
The former Pres had 88 million followers before his account was suspended over fears he incited violence during the Jan. 6 Capitol riots.
This prompted Trump to develop Truth Social – an alternative social media application where he can freely speak his mind.
Trump, committed to his new project, has previously denied wanting to return to Twitter, but with a third presidential campaign on the horizon, he may be looking to expand his influence.
Trump homecoming rumors swirled as Elon embarked on the rocky journey of taking over Twitter.
The tech billionaire proudly announced his romantic views on free speech and ending persistent censorship, sparking an online debate over whether or not the Republican leader should return.
Those who criticize Trump threatened to leave the platform if his tweets reentered the cultural conversation.
Meanwhile, conservative supporters have been anxious to see Trump back in action.
The House Republican Conference issued a tweet Poking Musk to “free @realDonaldTrump” and unblock the former President’s account.
