One of Musk’s early goals will likely be restoring the account of former President Donald Trump, who was permanently banned from Twitter for his part in promoting the Jan. 6 insurgency.

And Musk and Trump have a fairly amicable history, with the former President hailing Musk as a “genius” and Musk publicly agreeing with Number 45 on everything from Covid lockdowns to lunar exploration.
