After being banned from X (formerly Twitter) in January 2021, former President Donald Trump made his return to the platform on Friday, August 25, 2023.

His first post was a photo of his mugshot from his 2016 arrest for trespassing at the White House.

Trump’s return to Twitter comes after Elon Musk, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO, acquired the company for $44 billion. Musk has said that he wants to make Twitter a more open and free platform for speech, and he has promised to lift the ban on Trump.
