From Conroe, Texas Saturday night, Former President Donald Trump warned of country-wide mass protests if prosecutors continue coming after him.

Despite Elon’s Twitter Takeover, Trump Says He’s Staying With Truth Social

Speculation is rampant about whether Elon Musk will invite former President Donald Trump back onto Twitter once the Tesla CEO takes the reins.

Trump recently had said he did not want to go back, even if invited. And the 45th president sort of underscored that point on Thursday by issuing a comment on Truth Social, his own social media platform.

“I’M BACK! #COVFEFE” Trump issued along with a photo of himself using his phone on the expansive lawn of his Mar-a-Lago resort home in Palm Beach.

As The Washington Examiner noted, that was just Trump’s second message on Truth Social since the platform launched in February.

The Examiner also pointed out that Trump revived the nonsensical “covfefe” tweet from 2017.

“Presumed to be a typo, Trump and his team leaned into the fascination that followed, even with the tweet getting deleted,” the Examiner recalled.

“Who can figure out the true meaning of ‘covfefe’ ??? Enjoy!” Trump said at the time in another tweet later on, according to the Examiner. Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer said at the time, “The president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant.”

Earlier this week, after the Musk deal was announced, Trump told Fox News, “I am not going on Twitter. I am going to stay on TRUTH [Social].”

 “I hope Elon buys Twitter because he’ll make improvements to it, and he is a good man, but I am going to be staying on TRUTH.”

In response to that, Musk tweeted, “Truth Social (terrible name) exists because Twitter censored free speech.”

Twitter booted Trump off its platform after the Jan. 6, 2021, riot, and asserted a lifetime ban.

At the time, Trump had arguably done as much as anyone to popularize the social media outlet.

When he became a presidential candidate in 2015, Trump claimed 2.98 million followers on Twitter. When he was banned after the Capitol riot, he had 88.7 million.

CNN reported that he had tweeted more than 25,000 times as president – a rate of at least 17 a day.
