Musk recently restored the account of former President Donald Trump, who is running again for the White House, prompting left-wing celebrities to call it “a tragic day for America.” He has also unbanned a number of prominent conservative and non-leftist accounts including The Babylon Bee, Andrew Tate, Jordan Peterson, and Juanita Broaddrick.
