Donald Trump, the 45th president of the United States, marked his return to X – formerly Twitter – with a mug shot tweet.
The former president had his account suspended shortly after the storming of the Capitol on January 6th. Since then, the suspension on the app has been indefinite with no sign of Trump returning anytime soon.
However, in a surprising turn of events, Donald Trump has made his return to X – the newly launched platform that many consider a Twitter alternative. Trump made his return with a tweet featuring a mug shot of the perpetrator of the Capitol storming, 28-year-old Jacob Anthony Chansley, also known as Jake Angeli.
The tweet was widely shared and confirmed Trump’s return to social media. It also served as a reminder to the public of the perpetrator of the attack, with a caption saying, “We have no tolerance for criminal behaviour.”
The post is just the beginning of Trump’s presence on the platform. He is expected to make more posts on the platform in the near future.
Trump’s return to the platform has been met with mixed opinions. While some believe that the former president is attempting to remain in the public spotlight, others are in agreement that it is important that his message is spread as he continues to influence the political arena.
Trump’s return to X marks a new stage in his post-presidential life. The platform is likely to be a vehicle for Trump to spread his message and influence during this time. Whether or not his return will have an impact is yet to be seen.
