Musk expects WH retaliation for reviving Trump's Twitter account
"Sure as night follows day …" was the response Musk tweeted to a user who suggested the CEO prepares for potential retaliation from the Biden administration.
Twitter's new CEO Elon Musk tweeted on Sunday an agreeing response to a user's tweet which suggested that Musk should prepare for increased attacks and retaliation from the Biden administration following the decision to reinstate former US President Donald Trump's account on the platform.

Despite the ideological weakness of Trump's convictions, as well as the whole of the Republican base, it is likely that the Biden administration may intervene to silence the former President again - mainly because the lack of alternatives to the reckless policies of the Democratic agenda prompts citizens to resort to choosing "the lesser of two evils."
Indeed, the last midterm elections were the object of heated party competition as Republicans were close to winning Congress.
Earlier today, it was reported that Trump's Twitter account was restored after Elon Musk, the platform's new owner, conducted a poll in which a small majority of respondents supported the move, just days after the former US President announced another White House candidacy.
Trump's account was blocked from the network in early 2021 for his role in the January 6 attack on the US Capitol by a mob of his supporters wanting to reverse the 2020 election results.
"The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated," Musk tweeted, shortly after the 24-hour Twitter poll on his account ended.
"Vox Populi, Vox Dei," he wrote, repeating a Latin aphorism he also shared on Friday, which translates as "The voice of the people is the voice of God."

Musk agreed to buy Twitter for $44 billion on October 28 after months of negotiations and legal battles with the company over the number of fake accounts on the social media platform, which the entrepreneur believed was much higher than the company reported.
On October 30, Musk announced that Twitter will potentially be split into various strands where users will be able to rate posts and stage online rows in a distinct created space on the platform, adding that Twitter would form a "content moderation council" with diverse viewpoints to help govern the platform’s policies.
