Former President Donald Trump was complimentary of Elon Musk during a phone-in interview on One America News Network, insisting that the new Twitter chief has done a “big service” to the nation with efforts to expose what was going on behind the scenes at the social media platform,
Trump would also declare that the U.S. has become a “sad and sick” country in response to a question about the FBI’s interference with the day-to-day operations at Twitter.
“This week Twitter files seven now shows it goes beyond collusion. The FBI, it turns out, was paying Twitter to the tune of $3 million. Would you characterize that payment as an incentive or a bribe?” asked OAN host Chanel Rion.
“Well, I’d characterize it as terrible. Yeah, $3.7 million or something like that, and possibly a lot more, because that’s only what they have right now,” Trump replied. “Uh, no, it’s terrible. I’m just telling you, the country can’t believe what they’re seeing.”
In addition to the FBI playing a significant role in Twitter operations, Fox News host Tucker Carlson just dropped a bombshell report about the CIA being involved in the assassination of John F. Kennedy, citing a credible source — a bombshell that fell on deaf ears with today’s compromised media.
“Elon Musk did a big service when he released all of this stuff,” Trump said of the Twitter files. “Because our country is corrupt. Our elections are corrupt. We have a very sad and sick country — we have a very corrupt country. Who would have ever thought we would have seen the FBI putting their hand on the election?”
He cited a poll suggesting that honest reporting on the Hunter Biden laptop, which the FBI went to great lengths to prevent, would have impacted the vote of many Americans to reiterate his long-held claim that the 2020 election was “rigged.”
“Now, you know, without it, I won this election, but with it, it’s, you know, 20 points. You’re talking about millions and millions and millions of votes,” Trump said. “And I think if they add it all up, 32,000 votes, even by their count, 32,000 is what you needed. This, the pollsters said, this would have had a many millions of votes difference. So they rigged the election. Unbelievable. And people now see it. People now agree to that.”
After an exchange about the FBI likely being just as involved with the other major social media platforms, Rion asked the former president what grade he would give Elon Musk in his takeover of Twitter.
“Well, I don’t know, because I think the price was very high. But I hope that Elon is going to be successful with Twitter,” Trump said. “I think it’s great that he’s releasing this stuff because he’s showing what a corrupt country we’re living in.”
Trump went on to say he believes Musk “probably wanted to step down” as CEO after posting a poll on Twitter asking users to decide his fate, and suggested that there’s much to come in the ongoing Twitter Files release.
“From what I hear, the things that he’s got are even more damning than what’s already been seen in seven and five, and six. It’s even more damning. It’s supposed to be incredible,” he opined, adding that this is a “very important part of his legacy.”
“Would you characterize him as a hero in this regard?” Rion asked.
“Yeah, I’d say he’s a hero. I think that it’s a big part of his legacy,” Trump replied. “I think it’s more important than other things he’s done. And it’s very important he’s showing our country was off the rails and still is. We’ll see whether or not this helps fix it, but the Republicans have to get a lot tougher.”
