Donald Trump Jr. called on Elon Musk to create his own social media platform that could blow up Twitter and save “freedom of speech in America” as he complained about his father’s constant ban on the microblogging site after the siege of the Capitol in the United States.
Donald Trump’s eldest son hit Twitter for what he called “bias” and “one-way targeted” censorship, and invited the SpaceX boss to create a competing social network that provides a platform for “neural arbitrators”, seemingly categorizing his father. as such.

“Someone like him has the brilliance to come up with something that blows Twitter,” Mr Trump told Mr Musk.
He suggested that the new platform could regulate hate speech or violence, but at the same time provide a platform for neutral commentators and not become a “left-wing organization” that distorts people with conservative thoughts.

He showed horror and shock at Russian opposition leaders who spoke in a recent debate on US technology giants and censorship, saying that “Russians are lecturing America on freedom of speech today. It was so scary. “
“Elon, why don’t you do it.” Go out there and come up with a concept.
