Billionaire Bill Gates gave his viewpoint of Donald Trump should be allowed back on Twitter, Facebook, and other social media, as long as platforms continue to label any falsities coming from his accounts.

The infamous U.S. Capitol riot had put President Trump under pressure with social media apps and some critics who believed number 45 used the Twitter platform to entice violence in Washington. Trump was soon banned from that app as well as other popular platforms.

Not everyone agreed with Donald Trump’s ban such as Keri Hilson and Immortal Technique who believed the ban may have set a bad precedent for censoring of free speech. Technique also showed the hypocrisy of the big tech companies stating, “Trump is off social media for inciting violence. So for 4 years these big tech guys loved him cuz he was good for business. Now they act? lol Also how long before they decide that I’M inciting violence. There is a long game to consider here”.

Bill Gates has now chimed in on the situation during an interview with CNBC. In an interview with CNBC, Gates predicted whether Trump would ever be welcomed back to Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms, saying, “I think at some point he probably will be allowed back on and probably should be allowed back on.”

After clarifying that social media platforms should continue to label any falsities coming from Trump’s accounts, Gates said, “It’s weird when you’re, you know, saying that the election was stolen without any facts there. And how corrosive that is. But I’ll bet they’ll find a way to let him back on.”
