As of now, Trump’s unwillingness is immaterial. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey indefinitely banned him following the Capitol insurrection on Jan. 6, and a Twitter spokesperson said “nothing has changed” on their end. Still, the ex-president — known for his grudge-holding as much as for his attention-seeking — has been telling people in his orbit that he is done with the site even if allowed back on it, according to two sources familiar with the matter, one of whom has been in regular contact with Trump.
“There’s not a chance in hell he gets back on Twitter. Really, I mean that,” this person said. “He gave them his business, made it the premier app for news, debates and gossip during his presidency and in the end they said ‘Sayonara.’ So no, he has zero interest in rejoining.”
