Former President Donald Trump tweeted a message for the first time in more than two years, breaking his long silence on the social platform, TechCrunch reports.
The reason for Trump’s first tweet since January 8, 2021, is his arrest in Atlanta on 13 felony charges related to election interference in the state of Georgia.
The former president, who is seeking re-election in 2024, tweeted shortly after his arrest photo went viral on social media.
Here’s what Trump wrote:
“I was ARRESTED today in the notoriously violent Fulton County Jail in Georgia, even though I have committed NO CRIME. If you can, please make a contribution to get Crooked Joe Biden out of the White House and SAVE AMERICA during this dark chapter in our nation’s history.”
Trump matched the call to action with the words “ELECTION INTERFERENCE, NEVER GIVE UP!” and a photo of himself that caused a furor on social media yesterday.
Musk, a day after promoting Trump’s interview with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson, retweeted Trump with the words “Next Level”.
Musk’s endorsement has led consumers to question what the entrepreneur’s next move will be and whether he has any intentions of going into politics.
