Former President Donald Trump made his debut post his social media platform Truth Social on Thursday, joking about his now famous Twitter typo.
"I’M BACK!" Trump wrote, adding the hashtag "COVFEFE," throwing in the reference to his 2017 tweet: "Despite the constant negative press covfefe."
Trump's first Truth Social post was accompanied by a photo of the former president looking at his phone while standing on an immaculate crochet lawn at his Mar-a-Lago country club in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Trump’s 2017 "covfefe" post garnered more than 100,000 likes and retweets each before it was deleted, turning into a meme that spread across the internet.
After more than a year following the January 6, 2021 riots at the Capitol, and Trump being banned from Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, this marks the former president’s return to social media.
Despite Twitter's recent sale to Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, who has vowed to bring free speech back to the platform, Trump has stated that he will not return even with calls from other Twitter users for the former president’s account to be reinstated.
"I am not going on Twitter, I am going to stay on Truth," Trump told Fox News. "I hope Elon buys Twitter because he'll make improvements to it and he is a good man, but I am going to be staying on Truth."
"We're taking in millions of people, and what we’re finding is that the response on Truth is much better than being on Twitter," Trump said. "Twitter has bots and fake accounts, and we are doing everything we can."
"The bottom line is, no, I am not going back to Twitter."
