Former President Donald Trump has produced his first ad after announcing that he would campaign for president again and it is fantastic.
“Make an entrance. Make a run. And then, make history,” the narrator said to start the ad as photos of the former president appeared on the screen. “Make a difference. Make good on your word,” the ad said. “Make it bigly. But most of all, make it great again. Trump.”
The video was more subdued than a normal video from the former president as it showed photos from his 2016 presidential rallies and his time in the White House.

But on Truth Social, he showed another ad that highlighted more of his humor.
“Hi, perhaps you recognize me: it’s your favorite president,” he said in the video in which “God Bless The USA” by Lee Greenwood played.
The video showed humorous things that the former president said, and showed video clips that represented his supporters cheering for him. But it also showed a visual of how people who are against him respond when he speaks.
The video was shared on Twitter by Republican Arizona candidate for governor Kari Lake who said “We need him now, more than ever.”

President Donald Trump has responded as Twitter CEO Elon Musk decided to reinstate his account.
“I don’t know if you’ve been following but Twitter is blowing up today. Elon Musk posted a poll that had over thirteen million responses so far asking whether or not you should be reinstated on Twitter. My question to you is what do you think about Elon Musk buying Twitter and if you are reinstated, will we see you back on Twitter again?” a host of the Republican Jewish Coalition said to the former president.
“Well, I like that he bought it. I’ve always liked him. I get along very well during my days as president and got to know him pretty well, but I do like him. I’ve always really … he is a character and I tend to like characters, but he is smart,” the former president said.
“He did put up a poll and I hear it is very overwhelming, very strong, but I have something called … If you look it is Trump owned, but it’s really fantastic, Truth Social and Truth Social is through the roof. It’s doing phenomenally well,” he said.
“The press hates to talk about it, but it’s doing phenomenally well. I think engagement is much better than is with Twitter and it’s taking care of voices that really want to be taken care of, and really smart voices, brilliant voices. Voices that in many cases are both sides. But I can tell you, there’s a lot of voice for Israel lot of power for Israel in Truth Social, so Truth Social has been very, very powerful, very, very strong and I’ll be staying there, but I heard we’re getting a big vote to go back on Twitter. I don’t see it because I don’t see a reason for it,” the former president said.
“They have a lot of problems at Twitter. You see what’s going on, it may make it. It may not make it, but the problems are incredible, the engagements are negative, and you have a lot of bots, and you have a lot of fake accounts, which I think they should get on. But Truth Social has taken the place for a lot of people and I, don’t see them going back onto Twitter,” he said.
That was not the same as when he insisted he would never go back to Twitter.
It came just before the poll started by Musk ended on Saturday and the former president won.
After more than 15 million votes have been cast, former President Donald Trump has won and will have his account reinstated on Twitter.
Twitter CEO Elon Musk made the announcement on Saturday after Trump won a poll on the app by around 52 percent of the vote.
“Trump will be reinstated. Vox Populi, Vox Dei (which in Latin means the voice of the people (is) the voice of God),” he said.
The people have spoken.
Trump will be reinstated.
Vox Populi, Vox Dei. https://t.co/jmkhFuyfkv
