Appearing on the Fox News program “Varney & Co.” on Wednesday, Trump Media & Technology Group CEO Devin Nunes revealed the 45th President supported Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter prior to the move being announced.

Fox anchor Stuart Varney began the segment with Nunes by asking how Musk turning Twitter around would affect Truth Social?

“We’re all for it,” Nunes responded. “President Trump basically before Elon Musk bought it, actually said to go and buy it because the goal of our company is to build a community where people are in a family-friendly, safe environment.”

The Truth Social CEO continued, “You know, very much different than Twitter and that’s why we encouraged Elon Musk to buy it because someone has to continue to take on these tech tyrants. Donald Trump wanted to make sure the American people got their voice back and that the internet was open, and that’s what we are doing. So, people like Elon Musk doing what he’s doing, we’re definitely in favor of it.”

This interesting revelation by Nunes confirms Musk and Trump are on the same page when it comes to bringing free speech back to a leftist-controlled internet.

With this in mind, it’s no wonder groups run by George Soros and former Clinton and Obama staffers are launching political attacks against the Tesla founder.

On Thursday, the NYT published a hit piece directed at Musk.

In a tweet highlighting the article, the Times wrote, “Elon Musk grew up in elite white communities in South Africa, detached from apartheid’s atrocities and surrounded by anti-Black propaganda. He sees his takeover of Twitter as a free speech win but in his youth did not suffer the effects of misinformation.”

However, as popular podcast host Saagar Enjeti pointed out on Twitter, the article itself detailed Musk’s non-white friends during his youth in South Africa, the fact that his father was an anti-apartheid politician and that he left the country to avoid serving in an apartheid military.

Reformed liberal journalist and author Glenn Greenwald explained that the corporate media attacks on Musk are stereotypical.

“This is the kind of punishment the corporate media doles out to anyone whom they perceive as their enemy and, especially, who opposes the censorship regime on which they rely,” Greenwald wrote. “Reporting on Musk is obviously valid: necessary. This isn’t reporting. It’s deceit and punishment.”

The latest update regarding Musk’s Twitter takeover is that he’s expected to serve as the company’s temporary CEO for a few months following the closing of the deal.

This will give him the opportunity to rid the outfit of employees who may be hostile to the new leadership, to look into the platform’s algorithms, its election-time data and much more.

There most certainly is an information war taking place at this very moment, and if you’re reading this article, you are the resistance!
