During an interview with OANN Correspondent Caitlin Sinclair, Steve Bannon said close sources informed him Twitter offered Elon Musk a deal when acquiring the company.
“Twitter came back and said we’ll actually knock a couple billion dollars off the price if you commit to two things,” Bannon said.
#1 – Not let Trump and the conservatives back on Twitter that we’ve already banned
#2 – If you allow the management team to stay
“In my understanding, Elon Musk was not prepared to do either one and said no,” Bannon explained.
According to Bannon, Musk did not agree to the offer.

WeLoveTrump reported on Musk appearing closer to acquiring Twitter:
The social media giant officially responded to Musk’s offer to buy out the company for the original price of $54.20 a share.
“We received the letter from the Musk parties which they have filed with the SEC. Our intention is to close the transaction at $54.20 per share,” Twitter’s General Counsel in an email to staff.
“This would remove a major obstacle to closing the deal, which has been in litigation for months over numerous items that Elon Musk has disputed with the company, including the true number of fake accounts/bots,” Trending Politics wrote.
Meanwhile, memes of Trump returning to Twitter have surfaced on social media:

However, Devin Nunes says Musk acquiring Twitter wouldn’t convince Trump to return.
Even if Elon Musk’s latest offer to buy Twitter at his original price quote goes through, former President Donald Trump won’t be going back because of all the problems that are still there, Devin Nunes, the CEO of Trump Media and Technology Group, said on Newsmax Wednesday.
“Can all these Big Tech companies go in and start to cancel him?” Nunes, a former GOP representative from California, asked Newsmax’s “National Report.” “We’ve built our systems from the ground up, so we’re not reliant on any Big Tech at all. Twitter, I’m sure, is using a lot of the Big Tech companies.”
First Musk will have to come up with the cash to spend $44 billion on the purchase, and after that, he’ll have to figure out which tech companies can cancel Twitter “if he doesn’t operate the platform the way the Democrats and the left in this country want him to operate it,” said Nunes.
“Third, he’s got thousands of employees there who hate conservatives, hate anybody that is center-right and are very extreme, so Musk has to deal with that problem, too,” he added.
But while Trump has supported Musk’s takeover bid, “he’s not going to go back to the past … we have established Truth Social against Big Tech … we’re not going to go back to the past … they can’t take us down. They’ve tried.”
