ERIC BOLLING (HOST): Now, Trump since the merger announcement has said he will stay on Truth Social and he will not go back to Twitter, even though there's, you know -- it's vastly bigger right now. What are your thoughts on this?

PETER NAVARRO (GUEST): Eric, my advice, strong advice to the boss to get back on Twitter, not Facebook, but Twitter. Okay, hear me out here. Going forward, there's an emerging softwares, Eric, which allow you to integrate all of your social media platforms, so that if you have one message, you can put it through that software and it goes out to all. So if you are on Gettr, Parler, Twitter, you can do one post and off it goes. And, legally, from a person like the boss who's trying to reach as many Americans as possible with his messaging, that's the way to go. In other words, to escape to where the puck is going to be in this new world. You wouldn't want to get on Facebook because you don't want to give Zuckerbucks any more bucks. But I think that just narrowly staying on his own platform would be a really nearsighted way of focusing on the monetary interest rather than the public interest.


NAVARRO: Look, social media is today's nuclear weapon in politics and the thing I'm concerned about with Elon Musk – everybody hails him as the great, you know, white knight here – he's bought and paid for by the Chinese Communist Party. And I worry at one point that Twitter might be compromised in the middle of a political campaign by China threatening Musk's Tesla production in communist China. So, I'm not I'm not ecstatic over the moon like some people are about Musk. I don't, frankly, I don't trust the guy.
