After Wallace asked if there could be negative ramifications with Trump loyalists going “underground,” Cook replied “Well, we’ve only suspended them, Chris. And so, if they get their moderation together, they would be back on there.”
Meanwhile, appearing with Tucker Carlson, Parler CEO John Matze said the controversy has also come with threats to his life.
