More than a year after he was banned from most mainstream social networks, former President Donald Trump posted a brief message Thursday to Truth Social, a Trump-founded “non-woke” Twitter alternative that has struggled to overcome glitches—shortly after Trump declared he would not return to Twitter even if given the opportunity following Elon Musk’s planned takeover.

“I’M BACK! #COVFEFE,” the post read, accompanied by a photo of Trump at his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The post was Trump’s second on the platform since it launched more than two months ago, following a February post reading, “Get Ready! Your favorite President will see you soon!”

The post came three days after the former president told reporters he will not return to Twitter even if Musk—whose offer to buy Twitter was accepted by the company’s board Monday—rescinds Trump’s lifetime ban, and promised he would return to Truth Social within a week.
