Dorsey spoke about Trump during an interview with NBC "Sunday Today" host Willie Geist, echoing comments he gave during a rare Q&A late last month with website Backchannel.
During the conversation, Dorsey said that it's "really important to hear directly" from those in charge.
"It's really important to hold them accountable," Dorsey said. "And I believe it's really important to have these conversations out in the open, rather than have them behind closed doors."
Twitter executives have said the platform's recent spike to 328 million users overall is due to its increasing political presence, and they've specifically mentioned a Trump bump.
Business considerations aside, Dorsey told Geist it's better to know what Trump is saying. Dorsey said he would rather for people to be "aware of how people are thinking," even if there may be some disagreement.
"So if we're all to suddenly take these platforms away, where does it go? What happens? It goes in the dark," he said. "And I just don't think that's good for anyone."
