Elon Musk’s Business Ventures Not Undergoing National Security Review: White House

  • Reports that the Biden administration is mulling a national security review of Elon Musk’s business ventures, including SpaceX’s Starlink funding in Ukraine and his plans to acquire Twitter, are not true, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Monday.
  • “Those reportings are not true, so we’ll leave that there,” Jean-Pierre told reporters. “The national security review – that is not true.”
  • Bloomberg reported last week that U.S. officials are concerned about the SpaceX CEO’s behavior after he threatened to pull the plug on Starlink funding in Ukraine unless the Pentagon provided funds for the service.
