- The Atlantic’s David Frum faced backlash on Twitter after suggesting the United States government nationalize Elon Musk’s Starlink company to provide free internet to Ukraine during their war with Russia.
- “It was always unreasonable, and is becoming unwise, to expect @elonmusk to provide Internet to Ukraine for free forever. Western allies should pay. And the US should have a plan ready to nationalize Starlink fast if Musk cuts off Ukraine’s connection to advance his political agenda,” Frum tweeted.
- He added, “There’s abundant precedent for US government seizure critical infrastructure during wars or national emergencies. Of course, reasonable compensation must be paid, per the Fifth Amendment to the US Constitution.”
