Musk Returns Biden Snub, Won’t Vote For Joe After EV Insult

Won't Vote For Joe After EV Insult

  • Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and owner of X (formerly Twitter) says his opposition to President Biden in his re-election bid is mainly due to his bitterness over a White House snub in 2021.
  • During a 90-minute appearance at the New York Times DealBook Summit, Musk’s profane taunts of advertisers made headlines, but his views on Biden also were noteworthy given his vast resources and influence.
  • “Without doing anything to provoke the Biden administration, they held an electrical vehicle summit at the White House and specifically refused to let Tesla attend,” Musk said. “This was in the first six months of the administration. We inquired. ‘We literally make more electric cars than everyone else combined. Why are we not allowed?’”
  • Musk added, “This was in the same quarter that Tesla made 300,000 electric cars and GM made 26. Does that seem fair to you?”
