MESSAGE: Elon Musk reveals who he is currently backing for president in 2024.
Elon Musk’s political views have been of interest to a lot of people since he announced his intention to acquire Twitter.
Published on 17.6.2022
Musk has repeatedly hinted at his shift to the right, including a meme he posted last month criticizing the radical left and saying he identifies with the right of center based on the current political climate.
Last night Mr DeSantis said he voted for Maya Flores in the special election for Texas’ 34th congressional district. She won her race yesterday in a district that voted for Joe Biden by double digits in 2020.
Musk admitted it was his first time voting for a Republican.
After saying he voted for Flores, he revealed who he currently supports for the presidency in 2024.
1: What are you leaning towards?
Response from E. Musk:
“Ron DeSantis appears to be winning the primary from Elon Musk.
In a Twitter thread where Musk, the world’s richest man, worth an estimated $205 billion, discussed midterm politics and the fact that he voted Republican for the first time in Tuesday night’s primaries, he said DeSantis is currently the one he would support for president in 2024.
Musk was asked Wednesday morning by a Twitter user called “Tesla Owner Silicon Valley” if he would vote Republican in the presidential race, to which Musk replied “tbd.”
“What are you leaning towards? “, continued the user.
“DeSantis,” he replied.
DeSantis swept the 2024 questions, but in nearly every early 2024 straw poll, he finished first or second when competing only with former President Donald Trump, while the rest of the potential GOP 2024 field lags behind by wide margins. »
DeSantis reiterated that he does not currently plan to run for president in 2024, saying he is “focused on 2022.” He did, however, say he was happy with the support of Musk, whom he jokingly referred to as “African-American” because Musk was born in South Africa.
