Elon Musk says he is supporting Ron DeSantis for President if he decides to run. A move that may ruffle the feathers of Donald Trump.
Trump recently announced he would be running for the presidency again in 2024.
On Friday, Musk was asked by a Twitter user if he would support DeSantis if he chose to run. Musk who is now the new CEO of the social media platform responded, “Yes. But Twitter as a platform must be fair to all.”
“As a reminder, I was a significant supporter of the Obama-Biden presidency and (reluctantly) voted for Biden over Trump. My preference for the 2024 presidency is someone sensible and centrist. I had hoped that would [be] the case for the Biden administration, but have been disappointed so far,” he later tweeted.
Musk puzzled many after he told millions of his Twitter followers to vote Republican in the last midterm elections because he’s claimed he’s not conservative. President Biden and other democrats have called him out and requested that the Justice Department look into his foreign business dealings, TMZ reported.
DeSantis has shared the same sentiments toward Musk. He applauded him for giving his Starlink internet satellite technology to Ukraine amid their war against Russia.
