Elon Musk has previously said he voted for President Joe Biden. Now, he calls him a ‘damp sock puppet’ and plans to vote Republican after the two have feuded for months.
Even although the Tesla CEO originally voted for Biden, he has confessed that he would vote Republican at the next election.
Biden has continuously excluded Tesla from EV events and has openly praised GM and Ford over the billion dollar company.
President Biden has most recently taken a shot at Musk after he seemingly mocked the 50-year-old’s fascination with outer space. The President was responding to Musk’s comments about the US being in the midst of a recession.
President Biden said:
“While Elon Musk is talking about that, Ford is increasing their investment overwhelmingly,”
“I think Ford is increasing the investment in building new electric vehicles, 6,000 new employees — union employees, I might add — in the Midwest.”
“So, you know, lots of luck on his trip to the moon.”
Musk has previously thrown shots at the President after he met with execs in Ford and GM in relation to EV, failing to invite Tesla.
“I meant it when I said the future was going to be made right here in America. Companies like GM and Ford are building more electric vehicles here at home than ever before,”
“Starts with a T, Ends with an A, ESL in the middle,”
“Biden is a damp [sock] puppet in human form,”
