And a photo of Trump! Haha. Of course! Here’s another dem ran news media outlet! Everything I’ve seen just confirms the hatred and division of our country. By listening to what CNBC and other news outlets talk about It's his right to vote for any GD body he wants to vote for He can vote for whomever he wants. But let’s no pretend this is new.

Longtime Democrat on a Biden win. Fu2 mask!! Mr Musk, Think that your engineering is fantastic, but your political choices display a lack of thought you give your projects. Do you believe that any choices in the future will be available if the Republican laws to allow overturning an election are enacted?

Elon Musk NEVER tweeted anything about Xi during the Shanghai lockdown? Oh, the double Free Speech standard! Also, the problem with a TSLA stock buyback is that most of Tesla's cash is stuck in China and can't leave the country. Talk about hypocrisy. PPPPPPPRRRTTTT!!!!! Elon Trump~ No one in their right mind will vote for liberals sodomy advocates anymore unless they are one of them

Interesting, I always looked at him as a person on the side of innovation and etc.. never boxing himself into a side either way. I guess I was wrong. Don’t get how this benefits him though.

Elon Musk says he'll be voting Republican in upcoming election, possibly for first timeMusk said he has previously 'voted overwhelmingly for Democrats.' Democrats we're cool until they got hi-jacked by China and Russia (I don't have proof, js) Hmmm, trial lawyers and unions are a real big problem for non-billionaires. (Sarcasm) The middle class wants affordable healthcare and financial security. Unions benefit the middle class, but don’t benefit oligarchs.

Lol Democrats want to tax billionaires more. Trump was a Musks fanboy = Musk will use his influence to help republicans win. It makes perfect sense. A billionaire is going to vote Republican. I don't get the headline here? CNBC FEEDING MR ROBOTO... Elon Husk ter news station The way you use Musk photo with Trump, banon. 👌 Superb tactic. You guys are so genuine and unbiased and only run behind the truth.

Elon musk dodged the draft. Perfect fit for the republicans. Who will be running from the democrats? I don’t care. Disappointing news Democrats wanna make everyone poor. Go figure out why he said it? elonmusk

Musk looking much younger and slim I guess only MAGA maggots will buy Tesla cars from now on… Lol, that will be great for Tesla What percentage of Tesla owners are Republican? Good to see that Musk woke up! No need to report this. It's about corporate taxes, right? Taxes and regulations were behind TESLA HQ and Elon leaving CA to TX Why am I not surprised?

I am shocked that an ultra wealthy billionaire narcissist, who was born into wealth, is pledging to vote for Republicans. Shocked I tell ya! elonmusk Elon Musk Trumpcar We’re all with him Could not care less. Money does things to people.

Idk if he votes alien. Who gives a fuck about him. Quit reporting on stuff that isn’t news Lol bruh got money that’s usually what people with money do Musk will think my previous tweet was hate toward him Dude, if U can’t tell fiction from non fiction, people are going 2 point that out I’ve lived 74 yrs Never seen ANYONE as dumb, hateful, and divisive as Trump & the other far rt yokels, including so called rt wing Evangelicals

Screw Musk, if it weren't for OBAMA and California, Musk would not have had the tax advantages for funding or demand by Californias to give him a chance. Once they collect some money their memory fades. That is no loss. The Republican party has turned on the Republic and Democracy ad is increasingly neo-facist. All of which fits Elon's political profile.

Stop it. You are only encouraging the poor man by pouring attention on him. He needs to go back to SpaceX and get our species to Mars before we nuke each other. You are distracting him from that. Let this sink in. He wants more tax break to buy Twitter!! Watch Tesla sales tank. Maga isn’t the cohort buying EV’s

During the show, the CEO stressed that he does not consider himself "right wing," and sees himself as a "moderate.

I might never have voted Republican. Now, this election? I will. According to his own comments, Musk has rarely if ever voted for the GOP, though he has often backed unconventional candidates."
