Elon Musk put himself and his politics center stage on Twitter on Election Day.
“The world’s richest man began his day on Tuesday by tweeting to his 115 million followers that they should vote Republican in the midterm elections. He said he was not being motivated by criticism that he has faced from Democrats over his $44 billion purchase of Twitter, which he completed last month, along with his other business dealings.
“While it’s true that I’ve been under unfair & misleading attack for some time by leading Democrats, my motivation here is for centrist governance, which matches the interests of most Americans,” Mr. Musk said.”
David Lindsay: This is upsetting. I have been saving up to buy a new Tesla next year. Now, I will be shopping for one of its new competitors. Trumpsters who insist that the last presidential election was stolen, with no evidence, are conspiracy theory mongereres who do not bring balance to the democracy, they threaten its health, possibly its survival.
