Elon Musk says he can no longer support Democrats, will vote for Republicans

'Democrats can no longer support, vote for Republicans': Elon Musk

It was the latest in a series of Elon Musk tweets expressing dissatisfaction with Democrats.

New Delhi:

Tesla boss Elon Musk said Wednesday that he had voted for Democrats in the past but would now vote for Republicans. Musk said he had previously voted for Democrats “because they were (mostly) a party of mercy.”

“In the past I voted for Democrats because they were (mostly) a party of kindness. But they have become a party of division and hatred, so I can no longer support them and vote for Republicans. Now, look at their dirty tactics campaigning against me. Uncover.” The billionaire tweeted.

It was the latest in a series of tweets from him expressing dissatisfaction with Democrats.

On Wednesday, Musk warned that political attacks against him would “increase”.

The 50-year-old billionaire was a vocal critic of the Biden administration and Democrats for proposing to tax billionaires and offer more tax incentives on union-built electric cars.

The latest tweet follows his earlier statement, when Elon Musk said he would vote for Republicans in this election. “I would classify myself as moderate, not Republican or Democrat. In fact, I have historically voted irresistibly for Democrats. Irresistibly. I probably never voted Republican. Now, this election? I will,” he said.

Musk recently said he would lift the Twitter ban on former US President Donald Trump, a Republican, when he bought the social media platform. He added that Twitter was too left-leaning because it was headquartered in California, a state known for its progressive politics.
