Elon Musk might be on the fence about Twitter, but he knows exactly where he stands politically … he’s going full Republican.
The world’s richest man says he’s been a longtime supporter of the Democratic party, which he says used to be “the kindness party.” But, he adds, “They have become the party of division & hate, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican.”
Elon blasted out his political declaration Wednesday on Twitter — even as he still mulls buying the platform for $44 billion — which would seemingly muddy the waters surrounding that purchase.
As we’ve reported, Musk believes Twitter can be a flagship of free speech … and has already said he thinks the ban of Donald Trump was misguided, and that he’d let him back on Twitter.
Going public with his new GOP-affiliation will certainly raise more than a few eyebrows … especially at Twitter.
For now, Elon says he’s still doing research on Twitter before he pulls the trigger. As for his political flip — he says he’s now expecting the Democrats to launch a “dirty tricks campaign” against him.
