Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Friday overthrew the Biden administration and Democrats Twitteras the richest man in the world has doubled his promise to vote for Republicans.

Musk on Twitter accused the Biden administration of doing “everything it can to see” and ignoring Tesla, despite its dominance in the electric car industry.

Musk, who is making increasingly serious attempts to buy Twitter for $ 44 billion, on Thursday suggested Democrats would target him with a slanderous campaign after he announced he would vote for Republican candidates.

“In the past, I voted for the Democrats because they were (mostly) a party of kindness. But they became a party of division and hatred, so I can no longer support them and will vote for the Republicans,” Musk wrote on Thursday.

“Now look at how their nasty campaign against me unfolds,” he wrote, concluding his emoji tweet with “popcorn.”

A few hours later on Thursday, Business Insider has published a grand report accusing in detail that Musk had opened his genitals to the flight attendant of a private plane when he asked her to do a full body massage during a SpaceX flight to London. The report says he offered to buy her a horse for agreeing to his alleged sexual requests.

Musk denied the woman’s claims. Insider reported that they were described in detail in a written statement from her friend filed to confirm the woman’s complaint to SpaceX’s human resources department.

But neither Musk nor SpaceX denied Business Insider’s report that the aerospace firm he founded and operated paid the woman $ 250,000 in severance pay in exchange for her silence after she complained about his behavior.

Musk tweeted: “Attacks on me should be viewed through a political prism – this is their standard (contemptuous) textbook – but nothing will stop me from fighting for a good future and your right to freedom of speech.”

On Thursday, after Musk tweeted waiting for a “campaign of dirty tricks against me” after his announcement that he would vote for a Republican, Democratic podcast John Favreau opened the mask in response.

“Hey, man, if you want to support a bunch of climate advocates who hate electric vehicles, that’s your business,” wrote Favreau, who was a speechwriter for the former president. Barack Obama.

“I’m not sure it helps the cause you’ve and your team dedicated most of their lives to, but I guess you’ll get some attention on Twitter, so here’s what!” Favreau wrote.

Musk responded on Friday, writing, “Hello, John! You’re a good dude, but probably a solid demo, so you need to support the party, but this administration did its best to reject and ignore Tesla, even though we did twice as much EV than the rest of the U.S. industry combined. ”

Earlier this week at the All-In summit in Miami, Musk said he would classify himself as “moderate, neither Republican nor Democrat”, who in the past “overwhelming majority” voted for Democrats.

“Perhaps I would never have voted for a Republican. Now this election? I will, ”Musk said at the event.

“The Democratic Party is overly controlled by trade unions and litigation lawyers, especially collective redress lawyers,” he said.

White House officials did not comment immediately.

Mask’s conversation with the Biden administration has been going on since August last year. He was not invited to the presidency Joe Bidena decree signing ceremony urging automakers to sell more electric cars, but executives with General Motors, Ford and Chrysler were.

“Yes, it seems strange that Tesla was not invited,” Musk tweeted.

In February, it was reported that Biden had no immediate plans to invite Mask to a White House meeting with corporate leaders.

That same month, Musk told CNBC in emails that Biden was ignoring Tesla for paying attention to old automakers.

“The notion of hostility is not entirely correct. Biden clearly ignored Tesla at every turn and falsely told the public that GM was leading the electric car industry when in fact Tesla released more than 300,000 electric cars last quarter and GM released 26,” Musk said at the time. in an email.

Last month, Musk, GM CEO Mary Barr and other top automotive executives met with senior Biden administration officials about electric car charging stations.
