Elon Musk sent Twitter users into a frenzy after he asserted he would be voting for Republicans in November’s midterm elections.
The Space X and Tesla founder told a Live podcast at a Miami technology conference that he would classify himself as a “moderate”, “neither Republican or Democrat.”
“I have voted overwhelmingly for Democrats, historically – overwhelmingly. Like, I’m not sure, I might never have voted for a Republican, just to be clear,” Musk said.
“Now this election, I will,” he added.
He further explained his decision, saying, “In the past I voted Democrat, because they were (mostly) the kindness party. But they have become the party of division & hate, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican.”
As CBN News reported, Musk, 50, has an agreement to buy Twitter for roughly $44 billion. He’s buying the platform due to Twitter’s blatant censorship of conservatives in recent years. Still, the end of Twitter’s censorship regime isn’t assured.
Musk says he is “still committed” to buying Twitter after he said last Friday that his plan to buy it is “temporarily on hold.”
He said his deal to buy Twitter can’t move forward unless the company shows public proof that less than five percent of the accounts on the social media platform are fake or spam.
