Elon Musk, Tesla’s CEO, announced on Wednesday that he has no intention of contributing money to the campaigns of President Joe Biden or former President Donald Trump.

“Just to be clear, I am not donating money to either candidate for US President,” Musk stated in a post on his social media platform, X.

Musk’s statement follows The New York Times’ report that the billionaire met with Trump and a group of rich Republican contributors in Palm Beach, Florida, last weekend. The former president resides in Palm Beach at his Mar-a-Lago club.

This announcement comes after Trump and Biden emerged victorious from Super Tuesday, moving closer to a November rematch. Trump secured victories in 12 of the 13 states, gaining substantial support from Republican delegates in California, Texas, North Carolina, and Virginia.

Unraveling Musk and Trump’s Relationship Despite their strained relationship, Trump has praised Musk on various occasions. The Times reported that Trump sought to “shore up his finances” for his run against President Joe Biden during his meeting with Musk in Florida.

At present, the ex-US president faces additional financial burdens due to penalties imposed on him in the business fraud case and E. Jean Carroll’s defamation trial, amounting to hundreds of millions of dollars.

The tumultuous relationship between Trump and Musk began when the SpaceX CEO admitted to voting for Biden in the 2020 elections. As tensions escalated, Musk accused the Biden administration of “treason” and “importing voters” ahead of the November elections.

Musk expressed his concerns on X, stating, “This administration is both importing voters and creating a national security threat from unvetted illegal immigrants. It is highly probable that the groundwork is being laid for something far worse than 9/11. Just a matter of time.”

As Trump seeks to regain political supremacy, Musk’s support may be critical, highlighting both the campaign’s potential advantages and challenges.

Examining Musk’s Relationship with Biden Musk, who has criticized Democrats and their policies, clarified that he is not a supporter of Biden.

Throughout 2022, Musk accused Biden of neglecting his successful electric vehicle enterprise, Tesla, while supporting other automakers and their unions. He urged voters to support a Republican Congress, stating, “Shared power curbs the worst excesses of both parties, therefore I recommend voting for a Republican Congress, given that the Presidency is Democratic.”
