Elon Musk says that Joe Biden only beat one-term president Donald Trump within the 2020 election because “everyone just wanted less drama.”
The Tesla boss took to Twitter to speak politics and said that Mr Biden had made a “mistake” in pondering he had been elected to “transform the country.”
“Biden’s mistake is that he thinks he was elected to remodel the country, but actually everyone just wanted less drama,” Mr Musk tweeted.
The billionaire then said he wants a “less divisive” candidate than Donald Trump at the subsequent US election, despite his plans to revive the one-term president’s Twitter account.
The Tesla boss gave his view on Mr Trump running for office again, just days after he said he would reverse his Twitter ban once he owns social media company..
“Though I feel a less divisive candidate could be higher in 2024, I still think Trump needs to be restored to Twitter,” tweeted Mr Musk on Thursday.
Mr Trump was banned from the social media platform within the wake of his supporters violently attacking the US Capitol on January 6 2021 to try and forestall the certification of Joe Biden’s election victory.
Mr Musk is on the verge of shopping for Twitter after the corporate’s board accepted his $44bn offer forthe platform which he has said he intends to take private.
The world’s richest person said on Tuesday on the Financial Times’s“Way forward for the Automotive” event that Twitter’s ban of Mr Trump was “a mistake” that he would overturn.
“It alienated a big a part of the country and didn’t ultimately lead to Donald Trump not having a voice,” said Mr Musk.
Mr Trump has not officially confirmed he intends to run for a second term within the White House in 2024, but has openly flirted with the thought at MAGA rallies across the country.
A string of polls have shown that Republican voters prefer Mr Trump over other GOP hopefuls, with Florida governor Ron DeSantis seemingly his strongest challenger for the party’s nomination.
