Musk Announces He Would Support DeSantis For President If DeSantis Runs | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Twitter CEO Elon Musk said Friday that he would support Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for president in 2024 should DeSantis decide to run.

    Musk made the remarks on his social media platform in response to a tweet about how the political Left erupted in anger at him letting former President Donald Trump back on the platform after he was banned in January 2021.

    "I'm fine with Trump not tweeting," Musk said. "The important thing is that Twitter correct a grave mistake in banning his account, despite no violation of the law or terms of service. Deplatforming a sitting President undermined public trust in Twitter for half of America."

    "As a reminder, I was a significant supporter of the Obama-Biden presidency and (reluctantly) voted for Biden over Trump," Musk continued. "But freedom of speech is the bedrock of a strong democracy and must take precedence. My preference for the 2024 presidency is someone sensible and centrist. I had hoped that would the case for the Biden administration, but have been disappointed so far."

    Musk then was asked, "Would you support Ron DeSantis in 2024, Elon?"

    Musk responded, "Yes."

    Musk tipped his hat to DeSantis back in June as the candidate that he wants to see become the next president but at the time stopped short of a full endorsement.

    Musk made the revelation after tweeting that he had backed the Republican candidate who made history in south Texas on Tuesday night.

    "I voted for Mayra Flores - first time I ever voted Republican," Musk tweeted. "Massive red wave in 2022."

    When asked online who he was leaning toward supporting for the 2024 presidential election, Musk responded, "DeSantis."

    "I supported Yang last time, but DeSantis has a better chance of winning," Musk later added.

In the most recent Midterms Election, the "Republican Red Wave" turned out to be a "Republican Red Ripple," which, as in all elections, confounded the political prognosticators of what to expect down the governing /political road: What, and who, do you think is best for this meandering Representative Republic in the near future?
  Because they know how to best allocate the public's money back to the right part of the public, the Democrats will NOW always prevail and get my vote.
  With patriotic pragmatism the cornerstone of the best of the Republican Party, they will ultimately save this Constitutional Republic from self-destruction.
  Since the Executive Branch is so important to turn this Representative Republic around, I am still on Team Trump in 2024.
  Since the nation may need a different path to Conservative patriotism in the Executive, I am joining Team DeSantis.
  Because I am entitled to take the government dole, the prevailing favoritism whenever possible, I will support any, and every Democrat candidate.
