Trump says we need to ‘watch’ Twitter owners’ relationships with other countries
Days after the Tesla founder appealed to the public to vote for the Republican candidate in the midterm elections, U.S. President Joe Biden said Wednesday that Elon Musk’s technological ties to other countries need to be reviewed. Biden is a Democrat.
Mr Biden told reporters that Mr Musk’s cooperation with other countries was “remarkable”.
However, he clarified that he was not suggesting that Musk did anything wrong.
“Whether or not he’s doing something inappropriate, I’m not suggesting it. I’m suggesting it’s worth considering. That’s all I’m going to say.” He said, the PTI reported.
When asked how he did it, he replied, “There are many ways.”
Musk bought Twitter last month after a brief court battle with the company. He withdrew his $44 billion offer, claiming the company’s leadership did not disclose the number of his bot accounts.
Within days of taking over Twitter, Musk sparked controversy by firing 50% of its employees without notice and charging an $8 fee for Twitter blue ticks.
Many celebrities have quit Twitter since Musk announced the move and actively defended it on social media platforms.
Unfazed, he introduced fees in most countries.
It is not clear if a pricing model has been adopted in these countries.
On Monday, Musk told voters that because the United States has a Democratic president, people should vote Republican.
