Joe Biden, while responding to a question, said that Musk’s foreign ties should be investigated thoroughly. He did not blame him directly for anything but only urged in the heat of the moment to scrutinize Elon Musk’s foreign ties with other countries.
A Threat To National Security
When asked about if the US president believed that Elon Musk was a national security threat, he responded by saying that “I’m not suggesting” if he is a threat but “relationships with other countries are worthy of being looked at,”. He also mentioned that there are a lot of ways that can be done. By foreign ties, Joe Biden meant Prince Alwaleed bin Talal and Kingdom Holding Company of Saudi Arabia, for being the second largest investors in Twitter.
Joe Biden was criticized for his remarks against Elon Musk by the conservatives. Elon Musk also tweeted to support conservatives instead of democrats in the ongoing midterm elections.
