Elon Musk Reveals Which Republican He Would Support For President, And It's Not Trump

Twitter CEO Elon Musk has voiced his opinion about a potential 2024 GOP presidential contender not named Donald Trump.

In an exchange on the platform on Friday, Musk admitted he was “disappointed” in President Joe Biden after he decided to back him instead of Trump in 2020. Then he was asked about supporting another potential GOP contender, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who just handily won reelection earlier this month.

“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 noted in a tweet on Friday.

When someone asked Musk if he would support DeSantis, Musk replied, “Yes.” He then added, “But Twitter as a platform must be fair to all.”

The Blaze added:

Musk indicated on Friday that if Apple and Google were to ban Twitter from their app stores, he would develop “an alternative phone.” He made the comment when responding to a post in which conservative commentator Liz Wheeler had floated the idea.

“If Apple & Google boot Twitter from their app stores, @elonmusk should produce his own smartphone. Half the country would happily ditch the biased, snooping iPhone & Android. The man builds rockets to Mars, a silly little smartphone should be easy, right?” Wheeler tweeted.

“I certainly hope it does not come to that, but, yes, if there is no other choice, I will make an alternative phone,” Musk replied.

That said, some leftists are already calling on Google Play and Apple to stop offering the Twitter app because that’s what leftists do — they censor and ban people rather than allow them to have their say in the public square.

And, of course, they always justify their tyranny by claiming they are holier than thou and on the ‘side of good.

Apple and Google need to seriously start exploring booting Twitter off the app store,” Harvard Law Cyberlaw Clinic clinical instructor Alejandra Caraballo told the Washington Post’s crybaby Taylor Lorenz. “What Musk is doing is existentially dangerous for various marginalized communities. It’s like opening the gates of hell in terms of the havoc it will cause. People who engaged in direct targeted harassment can come back and engage in doxing, targeted harassment, vicious bullying, calls for violence, celebration of violence. I can’t even begin to state how dangerous this will be.”

Musk has repeatedly noted that harassment and bullying have declined on the platform since he took it over. Also, Lorenz was responsible for “doxxing” the woman behind the Libs of TikTok account.

Caraballo tweeted, “‘Trans people deserve to die’ is a legal statement and any account suspended for saying that could be brought back under the ‘general amnesty.’ This is like opening the gates to hell in terms of hate speech.”

Musk responded, “Incitement to violence will result in account suspension. Currently suspended accounts will be enabled slowly next week after manual review to determine whether they have potentially broken the law or engaged in spam. Twitter will be a forum for the peaceful exchange of views.”
