Elon Musk says he would support Ron DeSantis for president in 2024

Twitter CEO backs DeSantis

Elon Musk has declared his readiness to support Florida Governor Ronald Dion DeSantis' candidacy for the US presidential election in 2024. The businessman made the announcement on his Twitter page on Friday.

Musk replied in the affirmative when asked if he would support Republican Ron DeSantis in 2024.

CEO from Constellation Research Ray Wang discusses Elon Musk's handling of Twitter amid layoffs and restructuring and reveals that former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe called TikTok a national security threat in Cavuto: Coast to Coast.

Desantis has yet to declare his presidential ambitions, but the possibility of fighting him for the presidential nomination has previously actually been acknowledged by former president, Republican Donald Trump.

In early November, Musk wrote on Twitter, "I myself have always been an independent, although in practice I almost always voted for Democrats until this year".

After tweeting that he would support DeSantis in 2024, Musk said he was voting for President Joe Biden rather than Trump in 2020.

"As a reminder, I was a significant supporter of the Obama and Joe Biden presidencies and voted reluctantly for Biden over Trump," Musk said. "But Twitter as a platform should be fair to everyone."

Musk said in May that he could no longer support the Democratic Party.

It's worth noting that Musk has promised to release his own smartphone model if Apple and Google make the Twitter app unavailable to devices running on those companies' App Store and Google Play shops.

On 27 October, Musk closed a $44 billion deal to acquire Twitter, the company that owns the social network of the same name. The new owner intends to abolish the practice of permanently blocking users and has already attempted to reform the account verification system by introducing a paid subscription. However, its sale was suspended on 10 November due to an increase in the number of fake accounts. Mass layoffs of company employees are also a cause for concern: immediately after the purchase, Musk fired several members of the management team, and after a while he almost halved the staff.
