Elon Musk Exposes Biden’s Claim on EV Market During SOTU Speech
I don’t know what it is that Democrats don’t like about Elon Musk. Honestly, I don’t. I guess it has to be because he has so much money.
If he wasn’t doing things with that money to help people then I could see the point that they’re making, but that’s not the case. Elon Musk has done so much for people for years and all the left can do is complain about how much money he has and that he needs to “pay his fair share”.
In reality, Elon Musk just paid the largest amount of taxes in the history of mankind.
They ignore that he did something good by helping Ukraine restore internet connectivity by providing access to Starlink and sent them terminals and satellite dishes to make this possible.
Do you think he charged them for it? Nope.
But there is another thing that they ignore and Joe Biden ignored it entirely on Tuesday night during his State of the Union address.
During his speech on Tuesday evening, President Biden nodded to Ford and its manufacturing in the United States. While the White House has frequently lauded the efforts of Ford and GM, Tesla — the world’s largest electric vehicle manufacturer — has often been omitted. The snubbing may lie in the fact that Tesla is not unionized, as White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki hinted last year when she was asked why Tesla was not invited to an electric vehicle summit in which Ford and GM participated.
On Twitter, Musk again pointed out the White House’s willingness to ignore Tesla’s role in promoting electric vehicles.
“Ford is investing $11B to build electric vehicles — creating 11,000 jobs across the country,” read a post from Biden’s Twitter account as the State of the Union speech concluded. “GM is making the largest investment in its history — $7B to build electric vehicles, creating 4,000 jobs in Michigan.”
“Tesla has created over 50,000 US jobs building electric vehicles & is investing more than double GM + Ford combined,” the billionaire entrepreneur responded as an “fyi to person controlling this twitter.”

It’s just so trashy that they ignore reality. It blows my mind. Tesla created so many more jobs and is the leader in electric vehicles, AND they invested more than the two companies touted by Biden, but he ignores Musk because he’s the richest guy in the world.
