President Joe Biden recently noticed Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and new owner of Twitter, has a unique relationship with other countries.
He also says Musk’s relationship is worth looking into.
However, Biden declined to specify how.
At a Wednesday conference in the White House, the president shared his thoughts on Elon Musk as a threat to the United States.
Interviewers brought up the joint acquisition of Twitter by Musk and foreign governments.
“Elon Musk’s cooperation and/or technical relationships with other countries is worthy of being looked at,” said President Joe Biden.
“Whether or not he is doing anything inappropriate – I’m not suggesting that.”
“I’m suggesting it’s worth being looked at, and that’s all I’ll say.”
Conversely, Elon Musk is not a fan of the US President.
The new Twitter owner actively criticizes Democrats on his social media accounts.
Throughout the year, Musk accused President Joe Biden of neglecting his electric vehicle company despite Tesla’s success.
Instead, Biden would prefer the old automakers and their union.
As a result, Elon Musk pledged to vote for the Republicans.
National security reviews
Before Musk completed the $44 billion acquisition, Bloomberg reported that Biden administration officials discussed putting his operations to national security reviews.
According to CNN, the Biden administration dismissed the report, citing people familiar with the matter.
National Security Council spokeswoman Adrienne Watson said: ‘We do not know of any such discussions.’
According to a Treasury Department spokesperson, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States does not comment publicly on transactions it may or may not review under law and practice.
Additionally, several foreign companies and investors have pledged to help Musk fund the deal, including Qatar’s sovereign wealth fund and Prince Alwaleed bin Talal of Saudi Arabia.
Prince Alwaleed bin Talal was one of Twitter’s most prominent investors.
