Musk classifies himself as a moderate, “neither Republican nor Democrat,” and has overwhelmingly voted Democrat in the past.
“I might never have voted for a Republican, just to be clear. Now this election, I will.” His comments were met with laughter and applause from the crowd.
“This is not some right-wing take over,” Musk clarified. He described his purchase of Twitter as a “moderate take over and an attempt to ensure that people of all political beliefs feel welcome on a digital town square and they can express their beliefs without fear of being banned.”
