(Presidentialwire.com)- After being questioned if the owner of Twitter poses a threat to the nation’s security, President Joe Biden responded by stating that Elon Musk’s international business links are “worth looking into.”
On Wednesday, one day after the midterm elections, President Joe Biden spoke with reporters about the potential repercussions for his party, given that control of both the House and Senate was at stake.
During the time when he was fielding questions from reporters, Jenny Leonard from Bloomberg asked him a question concerning Musk.
“As President, do you believe that Elon Musk poses a danger to the United States? Concerning national security, should the United States, using the resources at its disposal, investigate whether or not the Saudi government was involved in his joint acquisition of Twitter with other foreign governments?” Leonard asked.
Before responding, Biden laughed and remained silent for a considerable amount of time.
He finally stated, “I think that Elon Musk’s cooperation and/or technological contacts with other countries is worthy of being looked at.”
He said he thought that Elon Musk should be held accountable for his actions.
“Whether or not he is doing anything inappropriate – I’m not suggesting that – I’m proposing that it’s worth being looked at and – and that’s all I’ll say.”
Although it has been widely reported that finance from Saudi Arabia and Qatar had a role in helping to smooth Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter, Leonard did not elaborate on the subject.
Earlier this week, Musk encouraged the 115 million people who follow him on Twitter to cast their ballots for Republican candidates on Tuesday.
“To voters with an independent mindset: Shared authority reduces the worst excesses of both parties. Because of this, I propose voting for a Republican Congress,” he added, “provided that the Presidency is held by a Democratic candidate.” Independent voters are the ones who actually decide who is in charge, as die-hard supporters of either the Democratic Party or the Republican Party never vote for the other party. ”
