Elon Musk major US politician by Feb 2033?


Elon Reeve Musk, born June 28, 1971, is a serial entrepreneur and business executive. He is the founder, CEO, and Chief Engineer at SpaceX; early-stage investor, CEO, and Product Architect of Tesla, founder of The Boring Company, and co-founder of Neuralink and OpenAI. With an estimated net worth of around US$270 billion as of April 2022, Musk is the wealthiest person in the world according to both the Bloomberg Billionaires Index and the Forbes real-time billionaires list.

In 2022, Musk made an unsolicited $43 billion offer to take social media site Twitter private, citing concerns around free speech on the platform, which he argues is essential to a functioning democracy.

Musk characterises his political views as "somewhat libertarian," says he is "not a conservative... registered independent & politically moderate," and does not clearly align with either the Democratic or Republican party platforms.
