Elon Musk doubled his support for Ron DeSantis to win the presidency in 2024: ‘He doesn’t even have to campaign’

Billionaire Elon Musk on Tuesday reaffirmed his support for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in a possible 2024 presidential race, arguing that former President Donald Trump would be too old for the job and predicting that DeSantis would effortlessly defeat President Joe Biden.

“If DeSantis runs against Biden in 2024, then DeSantis will win easily, he doesn’t even have to campaign,” Musk tweeted.

The Tesla and SpaceX CEO said in June that he started voting Republican this year and would likely be back DeSantis if the lawmaker were to enter the race for the White House.

In turn, DeSantis, who has so far refused to confirm a presidential election, has publicly praised Musk’s political support.

Musk also continued his snubs to former President Donald Trump on Tuesday, saying the latter’s age would hurt his effectiveness as U.S. chief executive if he were to be re-elected.

“Trump would be 82 at the end of his term, which is too old to be CEO of anything, let alone the United States of America,” Musk tweeted.

His Tuesday reflection was part of a larger Twitter thread in which he initially encouraged Trump to “hang up his hat and sail into the sunset.” Musk’s comments came in response to a clip of Trump calling the Tesla CEO a shitty artistfor backing out of its deal to buy Twitter.

As a result, a new war of words emerged between the two men this week.

Trump, reacting to Musk’s remarks about him on Twitter, claimed on his own Truth Social social media platform that he could have made Musk seek his help while he was in the White House.

He also blasted Musk’s Tesla and SpaceX, saying the companies are building “electric cars that don’t run long enough, driverless cars that crash, or rockets to nowhere.”

Musk later responded to Trump by again referencing his age, posting a GIF of an elderly “Simpsons” character yelling and shouting out the window.
