This revelation came after a meeting between the two at Mar-a-Lago, where Trump expressed uncertainty about receiving either verbal or financial support from the billionaire.

Trump has been vocal in his criticism of electric cars, often citing concerns about battery range, charging convenience, and performance in cold weather. Despite his criticisms, Trump clarified that he is not opposed to electric cars but believes in having a variety of alternative energy sources.

Musk’s potential support for Trump’s campaign was speculated upon following their meeting, with some suggesting that Musk could become a significant financial backer for Trump.

The interaction between Trump and Musk highlights the complex relationship between politics and business, where personal beliefs and financial considerations can influence decisions regarding support for political candidates.
