It’s not every day that one of the most influential business leaders in the world speaks out on political issues, but that’s exactly what happened this week when Twitter owner Elon Musk spoke out about the 2020 presidential election.
In a recent interview with CNBC’s David Faber, Musk expressed his opinion that President Joe Biden legitimately won the election, and that while there was likely some fraud, it was minimal and made no impact on the outcome.
However, he also expressed his disappointment with the current political system, saying, “I wish we could have just a normal human being as president. That’s what I want.”
When asked if he was happy with Biden’s presidency, Musk responded, “Don’t we all just want a normal human being to be president?”
Despite his dissatisfaction with the current political climate, Musk still believes that Biden won the election. He said, “I don’t think it was a stolen election.”
But when it comes to voter fraud, Musk believes that it does exist, but that it is minimal and would not have made a difference in the outcome of the election. He said, “If 100 million people vote, the probability that the fraud is zero is zero. There’s gonna be a little.
I think it’s important to say like that in any given election, even if you try your hardest, if you got 100 million votes, there’s gonna be some amount of fraud that is not zero. And that it’s important to acknowledge that without saying that the fraud was of sufficient magnitude to change the outcome.
So, my opinion would be that there was some, there was some small amount of fraud, but it was not enough to change the outcome.”
Musk also spoke out about the role of social media in the election, saying, “That [Hunter Biden laptop story] was a pretty big deal.
There was Twitter and others engaged in active suppression of information that was relevant to the public…That’s a terrible thing that happened. That’s like an interference.”
The 2020 election has been a source of much controversy and debate, and with the influence of social media and the prevalence of conspiracy theories, it’s important to remember that we should remain skeptical of claims made by either side and instead focus on the facts.
While we may never know for sure if the election was truly “stolen” or if voter fraud did occur, what we do know is that the outcome of the election was a legitimate one and that the majority of Americans voted for Joe Biden to be their next president.
Ultimately, it’s important to respect the outcome of the election and to focus on the issues that are important to us as a nation. We should strive to make sure that our leaders are competent and capable of making decisions that benefit the majority of citizens, not just a few.
