You’ve probably heard by now that Elon Musk stated on Twitter that he’s “leaning toward” voting for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in the 2024 presidential election. During a press conference in Madeira Beach, Florida, DeSantis was able to avoid committing to a 2024 presidential campaign while also providing some much-needed comic relief when asked about Musk’s proposed endorsement.
“I’m focused on 2022, but with Elon Musk, I’d say that I welcome African American support. What do I have to say?” DeSantis joked.
Elon Musk was born in Pretoria, South Africa, before relocating to Canada and the United States. In May, Elon Musk announced that he would be voting for Republican candidates for the first time in the next election cycle.
Naturally, leftists lost their minds over the issue of whether or not Musk may “literally” be considered an African-American and accused DeSantis and Musk, among other things, of racism.
On “The Rubin Report” BlazeTV, Dave Rubin announced that Musk voted for Republican Mayra Flores, who won the 34th District special election in Texas, and stated that a “red wave” would sweep the country in the 2022 midterm elections. He continued by discussing Musk’s promise to support DeSantis in the 2024 presidential race if he wins.
This is not the first time Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has been hit with outrage from Democrats. He was also criticized for passing pro-family legislation that restricts the use of Drag-queen story hour in the story, and was even accused of being a “white supremacist.”
Another controversy involves the Florida governor’s decision to sign a bill that would ban sanctuary cities in the state.
Critics say that the bill will lead to racial profiling and discrimination against immigrants, but DeSantis says it is necessary to keep Florida safe from Democrats’ open border agenda. Which is an agenda that has brought in many millions of people, many of whom are hardened gang members.
