US President Joe Biden responded lightly to the bleak economic outlook by Tesla CEO Elon Musk and wished him a good trip to the moon in this context. Musk said in an internal email that he had a “very bad feeling” about the economy. He also announced layoffs. So the American group should reduce its workforce by about ten percent.
When asked about it, Biden referred to investments and building new electric cars by rival Ford, and the president also told reporters that this would mean hiring 6,000 employees. “Well, you know, good luck on his journey to the moon.” Musk immediately responded on Twitter with “Thank you, Mr. President!” And a link to a contract from NASA for his space company, SpaceX. .
Musk recently turned to political issues on Twitter, at odds with the Biden Democrats. He wrote in mid-May that he had voted in the past for the party because it was mostly the kindness party. “But they have become the party of division and hatred, so I can no longer support them and I will vote Republican.” Congressional elections in the United States take place in November. Democrats are under pressure, among other things, from relatively high inflation.
