(PartiallyPolitics.com) – On Wednesday, billionaire Elon Musk took to X, formerly known as Twitter which is a social media platform owned by him, to announce that he would not be making any political donations to either candidate during this election cycle. 

In his post, he specifically noted that he would not be funding either of the presidential candidates. This announcement came only a few hours after the end of Super Tuesday when former President Donald Trump won the majority of the races. Following Super Tuesday, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley announced that she would be ending her campaign for the Republican presidential nomination, leaving Trump as the defacto nominee. 

Similarly, President Joe Biden also won over half of the states that were available to be won over in the Democratic primary. With the outcome of Super Tuesday, it became even clearer that the 2024 presidential race was going to end up being a rematch between Biden and Trump this November. 

Following the release of Musk’s statements many X users questioned him, with one pointing out that they did not believe he would not be funding either campaign.

However, another user pushed for people and businesses to remain neutral in the election

A different user questioned whether Musk’s recent comment also included independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. 

Similarly, whistleblower Edward Snowden, a former National Security Agency contractor who now resides in Russia pointed out that there are more than two candidates. 

On Tuesday the New York Times reported that over the weekend there was a meeting between Trump and Musk in Florida, which is likely related to Trump trying to fundraise for his campaign.
