Elon Musk and Bernie Sanders: Tesla CEO and U.S. Senator Argue on Twitter

Musk responded to the criticism on March 21 and tweeted, “I am accumulating resources to help make life multi-planetary and extend the light of consciousness to the stars.”

Sanders replied, “Space travel is an exciting idea, but right now we need to focus on Earth and create a progressive tax system so that children don’t go hungry, people are not homeless and all Americans have healthcare. The level of inequality in America is obscene and a threat to our democracy.”

Musk tweeted in 2019 that he is “openly moderate.” He has donated to campaigns on both sides of the aisle, according to Forbes

The SpaceX founder reflected on his own political leanings in the 2020 Sway interview. He said, “If you’ve got a two-party system, then the problematic issues are going to kind of fall somewhat randomly into one party or the other. It’s not clear to me that there’s a cohesive set of reasoning why these things are on one party versus another.”
