Tech giant Elon Musk Wednesday announced on X that he would “not be donating to either candidate” for the Presidential elections of 2024″ but it’s not only money that Musk can give to Trump.

Philip Bump, in an opinion piece for The Washington Post, argues that Musk’s denial of financial funding to Trump does not mean that he won’t eventually donate to Trump. It just means that straight-up asking probably isn’t the way to go.

Philip adds: “Musk doesn’t want Trump to be able to say that the Tesla CEO is on his team.” The X owner wants to make it look like Trump is on his side. Similar to how he was able to get Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) to announce his presidential candidacy on X. 

Philip argues that Musk contributes to Trump’s campaign daily by propagating fringe-right rhetoric about immigration to millions of X users that makes Trump’s stated positions seem less extreme.

Trump, in a bid to assure financial support for his upcoming re-election campaign, reportedly met Musk in Florida over the weekend.

However, later, tech giant Elon Musk took to X on Wednesday to clarify that he is not donating to any candidate for the Presidential polls in November 2024.
