Earlier, Musk recommended that people vote for a Republican Congress, stating that the presidency is democratic. Taking to Twitter on Monday, Musk made the declaration and said that it is best for there to be two political parties in power, pointing out Joe Biden who holds the position in the White House for the Democrats. “To independent-minded voters: Shared power curbs the worst excesses of both parties, therefore I recommend voting for a Republican Congress, given that the Presidency is Democratic,” Musk said in a tweet.

“Hardcore Democrats or Republicans never vote for the other side, so independent voters are the ones who actually decide who’s in charge!” he further added. Notably, Musk vowed to vote Republican in May earlier this year. Elon Musk’s endorsement for Republicans comes a week after he took over Twitter and began making massive changes to the micro-blogging platform.
