Elon Musk: Democrats 'Have Become the Party of Division & Hate'
'I can no longer support them and will vote Republican,' Tesla CEO announces
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has declared that the Democrats "have become the party of division & hate."
In a statement on Twitter, Musk said he "can no longer support" the Democratic Party.
Musk announced that he "will vote Republican" instead of Democrat from now on.
After revealing that he is flipping from Democrats to the GOP, Musk warned that he will likely come under attack from the Left.
"In the past I voted Democrat, because they were (mostly) the kindness party,” Musk explained in a tweet.
"But they have become the party of division & hate, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican."
"Now, watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold," Musk added.

Musk weighed in on the 2024 presidential election last week, taking shots at Joe Biden while discussing restoring President Donald Trump's account when he takes over Twitter.
"Even though I think a less divisive candidate would be better in 2024, I still think Trump should be restored to Twitter,” Musk wrote on Twitter.
"Biden’s mistake is that he thinks he was elected to transform the country, but actually everyone just wanted less drama,” he added later.
Musk has dominated the news cycle and triggered outrage from the "woke" Left over the past several weeks after his offer to purchase Twitter for $44 billion was unanimously approved by Twitter’s Board of Directors.
However, Musk recently said that the deal had been put “on hold” until he got more information about what percentage of accounts on the platform are spam accounts.
Musk has repeatedly gone after the political Left in recent years for a variety of issues ranging from policy to wokeness.
"[Wokeness] is a prevalent mind virus, and arguably one of the biggest threats to modern civilization,” Musk said late last year.
"At its heart, wokeness is divisive, exclusionary, and hateful.
"It basically gives mean people a reason, it gives them a shield to be mean and cruel, armored in false virtue.”
