Miami Mayor Francis Suarez invited Elon Musk to move Twitter’s headquarters to his city during a new interview.
Suarez, a Republican, extended the invite during remarks on “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Sunday morning.
“So the pitch is you want to move to the city with the lowest taxes, lowest crime rate, best quality of life that embraces success,” Suarez said.
The mayor promoted his city as the ideal place for people to fulfill the American dream.
“We believe that the American dream is one where people can do whatever it is that they want to do and be successful. That’s not something you should be ashamed of, it’s not something you should, you know, you should run from or hide from. And so I think that’s one of the things that’s made Miami so unique,” Suarez stated.
The mayor added that if Musk moved Twitter to Miami, it would be “a perfect sort of icing on the cake.”
The interview doubled down on Suarez’s original request to Musk earlier in May, as reported by The Los Angeles Times.
“We’d love to have Twitter here,” Suarez said during an interview at a Bloomberg Power Players event in Miami, according to the outlet. “We think what he is trying to accomplish with Twitter dovetails very nicely with the brand of the city of Miami.”
During a recent Fox Business interview, the mayor also said that his city represents a place of freedom.
“I think what the predominant sort of message is: Miami is a place of freedom, a place where people fled oppression,” Saurez stated.
Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis applauded Musk’s recent Twitter purchase but did not comment on the probability of the company moving to his state.
“.@elonmusk’s offer to buy Twitter is a good deal for shareholders and raises the prospect that the platform will be a place where free speech can thrive, not a tool for narrative enforcement,” DeSantis wrote.

Miami is not the only location to invite Musk to move Twitter’s headquarters.
One Texas landowner offered Elon Musk 100 acres of free land last month as an incentive for him to move Twitter to the Lone Star State.
Jim Schwertner, CEO of Schwertner Farms, offered up the prime real estate just 38 miles north of Austin.
“Elon Musk, Move Twitter to Schwertner, TX. 38 Miles North of Austin in Williamson County, and we will give you 100 Acres for FREE,” Schwertner tweeted.

Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott also extended an invitation.
“@elonmusk. Bring Twitter to Texas to join Tesla, SpaceX & the Boring company,” Abbott wrote.

Musk has previously moved Tesla’s headquarters from California to Texas, a move Abbott hopes could extend to Twitter.
South Dakota Republican Gov. Kristi Noem was also quick to invite Musk to move Twitter to her state.
“.@ElonMusk, if Twitter is in need of a new HQ, South Dakota is open for business,” she wrote.
