Former President Donald Trump is considering having Tesla CEO Elon Musk serve in an advisory role if Trump reclaims the White House, according to a new report.

In March, Trump and Musk met at the estate of conservative billionaire investor Nelson Peltz along with other wealthy investors;

Musk would reportedly advise Trump on issues such as border security and the economy, according to sources referenced by The Wall Street Journal. Musk and Peltz have also reportedly informed Trump about their intentions to fund a data-driven project to prevent voter fraud, and told him of a current influence campaign by Musk and others to convince business leaders to eschew support for President Biden’s re-election campaign.

“Trump has told Musk, one of the world’s wealthiest people, he wants to find a way to get him more involved if he wins in November,” the Journal reported.

Musk’s political sentiments have included slamming the “woke mind virus,” tweeting in December 2022, “The woke mind virus is either defeated or nothing else matters,” as well as tweeting in May 2022 that he would vote for the GOP, “In the past I voted Democrat, because they were (mostly) the kindness party. 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.”

In November 2023, Musk warned, “The scale of illegal immigration across the US southern border is staggering.”


In July 2020, Musk issued two tweets criticizing the Left. The first likely confounded members of the Left confident that their support for attacks on America, whether physical (riots, looting) or philosophical (the 1619 Project) was shared by everyone in the so-called center of the political spectrum. Musk tweeted, “The left is losing the middle.”

Musk sent another tweet 25 minutes later attacking the father of communism, Karl Marx, writing succinctly, “Das Kapital in a nutshell,” followed by a picture of Marx with the statement in quasi-German, “Gib me dat for free.”

In May 2020, Musk famously tweeted, “Take the red pill.”

In the film “The Matrix,” the hero, Neo, is offered a choice between a red pill and a blue pill; the red pill would free him from a dream world imposed on humanity and let him see reality. Some conservatives aver that taking the “red pill” means for a former liberal or leftist to embrace the conservative philosophy. As an opinion piece in Fox News explained in 2017:

The mainstream media failed to see the rise of Donald Trump in 2016. Now it’s overlooking another grassroots movement that may soon be of equal significance— the growing number of liberals “taking the red pill.” People of all ages and ethnicities are posting YouTube videos describing “red pill moments”—personal awakenings that have caused them to reject leftist narratives imbibed since childhood from friends, teachers, and the news and entertainment media.
