The Tesla CEO says he doesn’t agree with all of Trump’s policies, but he really wants to help the president “Make humanity a multi-planet civilization.”
Musk, who probably felt the need to clarify his position after Kalanick faced lots of criticism via the #DeleteUber Boycott for his seemingly tacit support of Trump’s Muslim ban, wrote that he does not agree with the controversial executive order.
Musk’s earlier statements on Trump’s widely criticized policy were understated, to say the least.
The SpaceX head honcho says that he wants to use his position on the council to help steer Trump in the right direction and advancing lofty goals like sustainable energy and space colonization.
“I understand the perspective of those who object to my attending this meeting, but I believe at this time that engaging on critical issues will on balance serve the greater good,” Musk wrote.
