Neither Trump Nor Biden, Elon Musk Wants A 2024 Presidential Candidate Who Isn't '8000 Years Old'

By Shivdeep Dhaliwal

Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) CEO Elon Musk said President Joe Biden is mistaken in thinking he was elected to “transform the country.”

What Happened: The entrepreneur tweeted on Thursday that Biden was elected because “everyone just wanted less drama.”

Although Musk said he thinks a “less divisive candidate” would be better in 2024, he maintained that former President Donald Trump’s Twitter account should be restored.

Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE) co-creator Billy Markus said in response to Musk, “I would just like a few options for candidates that aren’t super terrible ... Is that too much to ask?”

Musk replied, “And also younger than 8000 years old!”

Why It Matters: Musk, who is in the process of taking over Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR), last week addressed bans on the social media platform and said he would reverse Trump’s removal.

The billionaire is also reportedly facing a federal probe over violating rules related to disclosure after he obtained a significant stake in the microblogging site.

Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey has backed Musk on reinstating Trump’s account and said the former president's ban while Dorsey was still CEO was a "business decision."

Musk has previously called Biden a “damp [sock] puppet in human form.” Having been snubbed by the Biden administration on multiple occasions, Musk met with its representatives last month along with other auto executives.

Price Action: On Thursday, Tesla shares rose 1.9% in the after-hours session to $741.99 after closing the regular trading 0.8% lower, according to data from Benzinga Pro.
