Elon Musk calls on Americans to vote Republican

Elon Musk on Monday called on Americans to vote for the Republican Party in the midterm elections on Tuesday, in the name of the balance between executive and legislative powers. “Power sharing limits the worst excesses, so I recommend voting for a Republican Congress, given that the presidency is a Democrat,” the new Twitter boss tweeted to his 114 million followers.

Elon Musk clarified that he was addressing “independent-minded voters”, the only ones in his view able to tilt the majorities in Congress.

A possible political use of Twitter

This vote recommendation from Elon Musk will not fail to fuel concerns among Americans who fear a possible political use of the social network by the billionaire. The boss of Tesla and SpaceX promised that Twitter would remain politically neutral and that all opinions could be expressed there.

The Americans will vote Tuesday for the midterm elections, in order to renew all the seats of the House of Representatives, more than a third of the Senate and about thirty governorships.
