‘I Welcome Support From African-Americans’: DeSantis Responds To Elon Musk’s Name-Drop


Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis on Wednesday responded to comments from tech billionaire Elon Musk — who revealed he was leaning toward supporting DeSantis in the 2024 presidential race — by saying he welcomes “support from African-Americans.”

Musk, who is white, was born in Pretoria, South Africa, in 1971. He became an American citizen in 2002, thus technically making him an African-American.

“I’m focused on 2022,” DeSantis said at a press conference, “but with Elon Musk, what I would say is you know I welcome support from African-Americans. What can I say?”
