Joe Biden Wishes Elon Musk ‘Many Wishes On His Journey To The Moon’

President Joe Biden shrugged off reports on Elon Musk that the mogul has a “super bad feeling” about the US economy.

Asked about Musk’s purported views, a sarcastic Biden told a news conference Friday: “Many congratulations on your trip to the moon.”

The president’s remarks came hours after Reuters reported that Musk told Tesla executives he wanted to ax 10% of the automaker’s 100,000-person workforce because of his gloomy outlook on the future of the economy.

When asked about Musk’s scrawny outlook — as well as similar pessimism from JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon — Biden took a more optimistic tone and touted recent investments from other automakers.

“While Elon Musk is talking about that, Ford is ramping up its investments,” Biden said Thursday, citing Ford’s announcement that it would add 6,200 factory jobs in Michigan, Missouri and Ohio. making plans.

“Thank you sir!” Elon Musk replied.

Biden also touted new manufacturing investments from Chrysler parent Stelantis and computer chipmaker Intel before taking on a lunar-themed job at Musk.

In response to a clip of Biden’s comments on Twitter, Musk wrote, “Thank you Mr President!” and included a link to a 2021 NASA press release about the space agency selecting SpaceX to work on a future lunar mission.

Musk has been a vocal critic of Biden in the past, claiming that Biden favors automakers such as Ford and General Motors because they have been “captured by unions” that represent workers in their factories.

He has also criticized the President for “not doing much” and has even compared him to “Anchorman” character Ron Burgundy because of his use of the teleprompter.
