Magnate Elon Musk, the main shareholder of electric car company Tesla, met with members of US President Joe Biden’s administration this Friday to discuss how to promote the development of this type of vehicle.
White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre told the press that she spoke with Mitch Landrieu, the infrastructure implementation coordinator, and John Podesta, an adviser on clean energy innovation.
Their discussion focused on electrification in the automobile industry and how legislation can contribute to reducing inflation, an ambitious fiscal and climate program that seeks to increase the collection of top income and invest millions of dollars in the green transition Is.
Jean-Pierre pointed out that the scope of the meeting reflects the importance that the President believes that infrastructure and inflation reduction laws can have in this regard.
The White House spokeswoman concluded, “I think it’s important that (Biden) met with senior members of the team, Elon Musk.”
The owner of Twitter also limited himself to confirming on the social network that the meeting had taken place.
Musk spoke with Democratic and Republican leaders of the House of Representatives in Washington on Thursday, a month before a legislative committee held a hearing on Twitter over its handling of a report on President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter.
The South African billionaire met with Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and Democratic Minority Leader Hakeem Jefferies, later saying on Twitter that they discussed how to “make sure” his social network is fair to both.
