REPORT: Trump considering role for Elon Musk in new administration

It’s being reported today that Trump is considering a role for Elon Musk in this new administration. It would be an advisory role regarding the border and the economy.

Of course this is just a report and nothing is set in stone.

Here’s more from Politico Playbook:

“Inside Donald Trump and Elon Musk’s Growing Alliance,” by WSJ’s Emily Glazer, Robbie Whelan, Alex Leary, Cara Lombardo and Dana Mattioli:

“DONALD TRUMP and ELON MUSK have discussed a possible advisory role for the Tesla leader should the presumptive Republican nominee reclaim the White House, the latest sign that the once-frosty relationship between the two men has thawed.

“The role hasn’t been fully hammered out and might not happen, people familiar with the talks said, but the two men discussed ways to give Musk formal input and influence over policies related to border security and the economy, both issues on which Musk has grown more vocal.

“Musk, along with the billionaire investor NELSON PELTZ, has also briefed Trump on a plan they’ve developed to invest in a data-driven project to prevent voter fraud, according to some of the people. Peltz and Musk also told Trump of an influence campaign in elite circles that is already under way, in which Musk and his political allies host gatherings of powerful business leaders across the country and try to convince them not to support President Biden’s re-election campaign.”

Musk seems to be someone with common sense when it comes the border and he clearly doesn’t care about the backlash he would get from being part of Trump’s administration, even if just an advisor.
