Tesla and Spacex CEO Elon Musk says he has a “super bad feeling” about the U.S. economy. President Joe Biden responded with a list of major investments by large corporations and wished Musk luck on his trip to the moon.
Elon Musk has a uniquely informed insight into the global economy. We believe that a message from him would carry high credibility.
On Friday, President Joe Biden responded to Musk’s “super bad feeling” comment about the U.S. economy.
“Well, let me tell you, while Elon Musk is talking about that, Ford is increasing their investment overwhelmingly,” Biden said, pulling out a notecard from his jacket pocket.
“Ford is increasing their investment and building new electric vehicles, 6,000 new employees ― union employees, I might add ― in the midwest. The former Chrysler Corporation, Stellantis, they are also making similar investments in electric vehicles. Intel is adding 20,000 new jobs making computer chips,” the president continued.
Biden concluded while putting his notecard back into his jacket pocket:
So, you know, lots of luck on his trip to the moon.
