Musk Claims US Lacks a President

Elon Musk has suggested that the US executive branch has been without a proper leader “for a while.”

Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk has suggested that the US does not have an actual president and has not had one “for a while.”

Musk took to his X (formerly Twitter) social media network to comment on the ongoing political debate in the aftermath of the debates between US President Joe Biden and former leader Donald Trump. He reposted a message by another user, with a screenshot of an opinion piece run by the New York Times, titled “Does America need a president?”

“Real question … since we obviously haven’t had one for a while lmao,” Musk wrote.

The itself, penned by social conservative columnist Ross Douthat, discusses the role of the president in American society, whether a dysfunctional president can be fully replaced by others in the executive branch, the impact such a ‘leader’ has on decision-making and accountability, and other topics.

Douthat himself has been arguing long before the disastrous debate that Biden “needs to be replaced because it would be incredibly dangerous to have a senescent president in the White House for the next four years – and not just because Democrats fear he might lose to Trump in November.”
