Nice strawman. Despite the tone of his tweet, Musk has never said he was motivated by anything but business interests. As the CEO of a public company, he has a legal obligation to act in the interest of his shareholders. Joining Trump’s advisory team (regardless of how he or we feel about Trump’s behaviour) was the responsible thing to do as a CEO. If you’re not at the table, you don’t get to play. Similarly, when Trump abandoned Paris, it became clear to Musk that the value of having a seat at that table was now zero, so he left. We might all wish that every tech CEO could thumb their noses at Trump the way Zuck has, but that’s not going to happen.
