Elon Musk, chief executive officer of Tesla, at the Viva Tech fair in Paris, France, on Friday, June 16, 2023. Tesla CEO Elon Musk said Wednesday he will not donate to the campaigns of either President Joe Biden or former President Donald Trump. Musk, who also heads SpaceX, could support Trump or Biden in ways other than a direct donation to their campaigns. Despite Musk's habit of taking political stances on social media, he is not a major, frequent donor to campaigns. Musk during the 2018 midterm election cycle made a series of contributions to Republican and Democratic committee support candidates for Congress for $33,900 apiece.
