Is Elon Musk a threat to US national security? That and other questions surrounding reports that the US may place the new owner of Twitter Elon Musk under national security review have been asked at the first, post-election Biden’s press conference at the White House.
“I think that Elon Musk’s cooperation and/or technical relationships with other countries is worthy of being looked at,” said Biden. “Whether or not he is doing anything inappropriate, I’m not suggesting that. I’m suggesting that it is worth being looked. That’s all I’ll say.”
Asked to specify the tools by which a prospective investigation would be done, Biden was cryptic.
“There’s a lot of ways.”
On November 2, Biden’s NSC Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby contradicted Biden by saying that whether Elon Musk’s Twitter deal should go under national security review is up to CFIUS, not the White House, to decide.
