Donald Trump is reportedly considering an advisory role for Elon Musk

  • Elon Musk and Donald Trump have discussed a role for him in the White House, the WSJ reported.

  • Musk and Trump have had a hot and cold relationship over the years.

  • In March, Musk said the US needed a “red wave.”

There’s a chance Elon Musk will spend more time in the White House if former President Donald Trump returns to power.

The pair have discussed an advisory role for Musk if Trump wins the 2024 election, The Wall Street Journal reported.

While the title and details of the role are unclear, people familiar with the subject told the Journal that the two discussed ways to provide Musk with input on border security and economic policy. Still, the situation has not yet been fully discussed and may not happen, the sources said.

Despite his disagreements with Trump over the past two years, the Journal reported that Musk is privately campaigning for his wealthy colleagues to withdraw their support of Joe Biden. It also said Musk was working with billionaire investor Nelson Peltz on a plan to invest in a project that the two said could prevent voter fraud by using data to ensure votes are counted fairly.

Musk has been open about his views on the Biden administration in recent months. In March, Tesla’s CEO said on X that he voted “100% Dem” until a few years ago.

“Now I think we need a red wave or America is toast,” Musk added in the post.

He said the same month that he had no plans to donate to Trump or Biden.

But before that, his biographer Walter Isaacson wrote in “Elon Musk” that the billionaire had said, “Trump might be one of the best bullshitters in the world.”

Musk has not committed to supporting Trump, the Journal said.

Still, the newspaper said, Musk and Trump dined together and discussed issues such as immigration, technology and the US Space Force.

“President Trump will be the sole voice in determining what role an individual plays in his presidency,” Brian Hughes, a spokesman for the Trump campaign, told the Journal.

Elon Musk did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Business Insider.
