What Elon Musk Said About Rex Tillerson Being Approved For Secretary Of State Has Surprised Everyone

RealClear Contributor


When it comes to business, Elon Musk and Rex Tillerson are on completely different sides of the energy spectrum. Elon Musk is all about alternative energy sources and phasing out the use of fossil fuels to generate energy while Rex Tillerson has spent his entire life selling and extracting fossil fuels.

They both have different ideals when it comes to energy creation and consumption but when it comes to foreign affairs they appear to be on the same page because Elon Musk has surprisingly endorsed Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State.

In response to a tweet from the Economist, Musk said: “This may sound surprising coming from me, but I agree with The Economist. Rex Tillerson has the potential to be an excellent Sec of State.”

But that's not all the young billionaire had to say. He's also in support of Rex Tillerson's stance on climate change.

Musk tweeted: "Tillerson at his confirmation hearing: "I think it’s important that the United States maintain its seat at the table in the conversation on how to address threats of climate change. They do require a global response."

"Tillerson also said that “the risk of climate change does exist” and he believed “action should be taken"

Elon Musk is among the smartest people on the planet. His ability to think and act effectively has made him a huge success so Musk's endorsement of Tillerson isn't grounded on ignorance but ingenuity.

Even brilliant people from a left standpoint can see the light.
