With 10,000 people a day swarming across America’s Southern border, Elon Musk is using his considerable skill of driving the public’s conversation by paying a personal visit to the border that Biden’s lapdog press has been dutifully ignoring.
It comes at a moment where one of the key issues in the government budget/shutdown conversation will be contention over a precondition that any new funding come with the commitment to complete Trump’s border wall and fully secure the border.
Today, Elon went to the border, and shared footage of that trip (above) to his enormous social media following. Within hours, it’s already well over 6 million views, and it’s almost certain to keep going up.
The billionaire also shared this one, which has more than 3 million impressions:
