(FixThisNation.com) – Billionaire Twitter owner Elon Musk has hinted that he would be supporting Sen. Tim Scott who announced his presidential campaign for 2024 on Monday.
Scott, a Republican from South Carolina, announced on Monday that he would be running for the White House in 2024. His office also tweeted out a live stream for those who wanted to view the announcement. In response to the video announcement, Musk tweeted from his own account “Let’s go!”
While Musk did not formally endorse Scott, his comment strongly hints that he might opt to support the Republican Senator in his bid for the White House.
Scott is the latest Republican to join the 2024 GOP primary presidential race, which currently includes former President Donald Trump, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, and millionaire entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy.
On Wednesday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis placed his own presidential bid, which he announced on Wednesday at 6 p.m. ET during an interview with Elon Musk.
Scott has recently risen in prominence within the GOP. He is also the only Black Republican currently in the Senate. During a Fox News interview on the eve of his campaign announcement, he stated that his message was going to be positive and optimistic while remaining deeply rooted in conservatism.
On Monday during his announcement speech, he also took a jab at Trump stating “Victimhood or victory? Grievance or greatness?” This was widely considered to be a comment about Trump’s insistence on repeatedly talking about the 2020 presidential race.
On Sunday, Scott also told Fox News that he was expecting that following his announcement his poll numbers would also grow as enthusiasm spreads throughout the country.
