Elon Musk reacts to Gov. Greg Abbott’s feedback

Elon Musk declined to comment directly on Texas’ abortion law Thursday after Governor Greg Abbott said so Tesla and the CEO of SpaceX supported his state’s “social policy” after the implementation of the strictly restrictive measure.

“In general, I believe the government should seldom impose its will on people while trying to maximize their cumulative happiness,” Musk told CNBC in a tweet.

“But I’d rather stay out of politics,” said Musk, whose companies and private foundations are expanding their businesses in Texas.

Abortion rights advocates and vendors say the law sets the precedent for abortion protection established under Roe v. Wade was set to effectively cancel. president Joe Biden and others in his administration, as well as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, have vowed to take action after this The Supreme Court refused to block the law from going into effect.

Earlier on Thursday, Abbott told CNBC: “Screeching in the street“that the new law and other politically divisive laws on social issues will not make its state less attractive to companies or individuals.

“You need to understand that there are a lot of companies and a lot of Americans who like the social positions of the state of Texas,” Abbott said.

“This is not slowing down the companies coming into the state of Texas at all. In fact, it is speeding up the process of companies coming into Texas,” Abbott said.

He added that Musk “had to get out of California because of California’s welfare policy, and Elon keeps telling me that he likes Texas welfare policy.”

Musk personally moved to Texas from California last year, which could save him billions of dollars in taxes. He had not shared his thoughts on the Heartbeat Abortion Act, which also empowers private individuals to sue anyone who “aids” and “incites” most abortions.

Musk has shown little reluctance to meddle on political issues in the past.

For example, in early 2020, amid the early waves of the Coronavirus pandemic, Musk slapped government stay-at-home orders, calling them “fascist” in a swear word about Teslas Profit call for the first quarter of 2020.

Under his direction, Tesla he then filed and eventually withdrew a lawsuit against California’s Alameda County alleging that its health ordinances were against state policy on business closings.

Last year, Musk donated to three Republican anti-abortion lawmakers and four Democratic lawmakers who support abortion law, giving $ 2,800 each, according to the Money-in-Politics tracker OpenSecrets.org.

Both Tesla and SpaceX have sizable operations in Texas. Tesla is currently building its second US auto plant outside of Austin. And SpaceX has been operating in the state since 2003.

Musk said on March 31 that the company will need to hire more than 10,000 people for the new Texas facility by 2022.

Tesla’s headquarters are currently still in Palo Alto, California, and Tesla operates its first U.S. auto assembly plant nearby in Fremont. But last May, Musk threatened to move these headquarters and future development to Texas and Nevada in protest of pandemic-related restrictions in the Golden State.

Rangers beat Celtic 1-0 at Ibrox on Sunday afternoon and Bhoys captain Callum McGregor has given his view on Rangers’ tactics.

Ange Postecoglou’s men have shown promise lately and wanted a clear win against their fierce rivals to really prove they can fight for the title.

Celtic had the best chance of the first half when Odsonne Edouard somehow brought the ball out from close range – and they had to pay for that miss.

Filip Helander’s superb second-half header gave the Rangers a 1-0 lead and they managed to hold out when Kyogo Furuhashi tested Robby McCrorie twice.

Celtic will be disappointed with losing so narrowly and will be desperate to strike back – both for the remainder of their league season and for the next game against the Rangers.

The Celtic skipper McGregor has now offered his opinion on the game and especially the tactics of the Rangers on Sunday afternoon.

McGregor told The Scottish Sun that he thinks the Rangers are a direct team and played a long ball against Celtic which made the game crap.

McGregor, however, paid tribute to the Rangers for discovering and exploiting weaknesses in the Celtic team, believing that they simply did not allow the Bhoys to play their style of football.

“Rangers started the second half quite well. They like to go long. They fought for second balls and made it a junk, ”said McGregor. “We’re just not quite on the ball and we’re not adjusting it like we did in the first half. Thank you very much, you changed it and saw a problem there. “

“When they got there, we were a little blown away. But then we finished the game strong with a few chances. In those moments we have to be strong, stand up and try to turn the game around in our favor, ”he added.
