Elon Musk says Trump, Biden and anyone over 70 should be banned from running for office
The Independent says SpaceX and Tesla founder Elon Musk has a radical suggestion for the future of American politics: enforcing an age threshold beyond which candidates cannot stand for public office.
In a tweet on Thursday, the ultra-wealthy silicon valley entrepreneur wrote: “Let’s set an age limit after which you can’t run for political office, perhaps a number just below 70.”
It is unclear exactly what prompted his message, though he recently found himself in a spat with 80-year-old Bernie Sanders – a leading proponent of corporation and wealth taxes that would presumably hit Mr Musk and his empire hard.
