This is a complicated question. One, I have no idea. Two, at the moment, he couldn’t even if he wanted to — he was born to non-American parents in foreign countries soil (South Africa and Canada.)
But he is one of the wealthiest men in the world — and extremely weird — so it’s within reason to believe he might, on a lark, pour the necessary money into state legislatures to get them to pass a minor tweak to the Constitution that would allow him — and Arnold Schwarzenegger for that matter — to run for president despite not being “native born.”
Yet, it is very possible that Musk could do such a thing. He definitely has a similar vibe to Trump and he’s so fucking weird — and an actual billionaire — that he could become POTUS accidently on purpose.
He might run, but would he win? And which party would he run as?
I definitely think he might win as a Republican. And I’ll tell you why — he’s such a plutocrat that he’s the only person who could simply believe whatever he wants to believe and win the Republican nomination against Trump.
Musk is everything that Trump wants to be, but isn’t (to some degree.) In fact, I can honestly say that Musk is probably right now the only potential Republican nominee I might actually vote for.
But he couldn’t become MAGA. If he did, fuck that. The same rules would apply as they do with MAGA candidates. And, who knows, maybe Schwarzenegger might run.
