`Poor Elon` trended on Twitter after he voiced support for the Republican party
‘Poor Elon’ started trending on Twitter on May 19, after Elon Musk announced his political vision and lost billions in one day. The announcement prompted users to tweet ‘Poor Alone’ on the micro-blogging platform.
In his tweet, Musk mentioned that he used to vote for the Democrats because they were the ‘party of kindness’.
He tweeted, “In the past, I voted Democrat because they were (mostly) the party of kindness. But they have become the party of division and hate, so I can no longer support them and vote Republican.” Will give. Now, look at their dirty tricks. The campaign against me.”

But they have become the party of division and hate, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican.
Now, watch their campaign of dirty tricks against me unfold… 🍿

The 50-year-old billionaire recently said he would reverse Twitter’s ban on former US President Donald Trump, a Republican, when he buys the social media platform. He also said that Twitter is too left-wing because it is headquartered in California, a state known for its progressive politics.
