Elon Musk Supports Pro-Bitcoin U.S. Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang

Visionaries can create the future and value for the world. Now two visionaries are joining forces. In effect, Tesla Inc. CEO Elon Musk announced his support for Bitcoin-friendly Andrew Yang’s run for U.S. president in 2020.

Elon Musk, “I support Yang.”
