Biden officially mentioned Tesla for the first time earlier this year, citing the company’s role as the nation’s largest maker of electric automobiles. During Biden’s address, he mentioned Tesla as one of the American firms responsible for growing the country’s EV infrastructure.
Earlier, the reference was wedged between mentions of traditional manufacturers GM and Ford, as well as smaller EV firms Rivian Automotive and Proterra.
According to reports, the US President has avoided addressing Tesla throughout his time as president because he believes Tesla is anti-union.
Biden’s pro-union and infrastructure investment proposals, as well as his seeming indifference to Musk, his enterprises, and Tesla’s leadership in electric car manufacturing and charging infrastructure, have all been criticized by Musk.
Biden has been referred to as a “damp sock puppet in human form” by the CEO, who has also accused him of being “dominated by unions.”
