Dean Phillips teases Cabinet positions for Bill Ackman, Elon Musk if bid to beat Biden succeeds
Billionaire Ackman donates $1 million to longshot primary bid against Biden, joined by Elon Musk and Rep. Phillips to complain.
Billionaire Bill Ackman made a significant move in support of Rep. Dean Phillips' longshot primary bid by contributing $1 million. This move was part of a larger discussion on the Democratic National Committee's backing of President Joe Biden for the 2024 election. Ackman expressed his embarrassment and shame at Phillips being left off primary ballots in several states, emphasizing his belief in Phillips' credible path to winning the nomination despite the odds. This sentiment was echoed by Elon Musk, who argued against political parties making decisions that undermine the democratic process and take away the public's ability to choose viable candidates. Despite Phillips' late entry into the primary race and his low polling numbers compared to Biden, he remains optimistic about his potential to win the nomination. If he is successful, both Ackman and Musk could be in line for cabinet positions. Phillips also promised to build the most extraordinary bipartisan Cabinet in American history, possibly including individuals currently involved in the discussion on X Spaces. This move to support Phillips' bid and the broader discussion on the democratic process reflects concerns about Biden's ability to win against former President Donald Trump and the desire to ensure a fair and open election process.
