Neoliberalism and Musk are no friend of the right-wing in the US, who generally oppose government spending of all sorts. Musk is also no friend of the left, as he lobbies against unions and consumer rights - like he did when he lobbied against the rebate for electric vehicles supplied by union labour - because big auto (like Ford) are unionized and Tesla isn't.

@bolded: I don't get this statement, since Neoliberalism is famously a right-winged movement, that has it's roots back somewhere in the 60's but became quite famous with Thatcher, a famous representative of the right (the real right, not this thing people are calling "right" nowadays, which should actually be called savagery or anything like it).
