Elon Musk and Tesla fans ramp up pressure for recognition from Biden with ad and 50,000 petition signatures

Elon Musk and Tesla fans are ramping up the pressure to get recognition from President Biden, who has had a clear problem acknowledging that Tesla is leading the electrification of the auto industry in the United States.

Almost 50,000 Tesla supporters have signed a petition, and someone has even bought an ad about it on Times Square.

The tension between the Biden administration and Musk and his fans has been growing for months now.

Tesla wasn’t invited, and both Musk and many Tesla fans took offense.

However, the event was about the US automakers, like Ford and GM, committing to go 50% electric by 2030. Tesla is already all electric.
