“I say I am not aware of such discussions,” Jean-Pierre told reporters during a White House briefing.

Elon Musk often uses his Twitter account as a weapon – threatening to renege on his deal to buy Twitter or insulting President Joe Biden like a wet puppet “in human form”.
More recently, the world’s richest person has turned to more treacherous geopolitical territory by offering puzzle proposals to end Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and settle issues of Taiwan sovereignty. His tweets and other public comments have angered presidents and foreign ministers across Europe and, clumsily, won praise from America’s rivals.
Now Musk is escalating again, putting his money where it says: On Friday he threatened to cut financial support for SpaceX’s Starlink satellite internet service in Ukraine, a move that would deprive the country of a key means of communication in the fight against Russian forces. .
