Twitter owner Elon Musk has been a vocal supporter of former President of United States Donald Trump. Advocating for the businessman-turned-politician who has bid running for President in the US Presidential Polls 2024, Elon Musk has various occasions tweeted how the Donald Trump might be getting ‘targeted’ for ‘far higher interests’.

On Friday Elon Musk took to Twitter to address the ongoing indictment against Republican Donald Trump and highlighted his opinion saying that the US Justice system seem to have 'far higher interest" in pursuing the Republican Party leader compared to other people in politics.

“There does seem to be far higher interest in pursuing Trump compared to other people in politics. Very important that the justice system rebut what appears to be differential enforcement or they will lose public trust." Tesla CEO Elon Musk wrote on Twitter. 

Notably, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has predicted that former President Donald Trump will be re-elected as President in the upcoming US polls 2024. Elon Musk has predicted a ‘landslide-victory’ for Trump. 

Elon Musk also responded with an emoji to a tweet from a far-right account called End Wokeness.

Elon Musk's involvement with US politics is not new. In May, the Tesla CEO hosted Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Twitter Spaces for the governor's 2024 campaign launch.

"The corrupt Biden Administration has informed my attorneys that I have been Indicted, seemingly over the Boxes Hoax," Trump wrote on his platform Truth Social as he broke the bombshell news to the public.

Former US President Donald Trump faces a new legal challenge - this time from the government he used to lead - with charges for illegally retaining classified documents and other crimes expected to be filed next week in federal court in Miami.

The indictment of a former US president on federal charges is unprecedented in American history, a case made more extraordinary by the fact that Trump is also the front-runner of his party for the Republican presidential nomination next year.

Trump faces seven criminal counts related to his treatment of sensitive government materials he took with him when he left the White House in January 2021, according to a source familiar with the matter.

Donald Trump, who turns 77 next week, has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing.
