The White House on Monday said reports suggesting that the United States was discussing launching a national security review of some of Elon Musk’s ventures were “not true.”
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre declined to comment on the Biden administration’s relationship with Musk or his business dealings with other countries.
Asked about a Bloomberg report last week that said Biden administration officials were discussing whether some of Musk’s ventures should face national security reviews, Jean-Pierre said, “Those reportings are not true … The national security review – that is not true,” she told reporters.
