Twitter owner and CEO Elon Musk weighed in on former president Donald Trump’s recent indictment and Manhattan arraignment Tuesday with an observation on how the use of America’s justice system will serve as the crux for winning over voters in future elections.
“To avoid losing the trust of the American public, it is important that our justice system pursue Democrats and Republicans with equal vigor,” Musk tweeted. “Whichever party most puts justice before nepotism is the one that deserves trust.”

Musk was responding directly to a tweet by Democrat Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, who wildly claimed that Trump would get “a fair trial” despite the fact that Alvin Bragg already made up bogus felony charges, the presiding judge is a raging leftist whose daughter worked for Democrats, and whose district is filled mostly with Democrat voters.
“I believe that Donald Trump will have a fair trial that follows the facts and the law,” the New York Senator said There’s no place in our justice system for any outside influence or intimidation in the legal process. As the trial proceeds, protest is an American right, but all protests must be peaceful.
Amazingly, in addition to thinking this was a standard criminal proceeding, Schumer also asked that any protests be peaceful. Few readers need a reminder of what the summer of 2020 looked like – and how Democrats responded. Vice President Kamala Harris even encouraged donations of bail funds for rioters.
But Musk was not done with reacting to the spectacle of Trump’s ridiculously trumped-up legal entanglement.
“Musk, the chief executive of Tesla, SpaceX, and Twitter, also shared a meme quipping that Democrats would travel back in time to kill Trump before his unexpected rise to political stardom if they had access to a time machine,” the Daily Wire wrote. “He previously predicted that Trump would be reelected in a “landslide victory” following his arrest, especially if he were handcuffed.”
Below is the meme being referenced by the Daily Wire.

In response to his own indictment and arrest, Donald Trump lashed out on Truth Social condemning the venue location and the judge selected to hear his case.
“VERY UNFAIR VENUE, WITH SOME AREAS THAT VOTED 1% REPUBLICAN. THIS CASE SHOULD BE MOVED TO NEARBY STATEN ISLAND – WOULD BE A VERY FAIR AND SECURE LOCATION FOR THE TRIAL,” Trump wrote on Truth Social.
“ADDITIONALLY, THE HIGHLY PARTISAN JUDGE & HIS FAMILY ARE WELL KNOWN TRUMP HATERS. HE WAS AN UNFAIR DISASTER ON A PREVIOUS TRUMP RELATED CASE, WOULDN’T RECUSE, GAVE HORRIBLE JURY INSTRUCTIONS, & IMPOSSIBLE TO DEAL WITH DURING THE WITCH HUNT TRIAL,” he continued. “HIS DAUGHTER WORKED FOR “KAMALA” & NOW THE BIDEN-HARRIS CAMPAIGN. KANGAROO COURT!!!”
The Daily Wire provided an overview of the case faced by Trump, writing:
Trump was arrested after surrendering himself to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg to face dozens of felony charges related to alleged hush money payments to porn actress Stormy Daniels during the 2016 election cycle. Many critics have characterized the case as politically motivated since no former commander-in-chief has ever faced criminal charges. Prosecutors claim that the alleged $130,000 hush money payment was an improper donation to the Trump campaign because the funds were used to stop an unfavorable story and thereby benefit his run for office.
