Elon Musk ramped up criticism towards the World Economic Forum (WEF) on Wednesday.
Musk replied to a video from Disclose.tv. The video included WEF founder and executive chairman Klaus Schwab speaking to the issue of trust.
In response, Musk said the “WEF is increasingly becoming an unelected world government that the people never asked for and don’t want.”
Shortly after, Musk ran a Twitter poll for users.
“The World Economic Forum should control the world” he tweeted, with “Yes” or “No” as options for users to choose.
Late last year, Musk tweeted that he was once invited to the Davos meeting but declined because he thought it sounded boring.
Subsequently, Twitter users observed that the WEF removed Twitter from its “how to follow us” page, which directs users to its social media platforms.
The WEF kept other social media platforms up, including Tiktok, WeChat, and Weibo, all operating out of communist China.
After this development garnered public attention, the WEF readded Twitter to its “how to follow us” page without any links.
The WEF has become a polarized issue for politicians in Canada and the US.
Last summer, then-candidate Pierre Poilievre of the Conservative Party of Canada said no one from his party would be allowed to attend the WEF.
In October, Alberta’s Premier Danielle Smith also took a shot at the group.
“I find it distasteful when billionaires brag about how much control they have over political leaders, as the head of that organization has,” she said.
“I think that that is offensive for people who should be directing government or the people who vote for them.”
And, in November, Florida governor Ron DeSantis said the state of Florida wants nothing to do with the WEF’s policies, saying they’re “dead on arrival.”
