Tesla CEO Elon Musk has overruled Democrat President Joe Biden and called on the United States to increase domestic oil and gas output in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

“Hold Strong Ukraine,” Musk added in a tweet.

“We will not do so unless at gunpoint. Sorry to be a free speech absolutist.”
