Elon Musk's Mom Says Biden Blocks His World-Changing Plans as Starlink Loses $900M

starlink latest news

Maye Musk, mother of billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk, accused President Biden of obstructing her son's efforts to "make this world a better place." Her criticism follows the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) decision to not grant SpaceX's satellite internet unit, Starlink, a subsidy of nearly $900 million intended for rural broadband services.

Expressing her displeasure on a social media platform overseen by her son, Maye Musk questioned the FCC's assessment of Starlink's capabilities. FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr, who opposed the decision, echoed her sentiments, suggesting a trend of regulatory actions against Elon Musk's ventures.

Elon Musk, who has previously clashed with the Biden administration, supported these claims, hinting at biased treatment from the White House. This incident adds to a series of public defenses by Maye Musk for her son, including her response to a New York Times article and a plea for empathy in a BBC documentary. The situation highlights ongoing tensions between Elon Musk's business interests and the current U.S. administration.
