SpaceX founder Elon Musk criticized U.S. President Joe Biden and his predecessor, Donald Trump, noting that Biden won the 2020 election because people "wanted less drama".

Musk claimed that Biden beat Trump in the 2020 election cause people were growing tired of the latter's drama.

"Biden's mistake is that he thinks he was elected to transform the country, but actually everyone just wanted less drama," he tweeted.

Trump's term was marked with sexual harassment allegations and ended with claims that he incited an insurrection.

The Tesla CEO's tweet suggests that Biden thinks highly of his duty to transform the country, possibly referencing Biden's 2021 speech in which he said his $1 trillion infrastructure bill "will transform America."

The billionaire also shared that although he'd like someone "less pisive" than Trump in the 2024 presidential race, he would reinstate Trump's Twitter account because he'd like the platform to be a haven for free speech.

"Even though I think a less pisive candidate would be better in 2024, I still think Trump should be restored to Twitter," he wrote.

Earlier this week, Musk spoke at a live-streamed event with The Financial Times and called Twitter's decision to ban the former president "foolish in the extreme."

"Permanent bans should be extremely rare and really reserved for accounts that are bots, or scam, spam accounts...," Tesla CEO said. "I do think that it was not correct to ban Donald Trump. I think that was a mistake because it alienated a large part of the country, and it did not ultimately result in Donald Trump not having a voice."
