    Some Tesla Model 3 reservation holders claim to be canceling orders over Elon Musk’s link with Trump

    [​IMG]

    President Trump’s executive order to ban people from some specific primarily Muslim countries is having a significant backlash across the world.

    The ban itself is directly affecting a lot of people, but in some cases, people’s reactions to the executive order are indirectly impacting companies. For example, Uber has been hit by an unsubscription campaign because of its CEO’s link to the Trump administration and the fact that its drivers didn’t comply to a call to halt pick-ups at John F Kennedy International Airport in protestation against the ban.

    It looks like Tesla is also being the target of a similar – though apparently less significant – effort after comments made by CEO Elon Musk about Trump’s executive order. more…

    Knock yourself out. If you feel the need to cancel you go right ahead. Moves me that much closer to delivery.

      I don't know why this makes me so mad but guess we all get bumped up some spots. I really feel the public doesn't get it when it comes to Elon participating on the councils he's involved with. This isn't a democrat or republican debate this is plain and simple Elon having a seat at the table so he can continue to push the climate change and EV adoption agenda. I'm thrilled he didn't decide to sit on the sidelines and complain for 4 years and instead participate in the process to hopefully change some hearts and minds.

      I totally get taking a stand but Elon did the right thing here. He commented on it being a problematic order and suggested we all offer him suggestions on revising it so he can present it to the council and the president. That's power. Or he could withdraw from the council and bitch on Twitter cause thats done a lot of good :p.

        Yup, no doubt.

        People need to start seeing the forest for the trees as it were. Elon is in a very powerful position being on those councils where he can influence opinion, belief and policy.

          Precisely. I wish they had more pull to be honest. It's conjecture but I've seen numerous sources claim that meeting with Trump he seems very reasonable and willing to hear you out and open to your ideas and then he just does whatever he wants later :p. Atleast Elon is making a metric crapton of jobs so he has an agenda to push the pres will like.

            Trump does whatever the last guy that talks to him wants, mostly Steve Bannon. Sorry Trevor, but this thread seems to be all politics.

              It started out as politics. Just read the title. Although...it does directly pertain to the Model 3. Probably correct though to shut it down before it turns into a cussfest. ;)

                  @Badback , you are right; it is really hard at times though to disconnect the world of business (which in this case impacts us as we all hope to get our car soonest for still an affordable price) and decisions from authorities... There is no firewall between the two...

                  I wrote it before, Elon will do whatever he thinks will help his 'cause' yet will retain the freedom to express disagreement when he feels necessary... and he will leave if it starts to be counterproductive...
                  One thing is also clear, we won't all agree on whether or not the new President is reasonable' or not, or on to what extent we can relate to (or tolerate...) all of his advisors...
                  So, yep, let's leave at that... thanks! :)

                  Finally, let me say I agree with Fred Lambert's assessment these 'politically motivated', boycott type cancellations are unlikely to move the needle... though of course no one here would mind if she/she wins a few stops in the queue... I know it's selfish, but such is mankind... :)

                  Great evening, folks... tomorrow is another day... :rainbow:

                    I see this as good news for me. Give me my M3 sooner. I bet once the final reveal is done many will kick themselves for canceling.

                      I can't think of a less effective way of promoting EV's or climate change policy. Elon is likely the only person in these meetings advocating these points of view. He is likely doing this and bringing up the travel ban amendment against the economic interests of his companies. He has a far better chance of being heard than anyone on social media. Cancelling will have no effect at all on US policy, I suspect those who did will come to regret it.

                        I understand the doubt people have about the collaboration of Musk with Trump. But that won't change my desire to own a Tesla Model 3 someday, nor my belief in Tesla and Elon as a huge motor for the necessary transition, nor about his good intentions.
                        I do have serious hesitations though, about buying an expensive American product in this timeframe.
                        Luckily I'm not buying yet, I will have to wait almost two more years before I can. We'll see what happens by then. A lot can change in two years.

                            Tesla CEO Elon Musk explains reasoning for being on President Trump’s advisory council, as Uber’s Kalanick drops out

                            [​IMG]

                            Earlier today, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick dropped off of US President Donald Trump’s advisory council. The reasons cited were because of immigration reform but Kalanick was also targeted for his previous support for Trump, Uber continuing to serve JFK airport during the recent taxi strike and the subsequent #DeleteUber campaign which caused 200,000 people to flee the service and boosted its competitor Lyft to the top of the app charts.


                            On Thursday, Mr. Kalanick gave his answer, stepping down from Mr. Trump’s economic advisory council. “There are many ways we will continue to advocate for just change on immigration, but staying on the council was going to get in the way of that,” Mr. Kalanick wrote in an email to employees obtained by The New York Times.

                            Tesla CEO Elon Musk is also on that economic advisory council which has similarly hurt his reputation among some– I’d wager far fewer– and has also caused some Tesla Model 3 reservation holders to refund their deposits.
