So, first of all, how he treated the covid crisis. He relativized it and called the lockdown fascist (Almost Holocaust-trivilization, at least in my oppinion. Staying at home isn't comparable with beeing murdered.), so this doesn't give me the impression, that he's really interested in science. At least not as much, as the national agencies(these days, I know the spacerace has been a lot about ideology).
It's right, he's a big visionary, but first of all, he's a capitalist (I'm German and this is the best description I know)and an entertainer. For me, it doesn't really seem, like he's mainly interested in science and this is, what space-exploration should be about.
And some other things... A quick google search, about his behavior regarding the stock exchange scandal might be interesting for you too.
And I don't think, that the people digging up the cobalt for the Teslas are earning good money (more of a general problem, but also something, where they should try to do better).
Yeah, this might be a too political view on it. If I violate the forum rules with this, please, tell me.
Edit: If he would be interested in science, he would have sent a probe to mars and not his Tesla.
