Billionaire Elon Musk has directed his attention to the Federal Aviation Administration’s focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion, stating Monday morning that he “could not believe this is happening.”
Musk, who has spoken out against the DEI movement recently, shared a story on social media that revealed the FAA is seeking to hire people with “severe intellectual” disabilities. Among these disabilities defined by the FAA include those involving hearing, sight, partial or complete paralysis, and epilepsy.
“Just had a conversation with some smart people could not believe this is happening,” Musk wrote on X, his social media platform once known as Twitter.
