Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — Tesla CEO Elon Musk and top aides to President Joe Biden have met in Washington to discuss electric vehicles. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre says Musk did not meet with the president. Instead, Biden aides Mitch Landrieu and John Podesta sat down with the Tesla chief on Friday to discuss how recently enacted infrastructure and climate legislation can help grow the EV industry and electrification more broadly. Landrieu oversees federal spending on infrastructure, including help for the electric vehicle industry, while Podesta is the president’s point man on federal spending on climate and clean energy initiatives.
