Elon Musk has said on Twitter that he prefers to stay out of politics. But at the same time that the billionaire is waging his on-again, off-again effort to buy the social media platform, he has been wading into sensitive political issues in the U.S. and beyond.

In recent weeks he has weighed in on Russia’s war against Ukraine and China’s standoff with Taiwan.
