On the eve of the midterm elections, Elon Musk, the new owner of Twitter, encouraged US citizens to support Republican candidates for Congress.

"To independent-minded voters: Shared power curbs the worst excesses of both parties, therefore I recommend voting for a Republican Congress, given that the Presidency is Democratic," Musk wrote on Twitter.

After being posted, the tweet received over 43,000 retweets and over 279,000 likes.

Musk has wreaked havoc on Twitter since purchasing the network, laying off employees, and dissolving the company's board.

The Tesla CEO's leadership of Twitter, one of the world's top forums for dialogue and activity, has generated concerns about the platform's political impartiality.

Musk's firing of many Twitter employees has also heightened concerns that the platform may be inundated with hate speech and disinformation, prompting several advertisers to withdraw their support.

Musk has hinted that he intends to lift the ban on former President Donald Trump, but not before Tuesday's midterm elections.

Trump was banned for allegedly inciting a violent mob to attack the Capitol last year in order to reverse the results of the 2020 presidential election.

Musk stated that it would be "at least a few more weeks" before banned accounts could be reinstated on Twitter as the business worked through its "election integrity" procedures.

While many politicians have evaded Musk and Twitter, President Joe Biden dubbed the social media site an "outfit that spews lies" during a campaign speech in Chicago.

Democrats and Republicans traded final blows Thursday ahead of midterm elections that could derail Biden's presidency, erode Western backing for Ukraine, and perhaps pave the way for Trump to make a comeback.

President Biden was scheduled to wrap up days of hectic campaigning for Democratic candidates at a rally on Monday night close to Baltimore. He has framed his final argument as a warning that American democracy is on the brink.

Trump, who is using the midterm elections to regularly hint at a potential 2024 presidential bid, was addressing a crowd in Ohio.

According to polls, Republicans are likely to take control of the House, and the increasingly far-right party planned to scuttle the remainder of President Biden's first term with vigorous investigations and resistance to spending plans.

With just hours until polls open countrywide on Tuesday, there have already been more than 40 million votes cast via early voting options, placing the fate of the largest economy in the world in question.
