President Novak meets Elon Musk in Texas

President Katalin Novak discussed the Western world's demographic crisis with Tesla CEO Elon Musk at the electric carmaker's plant in Austin, Texas, on Monday.

Musk greeted Novak with one of his sons before holding private talks with the president.

“Elon Musk could not make it to the Budapest Demographic Summit in the end. We are making up for the meeting now,” Novak said on Facebook.

She began the meeting by saying that the demographic crisis was not getting enough attention relative to climate change.

Vajk Farkas, communications director of the presidential Sandor Palace, told public media that one of the main aims of Novak’s US visit was to meet with allies in tackling demographic challenges. These, he said, included, Musk, Texas Governor Greg Abott and Montana Governor Greg Gianforte.

Musk has voiced his views on global demographic challenges on multiple occasions recently, saying that “population collapse” was a bigger threat than climate change. He has also recently met other world leaders, including French President Emmanuel Macron and Italian Prime Minister Georgia Meloni.

Novak wraps up her visit in Utah on Tuesday, meeting Governor Spencer Cox.
