"I support Yang," Musk tweeted, following up with a second tweet that "He would our first openly goth president. I think this is very important."

Yang had previously tweeted, "I don’t expect people to agree with me on everything- that would be odd. My main hope is that people trust that I’m trying to solve problems and I’m open to different approaches - particularly if the data drives in a particular direction. Changing one’s mind is not a bad thing."

Yang, a former tech executive, is among two dozen people vying for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

He has gained attention for making universal basic income a focal point of his run and his campaign recently announced that he qualified for the fall debates.
