President Donald Trump’s executive order banning the entry of refugees from seven primarily Muslim countries has sparked outrage across the United States. The ban directly affects thousands of people. But it is also indirectly affecting a few companies. Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who was a Trump critic before the Presidential elections, has been inching closer to President Trump. And it has not gone down well with some customers who had pre-ordered Tesla’s Model 3 mass-market electric vehicle.

Musk is an adviser to Donald Trump

Tesla has received more than 400,000 pre-orders for its Model 3 car that will enter mass production later this year. Customers paid a $1,000 deposit for reservations. Now Electrek reports that some of the reservation holders have been canceling their orders after Elon Musk’s comments on the executive order. Ever since Trump’s election, Musk has been getting closer to the administration.
