Twitter CEO Elon Musk was spotted with former Trump advisor Jared Kushner at Sunday’s World Cup final.

Musk and former President Donald Trump’s son-in-law appeared to be watching the game in a luxury suite, the New York Post noted. The two stuck out in dark-colored casual fashion choice while surrounded by men dressed in white robes and keffiyehs.

Musk frequently tweeted updated from the World Cup final, seemingly not favoring a team. He referred to the game as “evenly matched” when France scored and a “Duel in the Desert” as Argentina kicked the winning goal.

“24,400 tweets per second for France’s goal, highest ever for World Cup!” Musk tweeted during the match.

Both Musk and Kushner have high stakes in Middle-East investments. Kushner managed to secure a $2 billion investment from Saudi Arabia to his then newly-formed private equity firm, Affinity Partners, just six months after Trump left the White House, the New York Times reported.

In November, the Treasury Department reportedly weighed the possibility of investigating Musk’s ties to foreign investors, such as a Qatari sovereign wealth fund subsidiary and Saudi prince Alwaleed bin Talal bin Abdulaziz, following his acquisition of Twitter.
