Donald Trump takes out the sulfateuse on Tesla and Elon Musk

Former US President Donald Trump attacked the Tesla boss in a post on his Truth Social social network. And the response was quick.

Gone are the days of smiles and handshakes. Donald Trump and the boss of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk, have multiplied the verbal contests in recent days. Latest example? A message from Donald Trump on the Truth Social networkfounded by the former president of the United States after the invasion of the Capitol in Washington by militants in January 2021.

In this post, former US president reflects on meeting with Elon Musk when he was in power:

“When Elon Musk came to the White House asking me to help him with his taxpayer-funded projects, like its electric cars that don’t have enough autonomy, its self-driving cars that spit or its rockets that go nowhereall those projects that wouldn’t have any value without public funding, and telling myself how much of a Trump fan and Republican he was, I could have said to him, ” Get on your knees and beg “. And he would have…” – Donald Trump

“LMAOOOOO” replied Elon Musk on Twitter (abbreviation of laughing my ass offor “pété de rire” in colloquial French).

Political disagreements

On Tuesday, Elon Musk posted a political message on Twitter, in response to a video where the former president called him a “garbage artist” (“ bullshit artist »):

“I don’t hate the man, but it’s time for Trump to put his hat away and disappear into the sunset. The Democrats also need to drop their attacks. Don’t make it so that the only way for Trump to survive is to win back the presidency” – Elon Musk

Two years ago, the former president nevertheless welcomed his supposed role in the successful launches of SpaceX.

The disagreement between the two men seems to have its origin in Elon Musk’s failed attempt to buy Twitter. Another bone of contention: Tesla CEO’s positive comments about Ron DeSantis. The governor of Florida could be a candidate in the Republican primaries for the presidential election of 2024.

“If DeSantis runs against Biden in 2024, he’ll win easily, he won’t even have to campaign” – Elon Musk

However, the entry of DeSantis into the race for the White House could be one of the main obstacles to a return of Donald Trump to power.
