Donald Trump Says He Could Have Made Elon Musk ‘Drop to His Knees’
The war of words between the former president Donald Trump and Elon Musk is intensifying — and getting weirder.
On Tuesday night, Trump responded to a series of tweets the Tesla CEO sent Monday encouraging Trump to end his political career.
Musk said on Twitter: “I don’t hate that man, but it’s time for Trump to put on his hat and sail into the sunset. “Dems should also stop the attack — don’t do it, Trump’s only way to survive is to win back the Presidency.”
No wonder the former president doesn’t take it seriously at all. For his part, he joins his right-wing social network Social Truth and lashed out at Musk, recalling one of the many times the Tesla CEO visited the White House during his time in office.
“When Elon Musk came to the White House asking me to help him with all his subsidized projects, whether it was an electric car that didn’t last long enough, a driverless car that got into an accident, or a rocket that crashed into the sky. no, without subsidies he would be worthless,” Trump wrote, “and told me how big of a Trump fan he is and the Republican party, I would say, ‘kneel. come down and beg,’ and he will. “
For good measure, the former chairman appeared to divulge another Musk news on Tuesday: Twitter is suing the rogue billionaire alleging that he broke a contract to acquire the company.
“Elon should now focus on getting out of the Twitter mess because he could owe $44 billion for something that is probably worthless. Also, a lot of competition for electric cars! “
In response to Trump’s taunts, Musk wrote on Twitter late Tuesday night: “Lmaooo,” while further tweeting about a Simpsons gif related to “Old Man Yells at Cloud” photo manipulation.
Musk did not immediately return The Daily Beast’s request for comment on Tuesday night.
Throughout the day, Trump also attacked the House committee on January 6, giving endorsements to MAGA-friendly candidates and sharing baseless claims that the 2020 election was ” cheat”.
‘Fraud and irregularities are unbelievable,’ ex-president raged after committee tasked with investigating Capitol riots revealed that Trump tried to contact a witness has not yet appeared before the panel, creating the possibility of witness interference.
