What Donald Trump’s Elon Musk tweet is saying? In a string of tweets on the Truth Social network on Tuesday, former president Donald Trump stepped up the saga with self-made billionaire Elon Musk.
Only a day after Musk tweeted that it was time for the former President to “sail into the sunset,” Trump wrote three postings criticizing Musk on Tuesday night.
“When Elon Musk came to the White House asking me for help on all of his many subsidized projects, whether it’s electric cars that don’t drive long enough, driverless cars that crash, or rocketships to nowhere, without which subsidies he’d be worthless, and telling me how he was a big Trump fan and Republican, I could have said, ‘drop to your knees and beg,’ and he would have done it.”
Trump also appeared to be gloating at Musk’s involvement in the Twitter lawsuit.
“Now that he potentially owes $44 billion for something that may be worthless, Elon should concentrate on sorting himself out of the Twitter issue. There is also a ton of rivalry for electric vehicles!” Trump said.
Musk was helped by Trump when he was in office. For instance, Musk had Trump’s support in 2020 when he disobeyed the law and reopened his California Tesla factory in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Elon Musk’s respond
Musk, meanwhile, didn’t seem to be bothered by Trump’s slurs on Tuesday. Musk answered with a tweet of his own, writing: “Lmaooo,” to a Twitter user who had tagged him in a screenshot of Trump’s remark on Tuesday.
Musk responded by mockingly animating a picture of Grampa Simpson from “The Simpsons” appearing to scream and wave his fist out a window.

At a rally over the weekend, Trump referred to Musk as a “bullshit artist” and accused the businessman of lying about supporting him in 2016. This is when the recent argument between Musk and Trump started.
Musk responded by tweeting that while he did not “hate” Trump, he believed it was time for him to “hang up his hat.”
Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida, was predicted by Elon Musk to be his choice to run for president in 2024. Nevertheless, despite being strong front-runners in the race, neither Trump nor DeSantis have formally announced their intentions to run.
Requests for a response from Insider were not immediately answered by Musk’s aides at Tesla and SpaceX.
