Trump: 'Elon Musk Would Be Worthless without Government Subsidies'
Trump said Musk offered big promises without delivering many rewards
Former President Donald Trump blasted billionaire Elon Musk on TRUTH Social on Tuesday saying he would be “worthless” without government subsidies.
Trump recalled Musk's visit to the White House during his presidency saying he wanted government subsidies for many of his projects.
Trump said Musk offered big promises without delivering many rewards.
"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."
The former president further said Musk would have dropped to his knees and begged if he had asked him to during that meeting.
“I could have said, ‘drop to your knees and beg,’ and he would have done it,” said Trump.
“Now Elon should focus on getting himself out of the Twitter mess because he could owe $44 billion for something that’s perhaps worthless."
I don’t hate the man, but it’s time for Trump to hang up his hat & sail into the sunset.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 12, 2022
Dems should also call off the attack – don’t make it so that Trump’s only way to survive is to regain the Presidency.
"Also, lots of competition for electric cars!”
Trump’s hits against Musk on Truth Social comes after he referred to the billionaire as a “bullshit artist” following his backing out of the acquisition of Twitter.
“He’s got himself a mess, you know, he said the other day, ‘I’ve never voted for a Republican.’ I said I didn’t know that," Trump said.
"He told me he voted for me. So he’s another bullshit artist but he’s not going to be buying it, although he might later,” Trump said over the weekend.
“Who the hell knows what’s going to happen? He’s got a pretty rotten contract," he continued.
"I looked at his contract, not a good contract. Sign up for Truth. We love Truth,” he added.
In response, Musk said that the former president should “hang up his hat & sail into the sunset.”
“I don’t hate the man, but it’s time for Trump to hang up his hat & sail into the sunset," he said.
"Dems should also call off the attack – don’t make it so that Trump’s only way to survive is to regain the Presidency,” he tweeted.
