Things are getting ugly.
As you already know, former President Donald Trump and billionaire Elon Musk have been going back and forth on social media attacking each other for a number of issues.
It began when former President Donald Trump called out Musk for withdrawing his bid to purchase Twitter and saying he never voted for a Republican in the past. Trump said at a recent rally, “(Musk) said the other day, ‘I’ve never voted for a Republican.’ I said I didn’t know that; he told me he voted for me. He’s another bullshit artist, but he is not going to be buying it (Twitter).”

Musk didn’t take kindly to Trump’s words and then fired back at him and said, “I don’t hate the man, but it’s time for Trump to hang up his hat & sail into the sunset. Dems should also call off the attack – don’t make it so that Trump’s only way to survive is to regain the Presidency.”

Musk then said Trump would be too old to be president again and endorsed DeSantis instead.
Trump then unleashed on Musk via Truth Social and said, “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 then said, “Now Elon should focus on getting himself out of the Twitter mess because he could owe $44 billion for something that’s perhaps worthless. Also, lots of competition for electric cars!”
