Elon Musk: Time for Donald Trump to hang up his hat and ‘sail into the sunset’

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, suggested on Monday that former President Donald Trump “hang up his hat & sail into the sunset.” Musk, the celebrity CEO, sent the following message on Twitter, where he has more than 100 million followers. He stated, “I don’t dislike the guy, but it’s time for Trump to hang up his hat and sail into the sunset.” Dems should stop their onslaught as well; don’t make it such that Trump can only survive by winning the Presidency again.

A year-long investigation of the Jan. 6, 2021 riot by a violent mob of Trump supporters at the U.S. Capitol has resulted in preliminary conclusions that are being presented in public hearings by a bipartisan House select committee. Tuesday morning is set aside for the panel’s next public hearing. Trump referred to Musk as a “bull—— artist” over the weekend, saying that Musk had previously admitted to voting for him.

On Monday night, Musk tweeted to refute that assertion and respond to Trump. The champion of a special election in South Texas in June, Mayra Flores, was the first Republican the Tesla CEO claimed to have supported. Earlier this month, Musk also said he was “leaning” toward supporting Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in the event that he decides to run for president in 2024.

Musk made his remarks on Trump during a stressful day for his enterprises. His reusable rocket business, SpaceX, performed a ground test of a rocket booster at Boca Chica, Texas, which resulted in an unanticipated explosion.

On Monday, Musk also encountered legal resistance from Twitter after attempting to back out of a previous agreement he made to buy the social network for $54.20 a share.

According to Twitter, his justification for ending the agreement was “invalid and unjust.” Following news of two dozen additional instances there, Shanghai increased mass testing for Covid, which led to a Monday fall in Tesla shares, Musk’s electric car manufacturer. The tests sparked worries about a revival and more lockdowns that would disrupt Tesla’s manufacturing operations in China once again.
