Trump criticizes Elon Musk, and says he could have made him ‘drop to his knees and beg’

Elon Musk has responded to former President Donald Trump’s allegation that he is too old to run for office by saying that he could have forced the world’s richest man to “drop to [his] knees and beg” while he was in White House.

Musk, 51, has been involved in an ongoing verbal war with Trump, using his Twitter rival Truth Social to criticize him. On Monday, Musk said it was time for Trump to “hang up his hat & sail into the sunset.”

“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,” the 45th commander-in-chief claimed.

“Now Elon should focus on getting himself out of the Twitter mess because he could owe $44 billion for something that’s perhaps worthless,” Trump wrote of Musk, who faces legal action after pulling out of his much-hyped offer to buy the social media giant.

“Also, lots of competition for electric cars!” Trump insisted on Tesla.

“P.S. Why was Elon allowed to break the $15 million stock purchase barrier on Twitter without any reporting? That is a very serious breach!” the former president added.

“Have fun Elon and [Jack Dorsey] go to it!” he wrote, referring to the Twitter founder who had supported Musk’s plans to take over.

When Dorsey created a @Jack account on Truth Social with Trump as the only account it follows, the former president tagged it with the comment “whenever you’re ready.”

In response to a video of the space pioneer Trump calling him “another bulls-t artist,” Musk questioned Trump’s age.

“I don’t hate the man, but it’s time for Trump to hang up his hat & sail into the sunset,” the world’s richest person tweeted in response to Trump’s comments.

According to Forbes, Musk is worth more than $225 billion. He also asserted that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis would “easily win” a presidential election if he ran against Donald Trump, saying, “He doesn’t even need to campaign.”
