Elon Musk said that “it’s time for Trump to hang up his hat & sail into the sunset” after the former president called him “another bullshit artist” during a weekend rally in Alaska.
“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 tweeted.

Musk recently said he voted Republican for the first time when he voted for Texas Rep. Mayra Flores — who last month flipped a seat in a historically Democrat region along the southern border. But Trump said that Musk “told me he voted for me, so he’s another bullshit artist.”
Musk also noted that “Trump would be 82 at end of term, which is too old to be chief executive of anything, let alone the United States of America,” and added, “If [Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R)] runs against Biden in 2024, then DeSantis will easily win – he doesn’t even need to campaign.”
In response, Trump took to Truth Social to blast the Tesla CEO and his “many subsidized projects, whether it’s electric cars that don’t drive long enough, driverless cars that crash, or rocketships to nowhere.”
“I could have said, ‘drop to your knees and beg,’ and he would have done it,” Trump wrote.
The former president next pivoted to Twitter’s lawsuit against Musk filed Tuesday to force the billionaire entrepreneur to follow through on his $44 billion deal to acquire the platform. “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. “Also, lots of competition for electric cars!” he added.
Musk responded to the controversy over his decision to pull out of his Twitter deal on Monday by tweeting a meme with himself laughing about the platform’s refusal to disclose “bot info” and how the company will be now forced to do so by its own lawsuit.
“They said I couldn’t buy Twitter. Then they wouldn’t disclose bot info. Now they want to force me to buy Twitter in court. Now they have to disclose bot info in court,” the meme says.
