Elon Musk responded to former President Donald Trump’s claim that Musk is “another bull—t artist.” Trump was referring to Musk backing out of the Twitter deal and saying Musk voted for him, although Musk says that he voted Republican for the first timeTexas Rep. Mayra Floweres will be in Texas by 2022.
Musk said the deal was off, citing Twitter’s “bot” problem, but this could be far from over, as Musk’s deal might be settled in court. Trump stated these words during his Anchorage rally, Alaska.
“Elon. Elon. Elon. He’s not going to buy Twitter … And where did you hear that before? From me … He’s got himself a mess, I’ve looked at his contract … Ya know, Elon says he’s never voted Republican, but I didn’t know that because he told me that he voted for me, so he’s another bull—t artist.”
Musk has not stated whether or not he voted to support Trump, Biden, and/or at all for 2020. He did however mention that he voted 2008-2012 for ex-President Barack Obama.
Musk said that Trump was leaning toward and would likely be a good candidate for the job. voteRon DeSantis (R.FL) Florida Governor in 2024, should he wish to run for president.
Musk today responded to Trump via Twitter
“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 claimed he’d vote Republican. However, it doesn’t seem likely that Musk will vote for Trump in 2024. Musk also said 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. If DeSantis runs against Biden in 2024, then DeSantis will easily win – he doesn’t even need to campaign.”
When syndicated talkshow host Joe Pagliarulo mentioned the Trump administration’s accomplishments, Elon said:
“Yeah, but too much drama. Are we truly willing to have a bull fighting in a chinashop every day? Also, I think the legal maximum age for start of Presidential term should be 69.”

A Michigan teacher who voted to support Biden in 2020 was recently revealed in a New York Times/Sienna College Poll:
“I’m just going to come out and say it: I want younger blood … I am so tired of all old people running our country. I don’t want someone knocking on death’s door.”
The primary will be fascinating if Trump and DeSantis both run in 2024. Musk however has indicated that he will back DeSantis, if he does.
