(RightIsRight.co) – What once seemed like a friendly relationship between Elon Musk and former President Donald Trump is now open verbal combat between the two titans.
Musk has fired the latest salvo as he has now called on Trump to get out of politics so that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis will have a clear shot at winning the presidency for the GOP in 2024.
As the conservative Washington Times is reporting in, “Musk calls for Trump’s political exit, says DeSantis would ‘easily win’ against Biden in 2024”:
“Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk called for former President Donald Trump to quit politics, escalating a war of words between the influential billionaires with their eyes on dominating the social media marketplace.
“I don’t hate the man, but it’s time for Trump to hang up his hat & sail into the sunset,” Mr. Musk said on Twitter. “Dems should also call off the attack — don’t make it so that Trump’s only way to survive is to regain the presidency.”
Mr. Musk’s commentary was posted in response to a video of Mr. Trump’s remarks at a political rally in Alaska hammering Mr. Musk after he publicly sought to walk away from taking over Twitter.” [emphasis added]
As for Musk’s belief about DeSantis:
“Mr. Musk is enamored with a different Republican — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
“‘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,’ Mr. Musk said on Twitter. ‘If DeSantis runs against Biden in 2024, then DeSantis will easily win — he doesn’t even need to campaign.’” [emphasis added]
Following Musk’s remarks and tweets, Twitter lit up with Trump supporters blasting Musk.
