Trump says he could have made Musk ‘drop to his knees and beg’ for federal subsidies

A day after Musk had tweeted that Trump was “too old” to run for another term as President and “too much drama,” Trump escalated the feud on Tuesday with a series of posts on his own social media platform Truth Social.

Trump posted a photo of himself with Musk in the White House, saying: “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.”

Responding to the jabs from the former President, Musk wrote “Lmaooo” on Twitter late the same evening, followed by a Simpsons GIF referencing the meme “Old Man Yells at Cloud.”

Musk also replied to a Breitbart News tweet of Trump calling him “another bullsh*t artist,” saying it was time for Trump to “hang up his hat & sail into the sunset.”

Responding to a comment in the same thread, Musk said that Trump was “too much drama,” and that the “legal maximum age” for beginning a presidency should be 69.

Trump was 70 when he was inaugurated as President in 2017. At age 76, he is strongly contemplating a third bid for the presidency in 2024.

“Trump would be 82 at end of term,” replied Musk in the same thread, saying he is “too old to be chief executive of anything.”

Musk also claimed that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis would “easily win” the presidency in 2024 if he ran against Trump and Biden, that “he doesn’t even need to campaign.”
