Time for Trump to ‘Sail into Sunset’ Musk Says 

The world’s richest man Elon Musk said it is time for Donald Trump to “hang up his hat and sail into the sunset.” 

The remark comes days after the former president mocked Musk at a political rally, calling him a “bullshit artist,” blasting him for not buying Twitter, as well as for apparently not voting for him in the 2020 presidential election.  

Musk tweeted his response back, saying: “I don’t hate the man, but it’s time for Trump to hang up his hat & sail into the sunset.” Musk added another line to the tweet without any further explanation, aimed at the Democrat party. 

“Dems should also call off the attack — don’t make it so that Trump’s only way to survive is to regain the Presidency,” he tweeted. 

At a rally in Anchorage, Alaska over the weekend, Trump brought up the news that Tesla CEO was no longer buying Twitter, and said the Tesla chief executive had gotten himself into a mess. 

“Elon, Elon is not gonna buy Twitter,” Trump said, claiming he had said this before. “Well, he might later who the hell knows what’s going to happen? He’s got a pretty rotten contract, elegant, his contract, not a good contract,” Trump rambled. 

“(Musk) said the other day, I’ve never voted for a Republican. I said I didn’t know that; he told me he voted for me,” Trump complained. 

“He’s another bullshit artist, but he is not going to be buying it,” Trump said, referring to purchasing Twitter.

The rally was focused on Trump supporting U.S. House of Representatives candidate Sarah Palin and the U.S. Senate candidate Kelly Tshibaka. But Trump trailed away from the main topic, and instead got some digs in at Musk. 

After the rally, Musk responded to a tweet including Trump’s quote about how Musk told him that he voted for him. Musk simply said, “not true”. 

In June at the Qatar Economic Forum, Musk said he had not yet decided who he would support in the next presidential election. That came a week after he publicly said on Twitter he was leaning toward supporting controversial Republican Florida governor Ron DeSantis for president in 2024. 

This week, Musk added to this on Twitter, saying that if DeSantis ran against President Joe Biden in the 2024 election, “DeSantis will easily win.” 

Tesla CEO also pointed out that Trump would be 82 at the end of his term, saying he was “too old to be chief executive of anything, let alone the United States of America.” 

Asked by a conservative talk show host on Twitter about what Musk’s issues with Trump are, Musk said there was “too much drama.” 

“Do we really want a bull in a china shop situation every single day!?” Musk said.
