That may be one of the things that supporters of former President Donald Trump love most about him. No matter who it is, when he feels wronged, Donald Trump fights back. In a way, he’s telling conservatives that they can fight back.
It’s a far cry from the style of the usual Republicans, who apologize for their beliefs and embrace the media in the false belief that they will be treated fairly.
Trump’s most recent back and forth was with SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk. Here are two people who didn’t live up to their standard of living because they were passive and now have their sights set on each other.
The ongoing spat has escalated, with Trump completely scorched earth for the futuristic inventor.

a piece of scorched earth
Trump’s latest salvo at Musk was a post on Trump’s social media platform Truth Social. In it, Trump essentially said that Musk and many of his efforts would be “worthless” without substantial government subsidies.
Trump also claimed that Musk “told me he was a big Trump fan and a Republican and I could have said, ‘Get down on your knees and beg and he’ll do it…'”

Trump followed up with several posts mentioning Musk’s court battle over a possible takeover of Twitter. At one point, he appeared to taunt Musk for his Twitter failure.
Trump then made a final taunt, pulling in former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
How it all started
It was Donald Trump who let people know what he thought of Elon Musk Apparent double talk, at a rally in Alaska Last weekend congressional candidate Sarah Palin, Gov. Mike Dunleavy and Republican Senate lead nominee Kelly Zibaka.
Trump referred to a recent statement from Musk in which he said he voted for newly elected Rep. Mela Flores (R-TX) in a special election, his first vote for a Republican partisan.
Trump’s response was the reason his supporters attended his rallies. He said, “The other day he said, ‘Oh, I never voted Republican. I said, ‘I don’t know,’ and he told me he voted for me, so he’s another bullshit artist. “
Musk responded of Trump: “I don’t hate this guy, but it’s It’s time for Trump to hang his hat & Sail towards sunset. “
The answer prompted some questions from radio talk show host Joe “Joe Pug” Pagliarulo, who asked Musk: “Your answer makes no sense. What opinion on the post?” Pagliarulo then listed some of Trump’s key achievements.
Your answer is meaningless. What questions do you have about his presidency:
destroy the Islamic State
XL pipeline under construction
Russian pipeline stopped
borders under control
What – on policy – do you have any questions?

In response to Pagliarulo, Musk commented that Trump was “too dramatic.” Musk also hinted that he feels Trump is too old to run in 2024.
Yeah, it’s just too much drama. Do we really want to have a bull in a china shop every day! ?
Also, I think the legal maximum age to start a presidential term should be 69.

As you can imagine, it has all the elements of an ongoing feud between the two giants.
2024 may support Musk
If Donald Trump runs and becomes the Republican nominee in 2024, whether he and Elon Musk will reconcile and become BFFs again is anyone’s guess. Musk said in a tweet that he may be leaning towards who he is over Trump.
In a June tweet from the Tesla owner’s Silicon Valley Twitter page, Musk was asked “what do you lean toward,” referring to the 2024 election. Musk’s answer was simple, “DeSantis” refers to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

DeSantis is desperate Not only thanks to Musk’s “endorsement”,” but could also tweak the left a little bit. He replied: “I’m focused on 2022. But always thanks to African Americans for their support! Musk was born in South Africa and is a naturalized U.S. citizen.
