Trump Throws Jab At Elon Musk During Rally


President Trump at his latest rally in Alaska threw some shade on billionaire Elon Musk.

During the rally, Trump reminded his supporters that several months ago he predicted Elon would back out of buying Twitter.

Trump would go on to say Elon Musk is “a bullsh*t artist” for claiming last month was the first time he voted for a Republican.

The 45th president would go on to reveal Musk previously told him that he voted for him in 2016.

Watch it here:

The Hill dropped these details:

President Trump during an event in Alaska late Saturday called Tesla CEO Elon Musk a “bullshit artist” for supporting the former president’s opponents in 2016 and 2020.

“He said the other day, ‘Oh, I’ve never voted for a Republican,’” Trump said at a rally.

“I said, ‘I didn’t know that,’” Trump continued. “He told me he voted for me, so he’s another bullshit artist.”

Last month, Musk tweeted that he voted for a Republican for the first time in Mayra Flores, who flipped a traditionally Democratic House seat in a Texas special election.

The Tesla CEO donated to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, according to Federal Elections Commission data. Musk has since confirmed the donation.

Musk said at the Qatar Economic Forum last month that he was “undecided” about a potential reelection bid by Trump after saying days earlier he was leaning toward supporting Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) in 2024.


Newsweek added these details:

Donald Trump once called Elon Musk “one of our great geniuses,” comparing him to inventor Thomas Edison.

But the former president’s relationship with the Tesla CEO appears to have soured.

At his rally in Anchorage, Alaska, on Saturday, Trump branded the billionaire “another bulls***” artist,” saying Musk had claimed that he voted for him in the 2016 election.

Last month, Musk tweeted that his vote for Mayra Flores, who won a Texas special election, was the “first time I ever voted Republican.” And in remarks during a tech summit in May, Musk said he has voted “overwhelmingly for Democrats” in the past and “might never have voted for a Republican.”
