The jabbing continues

What appears to be a feud is turning into a comic interlude between former President Donald Trump and Tesla founder Elon Musk. The throwing of words at each other is escalating on social media. It's a binge-watching show in the net world as the two billionaires are not throwing dollars at each other but continuing to take word jabs at each other.

The game is going on

It's fun to watch for people who love a show and chew some chips while they scribble 120 characters on the microblogging site. It looks like Donald Trump is in a mood to mess things up a little bit; nice try, though, as Elon Musk is always ready with Impromptu answers.

Enough drama and chaos

Donald Trump was in a mood and suddenly jumped on the back of the wild horse by taking the dispute to a new level. On Tuesday evening, he took to Truth Social and went on a full-blown blast on Musk. Truth be said, it made headlines enough even to make a mole notice that is living under the crust of Earth. In the Truth Social post, Donald Trump talked about a rendezvous and recalled his meeting with Elon Musk at the White House when Trump was serving his presidency.

The narrative is too much to handle

As a reputed media outlet reported, Donald Trump claimed that Elon Musk had sung him praises during their meeting and that Elon Musk went ga ga over him. Later in the post, the former dramatic President continued that they had long discussions on technology when they met. After that, further, in the post, he criticized the billionaire's electric cars and all other space exploration projects.

In the words of Donald Trump

"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 rocket ships 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."

Enough drama for Twitterati

This statement of Donald Trump has sparked enough drama that Kendall Jenner is already rolling her eyes and sipping her tea. Donald Trump acted like a full-blown narcissist looking at social media instead of watching a mirror. No wonder Kanye West used to dance around on Twitter during Trump's tenure. 

Touching on controversial topics

Donald Trump also talked about Elon Musk's failed attempt to purchase Twitter - mocked him for failing to gain access to a micro-blogging site being a tech giant. Donald Trump gave his personal opinion on Elon Musk's future projects.

In the words of Donald Trump

"Now Elon should focus on getting himself out of the Twitter mess because he could owe $44 billion for something that’s perhaps worthless.” The Freedom of speech is screaming at the constitution of the United States through Donald Trump. “Also, lots of competition for electric cars!" the former President wrote in Truth Social.

Elon Musk and Twitter

Elon Musk has previously committed that he will repurchase Twitter in April. Things became socially chaotic back then. However, in the past several months, Elon Musk has claimed that he has been trying to gain access to the bot accounts to remove them permanently, but Twitter's present board did not share all the documents, which led him to back out of the deal. He openly claimed that he would unban Donald Trump once he buys Twitter. However, that's a story people will talk about on Twitter itself.

The world of Twitter and tech giant

Elon Musk cited his difference of opinion with the present CEO of Twitter and formally gave up on purchasing the platform earlier this month. His only concerns were about the number of bots and fake users on Twitter, and he was on a mission to eradicate them. However, that's history now, as he has not bought Twitter, and Donald Trump has found a way to make news about it. Some expert analysts have criticized the tech giant and interpreted that Elon Musk is making excuses. However, Twitter has launched a lawsuit against the Tesla owner this week.

The open political support

Elon Musk has recently given his opinion regarding his viewpoints on his political inclination. He suggested that he would be openly backing Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for the presidential election in 2024. Everybody in the social media world knows Joe Biden has left a bad taste in the mouth of the SpaceX owner. However, he looks like he wants to show it off publicly.

Americans want a change in the ruler

Regardless of what Elon Musk wants, Ron DeSantis has not replied to Elon Musk's proposal, nor has he officially made any announcement regarding his running for the White House. However, many Republican insiders are already egging him as a potential contender against Joe Biden. People are frustrated with Joe Biden by now keeping the fact that the USA economy is inclining towards recession.

The claims and facades

Nevertheless, Elon Musk's endorsing Ron DeSantis did not go well with Donald Trump, who took a dig at him at a rally last week. The former President called Elon Musk a "bullsh*t artist." Donald Trump further claimed that Elon Musk never intended to buy the micro-blogging site Twitter in the first place. In short, the former President meant that the tech billionaire just did a little drama to gain some news. On the other hand, individuals used to think Kanye West was the one to make the most political drama during the tenure of Donald Trump.

Not going to keep quiet

This week, Elon Musk gave a crisp response to Donald Trump. Elon Musk is not someone who is going to accept such a berating comment towards him quietly. So, he decided to hit below the belt; while the former President gave the benefit of the doubt by chiding Musk's gizmo and gadget talents, Elon Musk shot back at the aging process of Trump as he is on his way to fight for the election 2024.

Hitting below the belt

The Tesla founder took to Twitter to have a sparkling debate regarding the world's obsession with the older adults ruling over them. Nevertheless, he added that the former President should retire from politics as he is growing old and not fit to sit in the President's seat.
