Ilon Musk wrote his comment on Twitter in Russian.
"Elon Musk threatens to deprive people of work if he is not allowed to risk their health. Capitalism at its worst”, - Reich wrote.
“Idiot”, - Elon Musk answered.
After some time, the head of Tesla said that he wanted to call the politician a “boring idiot”.
We recall that on May 9, Elon Musk announced that he was moving Tesla's headquarters from Silicon Valley (Palo Alto) in connection with the ban on the resumption of the company's factory in California. Musk noted that the production in Fremont can also be moved to another place. He said that everything will depend on "how the authorities will relate to Tesla in the future." On March 23, the plant was temporarily closed due to the threat of the spread of coronavirus.
Musk previously called "fascist" the measures introduced for self-isolation.
"This is not democratic, this is not freedom. Give people back their damn freedom”, - wrote Elon Musk, adding that depriving people of the opportunity to leave their homes is “fascist”.
