Former President Donald Trump called Elon Musk a “bulls-t artist” as he searched for Republican midterm elections in Anchorage, Alaska Saturday night.
Trump, 76, told supporters he predicted the world’s richest man would not continue buying Twitter as he promoted the platform that banned him and his social media company Truth Social.
Musk, 51, withdrew from a $44 billion deal to buy the company Friday after claiming it failed to disclose information about its fake accounts.
Trump also claimed that the boss of SpaceX and Tesla voted for him and then lied about it.
“You know, he said the other day, ‘Oh, I’ve never voted for a Republican.’ I said, “I didn’t know that, he told me he voted for me.” So he’s another bulls-t artist,” the Republican said.
The joke came after Musk said last month that he “tended” to back GOP Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for president in 2024.
Trump would strongly consider a third consecutive candidacy for president.
He was joined onstage at his “Save America” rally by US House candidate and former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, as well as Senate candidate Kelly Tshibaka, who is battling to overthrow Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski.
