It’s time for former US President Donald Trump to “hang up his hat & sail into the sunset,” Elon Musk tweeted on Monday. Musk was responding to a tweet from Breitbart News featuring a video of Trump calling the Tesla CEO “another bullshit artist” at a rally on Saturday in Anchorage, Alaska.

 

At the rally, Trump said Musk had personally told him that he voted for him in 2016. Musk took to Twitter to contest Trump’s claim, tweeting “Not true” on July 12 in response to a Bongino Report tweet about the rally. Trump’s claim also contradicts comments Musk made at a Miami tech conference in May, where the Tesla CEO said he has voted “overwhelmingly” for Democrats in the past and “might never have voted for a Republican.” 

In a thread under the Breitbart News’ tweet, Musk added that there should be a “legal maximum age” of 69 for those starting presidential terms.

 

Trump, who is 76, has been teasing a presidential run for the 2024 election. He was 70 at the time of his inauguration in 2017. On Sunday, Trump wrote on his social-media platform Truth Social that “life begins at 80.” 

“President Biden is one of the oldest 79s in History, but by and of itself, he is not an old man,” wrote Trump. “There are many people in their 80s, and even 90s, that are as good and sharp as ever. Biden is not one of them, but it has little to do with his age. In actuality, life begins at 80!”
