Biden Takes Shot at Elon Musk [Video]
President Joe Biden took a shot at Tesla CEO Elon Musk, dismissing his concerns about the economy and saying “lots of luck on his trip to the moon.”
Earlier this week, Musk reportedly told Tesla executives that he had a “super bad feeling” about the economy and that the company needed to cut 10 percent of its salaried workers.
A reporter asked Biden about Musk’s outlook on the economy.
Biden responded by pointing to new investments in electric vehicles that will bring new jobs to Ford and Chrysler.
“So, you know, lots of luck on his trip to the moon,” Biden said.
Musk responded to Biden’s comments on Twitter, writing, “Thanks Mr President!” alongside a link to a story about NASA utilizing SpaceX to take Americans to the moon.
