Watch: ‘Another Bullsh** Artist’: Donald Trump Takes Jab at Elon Musk for Withdrawing Twitter Deal

Musk Trump news

Earlier this weekend, Tesla’s CEO submitted a filing to the US Securities and Exchange Commission to withdraw his $44 billion purchase of Twitter, as he accused the social media giant of breaching the contract..

Ex-president Donald Trump suddenly lashed out at billionaire Elon Musk, calling him “a BS artist” during his Saturday speech in Anchorage, Alaska. The 45th criticized Musk for backing off with his Twitter purchase deal, reminding that he’d previously warned it would fizzle out.

“Elon. Elon is not going to buy Twitter. Where did you hear that before? From me,” Trump said. “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 bullsh** artist.”

In the end, he urged people not to bother with Twitter and sign up for the Truth social platform instead.

Musk put the purchase on hold in May in order to allow his team to review the veracity of Twitter’s claim that less than 5% of accounts on the platform are bots or spam.

The businessman later said in his filing, demanding to withdraw the deal, that Twitter had made “false and misleading representation” and failed to provide crucial details about its operations. At the same time, the platform said it would sue the billionaire to complete the merger.

  1. Trumps just after attention again, running his big mouth but not saying anything substantive as usual, Elon however doesn’t say much but swings a mighty club, Trumps right Elon doesn’t want to buy Twitter, twitter is beyond redemption, if he brought it the employees would destroy if from within so Elon is just going to destroy it from without. Elon claims Biden’s followers are more than 50% bots, Twitter is crawling with bots and has a small woke army that is amplified far beyond its actual size but as soon as they put on paper that they only had 5% bots and submitted that to the SEC they were f**ked, game over.
    Next the courtroom/lawyer battle starts and that is where Elon takes down the most toxic social media platform in the world and skins all the shitlibs that invested in it.

    • Trump doesn’t need attention – if you weren’t so self-absorbed with your teaching everyone else what (isn’t) going on, you’d have noticed his support is growing existentially.

      Trump was saying that Musk is BS artist Because he earlier said he was a dumbocrat voter until just now, but had previously told Trump he was a republican voter. THAT is what trump called Musk a BS artist over and Trump is right, Musk for all his cleverness didn’t see the dumbocrat’s coming. Pretty poor for such a bright boy isn’t it?

      But your right, Musk was NEVER going to buy Twatter – he’s bringing a flame thrower to a barbecue. Good job too.

  2. So if Twitter sues Elon, they have to then show in court how many bots they actually have.

    Then everyone realises how corrupt Twitter is, the shares fall and Elon buys Twitter for even less?

    Never underestimate Elon.

    I am not sure if he’s our saviour or the opposite. I want to think the former, but he dated Amber Heard and supposedly made donations to charities on her behalf so ……..????? ????

    • We get it. You don’t like Trump. Buy you are simply a confused dumbocrat – you hate Trump but hate everything else, so what do you really hate? Looks to me like you hate facts.
