Did The Trump-Musk Bromance Just ‘Set Sail Into The Sunset’ For Good?

I love a good “bromance” story, but not when it ends in heartbreak which is apparently the direction Elon Musk and Donald Trump’s relationship is headed.

Over the past few weeks, tension has escalated between the two, to the point where former President Donald Trump is viciously attacking Elon Must for his not so wanted suggestive rhetoric on Twitter. Trump finally had enough and exploded Tuesday on Truth Social.

THE BACKSTORY:

Musk said on Monday, “I don’t hate the man, but it’s time for Trump to hang up his hat & sail into the sunset.”

Musk, who previously said he was leaning towards supporting Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for president in 2024, said DeSantis would easily defeat President Joe Biden in the election.

Musk’s remarks were in response to comments Trump made at a political rally on Saturday where he called Musk a “Bull***t artist” for claiming that he had never voted Republican until this June. “He told me he voted for me,” Trump said.

WATCH:

Trump, clearly outraged with the statement, fired back at Musk’s Twitter post with a barrage of Truth Social attacks.

Trump posted, “When Elon Musk came to the White House asking me for help on all of his many subsidized projects, whether it’s electric cars that don’t drive long enough, driverless cars that crash, or rocketships to nowhere, without which subsidies he’d be worthless, and telling me how he was a big Trump fan and Republican, I could have said, “drop to your knees and beg,” and he would have done it…

Within the same hour, Trump also posted two more “Truths” relentlessly slamming Elon Musk for his unwanted political comments, suggesting that “Elon should focus on getting himself out of the Twitter mess because he could owe $44 billion for something that’s perhaps worthless. Also, lots of competition for electric cars!”

Trump landed one final punch against the Tesla billionaire when he wrapped up the attack by giving Jack Dorsey the nod to go after Elon for pulling out of the $44 billion deal. “P.S., Why was Elon allowed to break the $15 million stock purchase barrier on Twitter without any reporting? That is a very serious breach! Have fun Elon and @jack, go to it!”

How Donald Trump and Elon Musk got to the point of possibly no return is beyond me, but it certainly doesn’t help either of them work towards the same common ground.

Elon should have definitely kept his mouth shut regarding Trump being too old to run for politics as it only hurts his chances. I get it, he was originally slamming Joe Biden for being too old, but instead of going after 45 while defending his position, he should have mentioned the fact that cognitively Trump and Biden are lightyears apart.

Elon has a massive 101 million followers on Twitter and is very influential amongst both the Democrat and Republican parties. His comments on Twitter hold a lot of weight and can do serious damage to either side, and Trump knows it. I don’t blame him for lashing out at Elon, but let’s be honest, it could have probably been handled better. At this point, because of how Trump viciously attacked Musk, it only gives the Democrats more firing power to use against the former President as they attempt to shut him down before the 2024 Presidential election.

I hope the two heavy hitters kiss and make up, but we’re dealing with a lot of egos here, so it’s going to take more than just a simple apology from either side. One thing’s for sure, however – they both play for the same team, and need to get over themselves if we stand a chance at winning back the White House in 2024. The GOP is already fractured, and this certainly doesn’t help.
