Entrepreneur Elon Musk took a hilarious shot at Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren after she called him “the world’s richest freeloader.”
In response to the Massachusetts senator’s attack, he noted that he is going to pay $11 billion in taxes this year, so he is hardly a “freeloader.”
Per the https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10328577/Elon-Musk-says-pay-11BILLION-taxes-Elizabeth-Warren-called-freeloader.htmlDaily Mail:
Musk could face a tax bill of more than $10billion in 2021, which could be the largest individual payment to the Internal Revenue Service, according to calculations by Bloomberg News.
It comes amid claims that Musk ‘paid nothing’ in federal income taxes in 2018 and less than $70,000 in 2015 and 2017, while Warren dubbed Musk ‘the world’s richest freeloader’ amid a row over the billionaire’s taxes.
Musk responded to her criticism by saying that he ‘will pay more taxes than any American in history this year’.
Musk is currently the richest man in the world with a net worth of $265.4billion, as of last Monday, followed closely behind by Amazon’s Jeff Bezos.
His company Tesla is worth about $1trillion and over the last few weeks, Musk has sold nearly $14billion worth of Tesla shares.
Musk went on, to blast Warren.
“You remind me of when I was a kid and my friend’s angry Mom would just randomly yell at everyone for no reason,’ Musk continued. “Please don’t call the manager on me, Senator Karen.”
Once again, we see ow much Democrats hate wealth producers.
