Elon Musk is going at it with Bill Gates again following a series of tweets in which he slammed one of his predecessors as the world’s richest man for maintaining a $2 billion short position on Tesla shares.
Quite the Survey
Musk responded to one user who joked that they trusted Musk but not Gates after sharing a Twitter survey asking his followers if they believed politicians or billionaires to be less trustworthy, with 75% saying they did.
How It Reignited
According to the New York Post, Musk’s feud with Gates over the stock first surfaced in early April when a text message exchange between the two revealed Musk confronting Gates about his $500 million short position in Tesla stock.
