Musk Responds Directly To Trump After He Was Called A 'Bullsh*t Artist'
In a series of tweets, Elon Musk said he "does not hate" Trump, but that his days at the forefront of politics should be done.
Musk also suggested Democrats were enabling Trump’s potential return to the White House — which he said should also stop.
"Dems should also call off the attack – don’t make it so that Trump’s only way to survive is to regain the Presidency," Musk added.
I don’t hate the man, but it’s time for Trump to hang up his hat & sail into the sunset.
Dems should also call off the attack – don’t make it so that Trump’s only way to survive is to regain the Presidency.

A Twitter user then asked Musk what issues he had with Trump's presidency, to which he replied, "Yeah, but too much drama. Do you really want a bull in a china shop situation every single day!?"
Musk's rant didn't go by without challengers including one user who called him out for contradicting himself:
your response makes no sense. What about his presidency did you have a problem with:
XL Pipeline Being Constructed
Russian Pipeline Stopped
Border Under Control
What -- on policy -- did you have an issue with?

Previous Story and what happened:
It looks like Tesla's CEO is backing out of the deal with Twitter have months of tension and deception from the company. During a rally Saturday in Alaska, Trump slammed Musk dubbing him a "bullshit artist" before urging supporters to join his social media platform, TruthSocial which was dubbed one of the fastest-growing social apps online.
He's a "bullshit artist", Trump presented as he promoted his platform, TruthSocial, as the only for-free-speech social media platform on the web. He urged supporters to join and help build it up even more.
“Elon is not going to buy Twitter,” Trump said. “Where did you hear that before? From me.”
“He’s got himself a mess,” Trump continued. “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 bullshit artist.”
Musk canceled his bid for Twitter Friday, according to a letter published by his lawyer:
The letter alleges that Twitter “appears to have made false and misleading representations” and “has not complied with its contractual obligations.” The letter further alleges that Twitter refused to hand over data to Musk that included what percent of its monetizable users were fake or spam accounts.
I have to admit it seems strange that Twitter wouldn't hand over data proving how much could be made off of their platform to a potential buyer—Unless maybe it was a crime. It's still illegal to market to children younger than 13 online.

Twitter doesn't plan to let Musk back out of the deal without a fight. They've published threats of a suit on and off of their platform.
“We are committed to closing the transaction on the price and terms agreed upon with Mr. Musk and plan to pursue legal action to enforce the merger agreement. We are confident we will prevail in the Delaware Court of Chancery,” the Twitter board said in a statement.
