Elon Musk is the richest man in the world. He is a well-known entrepreneur and business magnate who was born in South Africa. He founded a number of businesses, including Tesla Motors and SpaceX. As CEO of Tesla Inc., he was paid $595.3 million in 2019.
Elon Musk-run SpaceX created a unique world record by successfully launching 143 small satellites. The firm broke the record previously held by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), which launched 104 satellites in 2017.
Today, he is the richest man in the world with a potential wealth of $229.6 billion. Elon Musk is an internet sensation renowned for his luxury life. He made the headlines after he purchased a micro-blogging Twitter portal for a whopping $44 million.
Meanwhile, the world’s richest man took everyone by surprise by posting another tweet. “The far left hates everyone, themselves included!” he tweeted. The business magnate, however, followed up 16 minutes later, by saying, “But I’m no fan of the far-right either. Let’s have less hate and more love.”
Musk opened up on the politics as his buyout deal activated wild resistance from Twitter employees and left-leaning pundits, some of whom even promised to leave the portal altogether, highlighting fears the billionaire’s leadership will lead to more abusive or hateful content.
The Space X CEO later spoke about his initial post, observing that he was a prominent supporter of Democratic former President Barack Obama. “I strongly supported Obama for President, but today’s Democratic Party has been hijacked by extremists,” Musk added in a statement.
Musk also launched a scathing attack on far-left politics in recent days. Previously this month, he threatened Netflix’s recent subscriber losses on a “woke mind virus” that has made the platform “unwatchable.”
