1 (Xinhua) — Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Wednesday made a startling statement calling the U.S. government’s home quarantine restrictions imposed during the new coronapneumonia outbreak “fascist.” Tesla’s only assembly plant in the U.S. has been forced to shut down because of an outbreak in the San Francisco area. Musk said he did not know when Tesla would resume production in California, calling the state’s home quarantine order a “serious risk” to Tesla.
According tomedia reports, the Silicon Valley billionaire company had tweeted back in March that he did not approve of the restrictions at all, calling “the new corona virus panic stupid.” “
In recent days, he has sent several tweets expressing his displeasure with the U.S. outbreak blockade.
Several of his tweets on April 29th:
“Let Americans be free now!” “
“Give freedom back to people!” “
“Good Texas!” Musk retweeted a report that Texas restaurants, retailers and other businesses could reopen on Friday.
“Yes, be careful and reopen with appropriate protection, but don’t put everyone under de facto house arrest.” “
“Half of California’s hospitals were empty during this time. The server son of HHS (Department of Health and Human Services) in California has crashed, possibly with a new coronavirus. “
Several tweets from April 30:
“Why forced segregation is bad” was shared with a report on Americans waiting for “sensible decision makers who have the courage to ignore panic and rely on facts.”
“It’s a lie to attribute all death to the new crown, if not by the new crown. “
“It’s misleading to the public!” “
It’s not hard to see from these grumbling tweets that the shutdown of U.S. factories is going crazy for Musk.
