Trump backer Robert Murray claimed Tesla had received $2bn from taxpayer

Tesla founder Elon Musk has hit back against the CEO of a coal power company who accused him of fraud.

Robert Murray, an outspoken Donald Trump supporter and the CEO of the Murray Energy Corporation – America’s largest coalmining company – went after Musk onCNBC’s Squawk Box on Monday and called Tesla “a fraud”.

“[Musk]’s gotten $2bn from the taxpayer, has not made a penny yet in cashflow,” Murray continued. “Here again: it’s subsidies.”

In response, Musk tweeted that the real fraud going on was “denial of climate science”.

“As for ‘subsidies’, Tesla gets pennies on dollar vs coal. How about we both go to zero?” he said …. https://www.theguardian.com
