Elon Musk Moves Tesla Out Of California Over Extended Shutdowns, Dems Are Furious

OPINION | This article contains commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced over Twitter that he is uprooting his company from California and will be moving to a state that will treat his business better.

In a pair of tweets, Musk cited the California government’s decision to extend the coronavirus-related lockdowns and said he would be “filing a lawsuit… immediately.”

His comments came in response to Investment Advisor Founder and CEO Ross Gerber who said the Alameda county’s decision should be challenged in the courts.

Musk responded: “The unelected & ignorant ‘Interim Health Officer’ of Alameda is acting contrary to the Governor, the President, our Constitutional freedoms & just plain common sense!”

“Frankly, this is the final straw. Tesla will now move its HQ and future programs to Texas/Nevada immediately. If we even retain Fremont manufacturing activity at all, it will be dependen on how Tesla is treated in the future,” he added.

And: “Tesla is the last carmaker left in CA.”

Musk responded to another comment that said Telsa has a track record of helping its area deal with preventing the spread of the coronavirus:

Liberals in the state were not happy with the decision.

California Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez tweeted, “F*ck Elon Musk”:

Conservatives, in contrast, are excited for Musk to move Tesla.

Texas politicians, including Governor Greg Abbott, responded to the announcement.

Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson tweeted: “Southern Dallas would be a wonderful location for Tesla. Let’s make it happen.”

Here’s how some other conservatives on Twitter responded:
