Elon Musk asks on Twitter whether to sell Tesla shares

As it says Tanjug, American innovator Elon Musk surveyed his 62.5 million followers on Twitter with the question of whether he should sell 10 percent of his shares in the company Tesla, of which he is the founder and director.

“There has been a lot of talk lately about unrealized profits, which are a means of tax evasion, so I suggest selling 10 percent of my Tesla shares,” Musk wrote in a tweet, Reuters reports. He also stated that he would adhere to the results of the survey, whatever they may be.

Mask’s comments come after a proposal in the US Congress to tax the billionaire’s property in order to help pay for the social and climate program of President Joseph Biden.

Musk, one of the richest people in the world, has previously criticized the proposed tax for billionaires on Twitter.

“Keep in mind that I don’t take a cash salary or bonus anywhere. I only have shares, so the only way to pay taxes in person is to sell those shares,” Musk said on Twitter.

Musk recently responded to the comments of David Bizley, the director of the UN World Food Program, who repeated the appeal to the richest people in the world to use a part of their wealth and come to the rescue once and for all.

Beasley specifically mentioned Mask alongside Jeff Bezos, the founder of “Amazon”, and said that only two percent of his estimated wealth, which is six billion dollars, can prevent 42 million people from dying of hunger.

“If the World Food Program can explain to me exactly how the six billion dollars will solve the problem of world hunger, I will immediately sell my shares in ‘Tesla’,” Musk stated on Twitter.
