The debate between Elon Musk and the prominent crypto-hating Senator Elizabeth Warren from Massachusetts as Warren insists on imposing a wealth tax and wants to begin with the world’s richest man, the Tesla CEO.

Sen Warren declares war on Musk, claims Tesla CEO’s scared of her

According to Johnna Crider, author at CleanTechnica and Evobsession, Senator Elizabeth Warren has been buying ads on Facebook, in which she slams Elon Musk “freeloading” his taxes off average working people. She also asks people to donate $10 to her campaign, claiming that Elon Musk is scared of her.

Musk has responded that Warren offers “a deeply messed up lie” to Americans and accused the Senator of freeloading off regular taxpayers herself. He added that this year he will be paying the largest tax of any individual in the US history. Earlier, Bloomberg reported that this year the Tesla CEO would have to pay over $10 billion as taxes so he has sold around the same percentage of his Tesla shares to cover that.

Besides, Musk seems to angry at Warren that he tweeted that the US Senate and the State of Massachusetts “deserve someone better”.

Senator Warren is strongly anti-crypto

Not only Warren is trying use Elon Musk in passing her initiative on a tax for the wealthy, she has been constantly speaking against crypto, calling it unreliable, devastating and dangerous.

She has recently also slammed stablecoins as supporting DeFi – the sphere that often involved scams, according to her, and does not offer any protection to consumers.
