Twitter CEO and mega-billionaire technologist Elon Musk blasted former President Trump over the weekend over the latter’s suggestion that portions of the United States Constitution be repealed in reaction to the release of the first edition of “The Twitter Files” late last week.

Musk himself had been instrumental in releasing the internal Twitter documents which purport to show coordination between the Biden administration and Twitter employees when it came to censoring the New York Post’s explosive Hunter Biden story in 2020.

Trump said on his social media network, Truth Social, on Saturday that the Constitution should be repealed because of his bogus fraud charges.

“A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution. Our great ‘Founders’ did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!” Trump wrote on his social media platform “Truthsocial.”

Musk responded on Twitter, writing that “The Constitution is greater than any President. End of story.”

In addition to Musk’s criticism, Trump’s statement about the constitution was widely condemned by both Democrats and Republicans, who objected to both the statement’s tone and content.

Musk has previously expressed his belief that it is time for America and the Republican party to move on from Trump’s leadership.

Musk is also on record supporting Florida Governor Ron DeSantis over Trump, as the man who should be the next GOP nominee.

Trump announced his decision to once again run for President in the upcoming 2024 election one week after disappointing midterm election results for Republicans showed the party massively underperforming expectations. An event many political observers blamed, largely or entirely on Trump.
