Former President Donald Trump criticized Elon Musk after he signaled his intent to withdraw from purchasing Twitter, and now the Tesla CEO has responded to it.

Musk took to Twitter on Monday night to respond to Trump who called him a "bulls*** artist" at a rally in Anchorage, Alaska, reported Fox Business. The Tesla CEO tweeted that he thinks it's time for the former President to "hang up his hat and sail into the sunset." Musk said that he "does not hate" Trump, but he thinks that his days at the forefront of politics should be over.

He also suggested that Democrats were enabling the businessman-turned-politician's potential return to the White House as the U.S. President, which he said should also stop. He tweeted that Democrats should also call off the attack, "don’t make it so that Trump’s only way to survive is to regain the Presidency."

Following the tweets, a Twitter user asked Musk what issues he had with Trump's presidency. Musk replied saying that too much drama, and asked, "Do you really want a bull in a china shop situation every single day!?" He then suggested that 69 should be the "legal maximum age" to start a presidential term. Trump is 76 years old, and he would be 78 in 2024. President Joe Biden is 79 years old, and he would be 81 should he run for re-election in 2024.

Biden would not be able to defeat Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Musk made the 2024 prediction. The tech billionaire wrote that if DeSantis runs against Biden in 2024, then "DeSantis will easily win – he doesn’t even need to campaign." He previously said that he was leaning toward voting for the Florida Gov, but the conservative Republican has not told if he intends to run in 2024.

Musk's tweets came after Trump said that he is "not going to buy Twitter." Trump also encouraged his supporters to instead use his own social media platform, Truth Social. The former President said that Musk got himself in a mess, and that he has "looked at his contract." According to Trump, Musk said that he's never voted for a Republican, but "I didn’t know that because he told me that he voted for me, so he’s another bulls*** artist."

Meanwhile, Musk recently faced a legal challenge from Twitter after seeking to end an earlier deal that he struck to acquire the social networking site for $54.20 per share, reported CNBC. His basis for terminating the deal was “invalid and wrongful," said Twitter.
