According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Elon Musk is second richest man on the planet after Amazon’s Jeff Bezos.
Elon Musk was replying to an article defending Musk’s wealth accumulation which quotes United States Senator Bernie Sanders.
Bernie on Thursday tweeted, “We are in a moment in American history where two guys — Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos — own more wealth than the bottom 40% of people in this country. That level of greed and inequality is not only immoral. It is unsustainable.”
Responding to the disapproval of his wealth, Musk shared his vision for the humanity. “I am accumulating resources to help make life multiplanetary & extend the light of consciousness to the stars,” Musk said.
