There goes at least a few thousand jobs for the state of California. It’s so sad. Why would any CEO want to build a factory in California, given the current political climate in the state? Only the American people can put a stop to this madness. The American people must vote the party of destruction (the Democrats) out of office in the upcoming elections, and in future elections as well. There is simply no other choice! By the way, kudos to Elon Musk for taking legal action against Alameda County. #GOP2020!
Elon Musk says he plans to move Tesla out of California and sue county after coronavirus restrictions
By Washington Examiner, May 9, 2020
Tesla CEO Elon Musk said he was “immediately” filing a lawsuit against a California county that is not allowing his company’s headquarters to reopen because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Making the comments Saturday on Twitter, Musk tore into Alameda County’s interim public health officer, Dr. Erica Pan, and also said Tesla will move its operations in California to another state, calling the county’s coronavirus restrictions the “final straw.”
“Tesla is filing a lawsuit against Alameda County immediately. The unelected & ignorant ‘Interim Health Officer’ of Alameda is acting contrary to the Governor, the President, our Constitutional freedoms & just plain common sense!” Musk said.
“Frankly, this is the final straw. Tesla will now move its HQ and future programs to Texas/Nevada immediately. If we even retain Fremont manufacturing activity at all, it will be dependen on how Tesla is treated in the future. Tesla is the last carmaker left in CA,” the SpaceX founder added.

Tesla had planned to resume operations at the plant on Friday, but that same day, Pan said the auto company didn’t have “the green light” to open back up despite Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom allowing retail and manufacturing to return.
Musk has been an opponent of some of the lockdown measures imposed during the pandemic. Last month, he tweeted, “FREE AMERICA NOW,” and called for the reopening of state economies across the country. The entrepreneur has also said he doesn’t believe the mortality rates published by the World Health Organization.
