Elon Musk continues to reject taxes for the rich and will not donate his money unless he is shown that he can solve world hunger.
Elon Musk , the richest man in the world, has indicated that he will only donate his money if the United Nations ( UN ) can prove that it can solve world hunger with it.
Musk responded to the statement of David Beasley, director of the UN World Food Program , who noted that the wealth of billionaires can help eradicate famine in the world.
According to Beasley, $ 6 billion can prevent 42 million people from dying from this.
If the World Food Program, using transparent and open accounting, “can describe in this Twitter thread exactly how 6 billion will solve world hunger, I will sell Tesla stock right now and do it,” Musk noted .
If WFP can describe on this Twitter thread exactly how $6B will solve world hunger, I will sell Tesla stock right now and do it.

Musk has rarely sold Tesla shares, which are worth a record higher than $ 1,100.
