It's deeply disappointing to see Musk legitimatize the Sauds, who threatened Canada with a 9/11 style attack just 24 hours ago
Musk can do nothing to stop anyone from buying or shorting Tesla shares, that's regulated by the government.
So how is this true again?
>It's deeply disappointing to see Musk legitimatize the Sauds
Also, don't you know that the Saudis put $50 billion into Softbank's fund?
Anyone with a conscience would refuse Saudi funding, funneled via SoftBank or directly. Remember how HN and googlers were up in arms against accepting Pentagon money, this is a million times worse.
It is true that Musk is accepting a bailout from the Sauds, are you disputing that?
Hence, it's disappointing that he's ignoring, or somehow rationalizing all the blood shed by the Sauds
How did you reach that conclusion? He declined to sell them new shares, so the Saudis bought them on the open market. Tesla didn't get a dime. What bailout are you referring to?
If anything it looks like one of the reason to go private is specifically to prevent the Saudi fund from being able to increase their ownership by buying on the public market.
What do you mean? I may be missing something here, but I really don't understand this part.
Are you suggesting the Saudis are the one that will provide the 50B$ needed to go private?
