Elon Musk Demands Reopening: “Free America Now”

The Hill reports:

Tesla CEO Elon Musk is urging states across the country to put an end to lockdowns aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19.

In a series of tweets early Wednesday, Musk posted phrases like “FREE AMERICA NOW” and “Give people their freedom back” in response to the lockdowns, which have been in place throughout much of the country amid the pandemic.

The comments by Musk come more than a month after he dismissed concerns about the threat posed by the coronavirus pandemic, writing in a tweet in early March: “The coronavirus panic is dumb.” Since then, Tesla has announced pay cuts and furloughs.
