"I am against import duties in general, but the current rules make things very difficult. It's like competing in an Olympic race wearing lead shoes."

"The Auto Executive said no American car company "is allowed to own 50% of their own factory" in the Asian country, but China's auto companies can own their factories in the US."

It only took 30 years for someone to say that China has been ripping America and the world off, for a generation and a half.
Oh, man—Musk done stepped in it now.
Well, what’s he gonna step in? He’s Elon Musk! He’s IT!
He wants to keep those subsidies coming.

Can Millenials ignore him?
Good man. Well done, Mr. Musk.
