Musk Vows To Sell $6 Billion In Tesla Stock ‘Right Now’ If UN Can Prove That The Money Would End World Hunger

In a heated Twitter exchange, Musk is firing back against CNN and UN officials that suggested his huge wealth could be better spent.

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, and the richest man in history offered to sell $6 billion in Tesla stock if the UN could show how his donation could end world hunger.

The spat began after social media users shared a CNN story that said 2% of Musk’s wealth could end world hunger. The story cited the UN’s World Food Program director.

This prompted Musk to respond directly, challenging the UN and the World Food Program.

“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,” he said.

CNN Interview 

Last week, CNN interviewed David Beasley, a director of the United Nations World Food Program (WFP).

In the interview, the WFT director stated that billionaires need to “step up now, on a one-time basis” to save millions of people that are being impacted by global hunger and the pandemic.

“$6 billion to help 42 million people that are literally going to die if we don’t reach them. It’s not complicated,” he added.

WEF Responds To Musk, Musk Fires Back

WEF director David Beasley responded to Musk’s tweets. He said that $6 billion will not end world hunger, but will save 42 million people on the brink of starvation.

“Headline not accurate. $6B will not solve world hunger, but it WILL prevent geopolitical instability, mass migration and save 42 million people on the brink of starvation. An unprecedented crisis and a perfect storm due to Covid/conflict/climate crises” the WFT director tweeted.

Musk added that he expects full transparency with regard to the spending of his potential $6 billion donation.

“I can assure you that we have the systems in place for transparency and open source accounting. Your team can review and work with us to be totally confident of such.”

Musk pushed back further against the UN. He linked to an article on the alleged sexual abuse of children by UN officials, asking “what happened here.”

WFT director David Beasley did not respond to that tweet.
