Elon Musk is behaving like an entitled baby - MSPoweruser

Tesla CEO Elon Musk escalated his quarantine battle with California officials on Monday by saying he would restart vehicle production at his company's northern California factory in spite of lockdown orders meant to stem the spread of the coronavirus.

Following Musk's statement, Alameda County's office of emergency services said Tesla was only allowed to maintain "minimum basic operations" until officials approve a plan and that it expected a proposal to be submitted by the company later in the day.

On Monday, the company's chief executive Elon Musk tweeted that production had restarted and he would be "on the line with everyone else".

"I agree with Elon Musk", Mnuchin told CNBC, referencing the Tesla co-founder and CEO's ongoing push to reopen its Bay Area factory. Tesla on Saturday filed suit against Alameda County, where its Fremont, California factory is located, seeking an injunction against orders it stay closed.

As Tesla increases its resistance against local operating restrictions in California, government leaders from two other states have proposed the company relocate to their respective jurisdictions.

Musk tweeted, "Tesla is restarting production today against Alameda County rules". This prompted Erica Pan, Alameda County's health officer, to fire a counter.

However, the "Mad Money" host, who has erred on the side of caution in commenting on the need to get Americans back to work and prevent further loss of life, said it's time to open Tesla's Fremont factory. According to one report, Tesla made around 200 Model Ys in recent days.

"I don't know that the county is reaching out with a level of confidence", Sanchez said.

When it comes to social media, even Kate Middleton and Prince William like to change things up sometimes. The snap was taken in 2018, and shared by the Cambridges as Christmas card on that same year.

California Governor Gavin Newsom has allowed "critical infrastructure" to continue during the state's shelter-in-place, which Tesla argues allows it to continue production of its cars.

He added: "Frankly, this is the final straw".

In turn, Adrian Fine, Mayor of Palo Alto (where Tesla's headquarters is located), also announced, "I would be really sad and disappointed if Tesla left the City of Palo Alto, and stand ready to help".

The local police department said that it was aware of the situation, but that it would act at the discretion of county health officials. He said Tesla is "up and running" and he feels like health guidelines aren't being followed.

"I think they should open", said Stephanie Moniz, a dental assistant who is out of a job.

Musk has been one of the crucial distinguished voices talking in opposition to coronavirus lockdowns, tweeting "FREE AMERICA NOW" in late April.

The lack of production in Fremont is a big financial strain on the company. On the issue of Tesla actually leaving Fremont, Wedbush's Dan Ives observes that the process could take 12 to 18 months and layer in more manufacturing and logistics risk.
