Musk threatens to move its headquarter from California amid restrictions

Elon Musk, the Chief Executive of Tesla, threatened on Saturday for the enclosure of the headquarter and factory of the company from California in a mounting dispute with local officials who pressurized the company from resuming the service of its electric vehicle factory. Musk also threatened on his official Twitter account to take legal action over COVID-19 restrictions from Alameda County Health Department that stopped the company from resuming production at its factory in Fremont south of San Francisco.

In another tweet, he says that frankly, it is the final straw, Tesla will now move its headquartered and future programs to Nevada/Texas instantly. Musk wrote that whether Tesla keeps any business in Fremont depends on how the company treated in the future. The CEO is angry about the stay at home order since the release of Tesla’s first-quarter earnings on 29th April. He called the restrictions racist and influencing the governments to stop taking the freedom of common people.
