Previously, there had been an unusual exchange between Musk and the head of the UN World Food Program WFP, David Beasley, on Twitter. In a CNN interview, Beasley asked for $ 6 billion from the super-rich to support 42 million starving people. Musk wrote on Twitter: “If WFP can detail on this Twitter thread how $ 6 billion (dollar exchange rate) can eliminate hunger in the world, I will immediately sell Tesla stock and do it.”
After that, Musk asked for details about the WFP budget and full transparency of where the money was going. Beasley replied, “Allow me to show you myself instead of tweets. We can meet anywhere – on earth or in space.” Musk didn’t react to that. According to UN spokesman Haq, a meeting between the two has not been scheduled either.
