Elon Musk shares his thoughts on Bill Gates. They're not pleasant

The world's fourth-richest person is trash-talking the second-richest person.

After Microsoft (MSFT) co-founder Bill Gates cast doubt on the viability of electric trucks, Tesla (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk said this weekend he thinks Gates 'has no clue. ' Musk responded to a tweet Saturday on how he felt about Gates' declaration on electric vehicles.

Gates detailed his thoughts on electric vehicles in a blog post in August, explaining why he was dubious about the potential for EVs as long-haul vehicles.

"Even with big breakthroughs in battery technology, electric vehicles will probably never be a practical solution for things like 18-wheelers, cargo ships, and passenger jets," Gate wrote in a blog post.

"Electricity works when you need to cover short distances, but we need a different solution for heavy, long-haul vehicles. "

But he gave credit to legacy automakers GM and Ford and new carmarkers Rivian and Bollinger for their advancements in producing all-electric pick-up trucks.

Last year, Tesla revealed its new electric pickup, the Cybertruck and a more expensive version of the truck, the Tri Motor All-Wheel-Drive.

In February, the electric car company CEO said in a tweet he found conversations with him "underwhelming. " The diss came after Gates mentioned in an interview he purchased an electric Porsche Taycan and not a Tesla.
