Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, said Thursday that the record-high $30 trillion national debt is unsustainable.

Musk responded to a headline from the Babylon Bee that read "Biden Goes Double Or Nothing On National Debt By Placing $30 Trillion On The Bengals" by arguing that there is nothing comical about the debt growing under President Joe Biden.

"True national debt, including unfunded entitlements, is at least $60 trillion — roughly three times the size of the entire US economy," he tweeted


"People are saying we're going to give you free college, free cars, free cellphones, free this, free that," Sen. Rand Paul, a Kentucky Republican, said last year as the debt closed in on $30 trillion.

"Everything in life will be free. You won’t have to work anymore," he said. "The problem is there are ramifications. Money doesn’t grow on trees — money’s got to come from somewhere."
