Musk tried to artificially inflate his stock price by tweeting out that he was thinking of taking the company public.

"The only tweets that would have to be reviewed would be if a tweet had a probability of causing a movement in the stock", he said.

Musk: I want to be clear, I do not respect the SEC.

Musk made a few other noteworthy comments on 60 Minutes, among them the widely reported statement that he doesn't "respect" the Securities and Exchange Commission.

(Barron's Avi Salzman made that point back in early November.) Musk also said it is "possible" that he might look to take on manufacturing capacity vacated by other vehicle makers as they pull back.

But Musk said "it's not realistic" to expect Denholm to watch over his actions because he remains the electric auto company's largest shareholder. In the end, he got to remain as CEO while stepping down as chairman for at least three years. "Yeah. It, it's not realistic in the sense that I am the largest shareholder in the company". Stahl rebutted, questioning just how Musk could be awarded judgment to decide which of his Tesla-related tweets are actually monitored.

"I want to be clear".

The erratic chief executive of Tesla has said that the company's new chairwoman will have no control over him as he remains the largest shareholder.
