And somehow people are thinking he is a great inventor when he made his fortune with online banking, steals ideas from others, makes rockets and electric cars invented by others. He has never invented anything.

However, the billionaire in a tweet from 2019, had once debunked the claims that his father own an emerald mine.
Elon said he worked his way through college, ending up with $100k student loan. He also revealed in the tweet that he couldn’t afford a 2nd PC at Zip2 during that time.
