Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s fortune rose again above the $300.8 billion level, the second time it has crossed that level, which no one has previously touched.

Musk broke the $300 billion barrier for the first time 3 weeks ago, after the giant car rental company Hertz announced a huge demand for Tesla cars, which led to the company’s market value rising to more than $1 trillion.

But as usual, Musk’s tweets – and actions – stymied the rise of his fortune. Tesla’s stock was a huge hit two weeks after Hertz’s order, until Musk asked his millions of Twitter followers if he should sell 10% of his estimated 23% stake in Tesla, which also came on the heels of a short-term tax proposal on earnings.

The Tesla CEO sold nearly $9 billion in stock, with about $3 billion of the amount set aside to cover a tax bill on stock options he was exercising at the same time.

Although his cash pile grew as a result of the sales, Musk’s net worth fell by more than $50 billion before it topped $300 billion on Monday.

Musk has also taken to Twitter in recent weeks to circumvent progressive politicians, such as billionaire critic Senator Ron Wyden, who responded to the poll in a tweet, writing: “Whether the world’s richest man polls his followers or not, shouldn’t the richest person in the world pay Taxes. It’s time to tax billionaires’ income.”

Musk’s response came blunt, after a second tweet, in which he wrote: “We must demand that the super-rich pay their fair share of taxes.” “You forgot you’re still alive,” wrote Musk’s response, “Do you want me to sell more shares, Bernie? Just say the word…”.
