The world’s richest man, Elon Musk, has lost -4.27 percent of his wealth after the Chief Executive Officer of Tesla denied a report that he planned to build a private airport in the United States.

He said: “Not true. Tesla is 5 minutes from Austin International Airport. It would be silly to build another private airport. However, the existing commercial airport needs another runway, as Austin is growing fast!”
