    Elon Musk challenged Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) this week to poll her followers on Twitter to see who they trusted less, billionaires or politicians.

    Musk polled his nearly 100 million Twitter followers on Thursday, asking them, "Who do you trust less? Real question."

    More than 3 million people responded to the poll, with approximately 75% saying that they trusted politicians less.

    "AOC I dare you to run the same poll with your followers," Musk later added.

    Musk's challenge to Ocasio-Cortez comes after she attacked billionaires late last month after Musk purchased Twitter for $44 billion.

    Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, "Tired of having to collectively stress about what explosion of hate crimes is happening bc some billionaire with an ego problem unilaterally controls a massive communication platform and skews it because Tucker Carlson or Peter Thiel took him to dinner and made him feel special."

    AOC's rant against billionaires continued on Twitter with her writing: "Billionaires be like 'the extreme far left is taking over' when the 'extreme far left' in the US is 'medicine shouldn't bankrupt you,' 'wages should cover rent,' & 'maybe it's bad that Wall St companies profit off mass surveillance, manufactured housing crises, and caging people.'"

    "The number of billionaires in the US couldn't even fill an apartment building, but the number of people they negatively impact is only growing," she added. "All the US billionaire votes combined couldn't even come in 2nd for an NY city council election. That's why they stay pressed."

    Musk mocked Ocasio-Cortez in response, writing, "Stop hitting on me, I'm really shy."

    Musk's response is a reference to a news story from late last year where Ocasio-Cortez lashed out at critics online after she was caught hanging out in Florida without a mask on.

    National Review reported that, according to photographs obtained by the publication, Ocasio-Cortez was "seated outside Doraku Sushi and Izakaya in Miami Beach Thursday afternoon, raising a cocktail in one hand and checking her phone in another."

    "If Republicans are mad they can't date me they can just say that instead of projecting their sexual frustrations onto my boyfriend's feet," Ocasio-Cortez responded to one of the critics calling her out. "Ya creepy weirdos."

    Musk's challenge to AOC this week comes after AOC said that she would "love to switch" her Tesla for something else after Musk teased her on Twitter. Musk is the CEO and co-founder of Tesla.

    "At the time, it was the only EV that could get me from New York to Washington on like one, or one-and-a-half charges," Ocasio-Cortez told Bloomberg News. "I would love to switch."
