The remarks were made by the billionaire as he answered questions via video link at the B20 conference in Indonesia, which is being held alongside the G20 meeting this week in Bali.
Musk spoke from a location he claimed had just lost power. Musk appeared to be lit up by candles.
He answered questions about the recent acquisition of Twitter, and his leadership role at Tesla. He said that he was working round-the-clock, adding, “I have too much work on my plate that is for sure.”
Indonesia is trying to reach a deal with Tesla regarding battery investments and possibly for SpaceX to build a rocket launch facility.
Musk did not make any commitments to either, but said that Indonesia had a significant role in the supply chain for electric vehicles and that SpaceX would benefit from having multiple launch sites around the world.
