Twitter CEO Elon Musk clapped back at President Biden on Thursday, following a tweet boasting about the strides he made in his fight against climate change.

The post received the typical responses with users asking about student loan reduction, comparing the president’s statements to the reality of Bigfoot riding the Loch Ness monster, and some people praising the president for his accomplishments.

Over the past couple of weeks, eyes have been pinned on a potential banking crisis, the Fed’s interest rate hike, and stock market coaster.

As concerns continue to grow over bank stability, Biden’s approval reportedly sank to nearly its lowest point ever this month, at just 38%. Last month his rating was 45% and the drop comes amid the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank in recent weeks, compounding fears of a recession.

Musk responded to Biden’s boastful post about fighting climate change, tossing in his two cents.

"@POTUS umm…the banks are melting," Twitter’s commander in chief responded.
