These aren't your run-of-the-mill batteries you buy on Amazon.

"The data clearly shows that for the first 50,000 miles (100,000 km), most Tesla battery packs will lose about 5% of their capacity, but after the 50,000-mile mark, the capacity levels off and it looks like it could be difficult to make a pack degrade by another 5%.

The trend line actually suggests that the average battery pack could go another 150,000 miles (200,000 miles total) before coming close to 90% capacity."

500 cycles? It's more than that, but honestly no one really knows. Tesla has the best batteries in operation currently and none of them are that old. Here is more direct data:

"You mean a large player, at over 2 trillion dollar economy, it'd be in the top ten. And that debt ratio would be extremely favorable compared to France, Japan, or Germany. Incredibly. I would take it in a heartbeat in their shoes."

Whats the economy $ again after all the incoming/outgoing US goods get shifted from CA to another border state? You did that math too right?

That threw a little monkey wrench in your figures didn't it?

Actually its quite the opposite. Trump supporters have always taken him seriously and not literally. There's a reason he got tens of thousands of people to attend his rally's. But Democrats never listened to him, and never will, and only go by strictly what he says as gospel. So yeah, will be interesting to watch.
