President Donald Trump and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Tesla should be allowed to reopen, and the mayors of Palo Alto, where Tesla has its headquarters, and Fremont, which is home to its plant and roughly 11,000 employees, offered words of support. The company has a second US factory in Reno, where it builds batteries for its vehicles and employs about 6,500 people.

"Tesla will now move its headquarters and future programs to Texas/Nevada immediately", Musk tweeted.

Tesla may be heading south for its fifth Gigafactory, according to a TechCrunch report by Kirsten Korosec .
