Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk reportedly suggested implementing a carbon tax to President Trump — and it wasn’t received well.

Trump officials did not offer support for Musk’s suggestion, a senior White House official reportedly told Bloomberg.

Musk is a member of Trump’s Strategic and Policy Forum, a presidential advisory team.

{mosads}Musk isn’t the only Trump adviser to back a carbon tax. Trump’s secretary of State nominee, Rex Tillerson, advocated for the policy while he was CEO at Exxon Mobil Corp. The company also previously lobbied for a revenue-neutral carbon tax.

Earlier this week, Musk tweeted his support for the Tillerson’s State nomination.
