Why don't you sell your Tesla shares at $450 and reinvest in Temasek bonds, rather than US treasuries. Both are denominated in US dollar and both are risk free. Temasek bonds give better payout than Treasuries.

If MAS buy US treasuries and earn less, what if China sells US treasuries to MAS to “punish” US Govt and China buys Temasek bonds instead and get better returns!

Nothing against China though, it can be anyone, maybe Japan or Hong Kong or even Malaysia EPF will be interested in Temasek bonds.

Even Donald trump (ie US banks) will be happy to print some US dollar to buy Temasek bond and earn 2.5% interests for free, right?

I will sell my Tesla shares at $450, if it reaches this level. I will not invest in Temasek bonds. Instead, I will invest in China shares listed in Hong Kong. They show big discount to asset values and give a dividend yield more than 6%.
