Whoa! Facebook cofounder Dustin Moskovitz has generously given $20 million to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. In his opinion, if ‘dangerous’ Donald Trump wins the election, the ‘country will fall backward’! Check out the billionaire’s fiery message right here.
Hillary Clinton, 69, has a friend in Dustin Moskovitz, 32. The Facebook cofounder gave $20 million to her campaign — which is nothing to sneeze at — and explained that it’s so she can defeat Donald Trump, 70, in an essay on Sept. 9.
Here’s an excerpt, via Medium, from the young billionaire’s explosive address against Trump:
“[Wife] Cari and I have dedicated our lives to figuring out how to do the most good we can with the resources we’ve been given. Until now, those efforts have not included making endorsements or contributions in presidential elections. Though we’ve voted for the Democratic nominee each of the times we’ve cast a ballot, we’ve considered ourselves independent thinkers who respect candidates and positions from both sides of the aisle. When we envision a well-functioning democracy, we see two strong parties that challenge each other’s thinking in their mutual passion for the greater good.
The Republican Party, and Donald Trump in particular, is running on a zero-sum vision, stressing a false contest between their constituency and the rest of the world. We believe their positions, especially on immigration, which purport to improve the lives of Americans, would in practice hurt citizens and noncitizens alike. In contrast, the Democratic Party, and Hillary Clinton in particular, is running on a vision of optimism, pragmatism, inclusiveness and mutual benefit.
If Donald Trump wins, the country will fall backward, and become more isolated from the global community…His proposals are so implausible that the nation is forced to worry that his interest in the presidency might not even extend beyond winning a contest and promoting his personal brand.
We may be criticized by some for taking this action and there will be theories projected onto our reasons — but those who know us best will see the sincerity of our intentions, and can attest that the thoughts above represent the full scope of our motivations. We offer them humbly, and with the deepest love for America, and for the world.
Moskovitz has a net worth of more than $10 billion, and this donation is historically large — the act makes him the third most generous donor in the 2016 campaign. He hasn’t been involved in politics prior to this move, but Trump has that effect on people.
