Facebook Co-Founder Spending $20 Million in Hopes of Defeating Trump

Makes him the second-largest Democratic contributor this election cycle.

Dustin Moskovitz is a co-founder with Mark Zuckerberg of the social media giant Facebook. He can now boast that he is the second-largest Democratic contributor of this election season with his recent gift of $20 million in hopes of stopping Donald Trump from becoming president.

According to the Associated Press, Moskovitz and his wife, Cari Tuna, are spreading their donation across several organizations: the League of Conservation Voters and the For Our Future political action committee. In addition, the couple has pledged stacks of cash directly to Hillary Clinton’s campaign and to committees helping Senate and congressional Democrats win seats around the country.

Moskovitz believes Clinton and the Democrats are “running on a vision of optimism, pragmatism, inclusiveness and mutual benefit.”

As for the Republicans and Trump, the social media billionaire described them as divisive and dangerous. More specifically, Moskovitz said Trump supporters have been deceived by “quite possibly a deliberate con.”

That confirms Moskovitz only reads Facebook's trending -- that is, selective -- newsfeed.

The Freedom Center is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Therefore we do not endorse political candidates either in primary or general elections. However, as defenders of America’s social contract, we insist that the rules laid down by both parties at the outset of campaigns be respected, and that the results be decided by free elections. We will oppose any attempt to rig the system and deny voters of either party their constitutional right to elect candidates of their choice.
