Facebook Co-Founder Pledges $20M to Help Beat Donald Trump


‘American’ Dustin Moskovitz

THE FORWARD – Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz is doing his part to ensure Donald Trump never enters the Oval Office. The 32-year-old entrepreneur pledged $20 million to a number of democratic organizations, including the Hillary Victory Fund, the League of Conservation Voters and For Our Future PAC. Once donated, Moskovitz will become the third highest donor in the campaign cycle.

In a letter penned on Medium last night, Moskovitz noted that this is the first time he and his wife, Cari Tuna, have ever endorsed a candidate.

“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,” he wrote. “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.”

This election cycle, he explained, threw all that out the window. Moskovitz expressed his belief that the country would only move backwards should Trump win the nomination. His letter points to Trump’s stringent take on immigration and, possibly, a larger desire to “win a contest and promot[e] his personal brand.”

Moskovitz—who is worth a reported $10 billion—admitted that he may face backlash from the donation. But he’s not too worried.

“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,” he concluded. “We offer them humbly, and with the deepest love for America, and for the world.”
