Facebook Co-Founder Pledges $20M to Defeat Trump

Facebook’s co-founder, Dustin Moskovitz, announced that he would pledge $20 million to various political organizations in the fight against Donald Trump.

The Hill reports:

In a Thursday evening post on Medium, Moskovitz said he and his wife, Cari Tuna, are will be donating the money to super-PACs and Democratic committees dedicated to electing Hillary Clinton.

“Like many Democratic voters, we don’t support every plank of the platform, but it is clear that if Secretary Clinton wins the election, America will advance much further toward the world we hope to see,” Moskovitz wrote.

He added: “If Donald Trump wins, the country will fall backward, and become more isolated from the global community.”

Prominent Silicon Valley voices have largely backed Hillary Clinton over Trump, though the large, wholly personal donation from Moskovitz risks inflaming accusations of liberal bias against Facebook.

In May, the world’s leading social media network changed its handling of trending topics after reports earlier guidelines may have favored news stories from mainstream outlets.
