Dustin Moskovitz A co-founder of Facebook donating $20 million to help ensure the defeat of Republican candidate Donald Trump in the upcoming presidential elections. He and his wife Cari made the decision to pour in millions because he thinks that ‘if Donald Trump wins, the country will fall backward, and become more isolated from the global community’.
Moskovitz in a blog post titled ‘Compelled to Act’ wrote, “Polarisation in America today has yielded a race that is about much more than policies and ideas.” He said that Trump is running on a zero-sum vision, stressing a false contest between their constituency and the rest of the world.
Commenting on Trump’s signature plan to build a wall on the US-Mexico border, the internet entrepreneur said that Republic party’s position on immigration, which purports to improve the lives of Americans, would in practice hurt citizens and non-citizens alike.
The donations made by Moskovitz will go to various political action committees including the Hillary Victory Fund, Democratic congressional groups, the League of Conservation Voters, Colour Of Change and several nonpartisan voter registration efforts
