Facebook commits $20 million to Help Clinton Win the Election
Washington DC: Dustin Moskovitz, co-founder of Facebook, announced early Friday that he is donating $20 million to the Democratic Party to help its nominee win the presidential election.
Moskovitz has written an article in the Medium, in which he stated that he and his wife Cary had always dedicated their lives to do the most good they could.
This will make Moskovitz the third largest donor in the 2016 campaign, once the donation is made.
“This decision was not easy, particularly because we have reservations about anyone using large amounts of money to influence elections,” Moskovitz wrote.
The donation will go to many organizations that include, The Hillary Victory Fund, For Our Future PAC, among others.
Explaining his decision Moskovitz wrote that 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,” he stated.
In contrast, the Democratic Party, and Hillary Clinton in particular, are running on a vision of optimism, pragmatism, inclusiveness and mutual benefit, he wrote.
