REPORT: Silicon Valley Pouring Millions of Dollars into Biden’s Campaign

Silicon Valley is pouring millions of dollars into Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s campaign, according to a recent report.

Employees at the six largest Silicon Valley tech firms have donated nearly $5 million to Biden’s campaign, while donating only $239,000 to President Trump, a Wired survey found.

Data from the Federal Election Commission shows that Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft and Oracle employees overwhelmingly favor Biden, with Alphabet (Google’s parent company) making up more than a third of the funds contributed by the six companies.

Microsoft is the next-biggest Biden donor, with $913,318 and only $75,428 for Trump. Oracle donated the least to Biden, with $204,208 and $50,114 for Trump.

Overall, Silicon Valley companies are donating to the two presidential candidates far more than they were during the 2016 presidential race.

Even though Trump is bringing in less money from the leftist firms, he’s raising nearly four times as much as he did in 2016.

Trump, however, has had a combative relationship with Silicon Valley, specifically with the Big Tech companies.

Just yesterday, he advocated for repealing Section 230, a legal provision that allows tech companies to regulate content however they see fit, after Twitter censored one of his tweets.

Trump, who is presumed to be recovering from the coronavirus at the moment, had tweeted a comparison between the virus and the common flu.

The social media giant then slapped the tweet with a label that says it “violated the Twitter Rules about spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19.”
