Peter Thiel is a wildly successful businessman. He co-founded PayPal and sits on the board of directors. He also is a vocal Donald Trump supporter and donated $1 million to the GOP nominee’s campaign.
Thiel hasn’t been silent since he gave a rousing speech the final night of the RNC. At the National Press Club, he spoke about why Americans are supporting Donald Trump. He took the left to task for disparaging half of the country simply for supporting Trump.
In the video below, you can hear Thiel discuss how as a gay man, he has become a target of the gay left because he isn’t supporting Hillary Clinton.
“Now, not everyone is hurting,” Thiel explained. “In the wealthy suburbs that are in Washington, DC, people are doing just fine. Where I work in Silicon Valley, people are doing just great. But most Americans don’t live by the beltway, or the San Francisco bay. Most Americans haven’t been part of that prosperity. It shouldn’t be surprising to see people vote for Bernie Sanders, or for Donald Trump, who is the only outsider left in the race.”
Reiterating his views that both candidates are imperfect, Thiel stated, “I don’t agree with everything Donald Trump has said and done, and I don’t think the millions of other people voting for him do either,” adding, “Nobody thinks his comments about women were acceptable. I agree, they were clearly offensive and inappropriate.”
“But I don’t think the voters pull a lever in order to endorse a candidate’s flaws,” he explained. “It’s not a lack of judgement that leads Americans to vote for Trump. We’re voting for Trump because we judge the leadership of our country to have failed.”
Watch his full fantastic speech below:
He’s completely right. You don’t have to endorse every single thing Trump says to support him. Trump represents the outsider that America needs right now. We are looking for results in an era when we have been used and abused by lifelong politicians like Hillary Clinton.
