Not a single Fortune 100 CEO has contributed to Donald Trump‘s campaign for president, according to the Wall Street Journal. That’s unusual for a GOP candidate — Mitt Romney saw far greater support from the same group four years ago. But among Silicon Valley‘s head honchos many aren’t just failing to support Trump: they are denouncing Trump’s candidacy in ways rarely seen in the past.
Netflix CEO Reed Hastings doubled down on his criticism of the GOP candidate this week while speaking at The New Yorker TechFest. Hastings told listeners that it’s not just bad for the American economy if Trump wins, it’s “so bad for America” in general. Hastings called the economic effect of a Trump victory “secondary.” In June Hastings was part of a long list of boldface tech execs who endorsed Clinton strongly. Hastings said it’s “important Trump lose by a landslide” to prove Americans repudiate his views.
