Entrepreneur and Tech-Investor David Sacks appeared on “Bloomberg Technology” to be interviewed by Emily Chang where he was asked to comment about the fundraiser that he is hosting for Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis on October 22.
Chang referred to Governor DeSantis as “a very divisive figure”
“I do want to ask you about the fundraiser you’re hosting for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who, obviously, is a very divisive figure, has made some choices that are questionable about public health — I know you don’t necessarily agree with all of them — but why do you support such a divisive candidate, especially given the global health crisis we are still facing?,” Chang asked.
To which Sacks responded with, “Why is he inherently more divisive than, say, Gavin Newsom or someone on the other side of the spectrum?”
“I would argue that the country — there’s a multiplicity of views, and you’re not divisive just because you don’t agree with the orthodoxy of Silicon Valley.” he added.
After being pressed on the issue, Sacks shared his stances and praised Governor Ron DeSantis “In terms of why I like DeSantis, he was the first governor to stop these insane lockdowns, and he found the right policy on lockdowns, which was to stop them, and he did it despite an extremely hostile media. And I respect that,” he said. “When someone takes the right position on an issue despite the hostility of the media, that’s something I really respect.” He added.
