Hillary Clinton put to rest any doubt that Silicon Valley leaders — including many with close media and entertainment ties — want her to become the next president.
Her campaign released this morning a list of supporters with A-list industry names including Netflix’s Reed Hastings, The Chernin Group’s Peter Chernin, Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg, IAC’s Barry Diller, BET chief Debra Lee, and Alphabet’s Eric Schmidt — as well as legendary investor Warren Buffett.
Presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump “would destroy much of what is great about America,” Hastings said in a statement. “Hillary Clinton is the strong leader we need, and it’s important that Trump lose by a landslide to reject what he stands for.”
