Billionaire PayPal founder Peter Thiel: ‘What Trump represents isn’t crazy and it’s not going away’

Donald Trump’s America is the wave of the future, says Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel.

“No matter what happens in this election, what Trump represents isn’t crazy and it’s not going away,” Thiel said.

“No matter how crazy this election seems, it is less crazy than the condition of our country.”

Thiel — the openly gay co-founder of PayPal — made the remarks during an impassioned 2016 speech explaining why he supports Trump at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

While Trump’s movement and supporters have been widely dismissed by liberal mainstream media, Thiel said they are here to stay.

Thiel said the real estate mogul’s message pointing out that American exceptionalism is in danger is not a pessimistic whine, but a realistic call to action.

Baby Boomers are financially unprepared to retire and millennials are drowning in educational debt, Thiel said. These are harsh realities that need to be addressed by an upstart outsider like Trump who can bring true change to Washington.

Despite whitewashed government statistics claiming the economy is great, Thiel pointed out: “Most Americans are not part of that prosperity.”

Peter Thiel made headlines in July 2016, when he proudly proclaimed he was both gay and Republican at the RNC Convention.

Shockingly, Thiel was slammed by hypocritical liberals — the self-proclaimed champions of the LGBT community — simply because he’s Republican.

Thiel said Donald Trump is not a perfect person, but he is a man of vision who can bring real change.

Thiel said it’s time to vote out say-anything, do-nothing politicians and bring in a maverick outsider who can get the job done.

“It’s not a lack of judgment that leads Americans to vote for Trump,” Thiel said. “We’re voting for Trump because we judge the leadership of our country to have failed.”
