Donald Trump accused Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO and founder, of being a criminal in a harsh statement criticizing his $400 million donation to local election offices for the November 2020 race. 

The charges against Nebraska Republican Rep. Jeff Fortenberry for illegal campaign contributions were causing fury among the former president. Fortenberry called it a double standard in how other people are treated, such as the tech billionaire.

Trump stated that Mark Zuckerberg, a criminal in my opinion, was allowed to spend $500million and thus able to alter the course of a Presidential Election. 

The rest of his emailed statement was spent listing past and current rivals that he claimed also ‘hurt the United States’. 

‘Comey, Schiff, Crooked Hillary, McCabe, and the two lovers, Peter, and Lisa, lied. They all lied having to do with Russia, Russia, Russia, because they knew it was a SCAM, and they all lied having to do with Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine, because they knew it was a SCAM—and they made up fairy tales about me knowing how badly it would hurt the U.S.A.—and nothing happens to them. Is there no justice for our Country? Trump concluded. 

Zuckerberg, 37 and Priscilla, 36, donated $419.5million to The Center for Technology and Civic Life and The Center for Election Innovation and Research. The donations were reportedly made with specific conditions.

According to the Federalist report, CTCL and CEIR used the donations to send funds to local governments to implement administrative procedures, voting methods, and outreach programs for 2020 elections.

Analysis shows that Biden-winning states were three times as likely to be granted funding by the organizations than Trump’s.

According to the Associated Press, the cash was also used for pandemic protection equipment such as gloves and masks, as well equipment to process ballots.

There is no evidence Zuckerberg committed any wrongdoing or that his donation was in violation of campaign or other laws.

Nearly 2,500 jurisdictions in 49 states applied for and were granted funds, including exurban, suburban, and rural counties. More Republican than Democratic jurisdictions applied and were granted the funds, they stated.

Trump sent his initial statement to the world early last week. He also referred to Zuckerberg as Bill O’Reilly during an interview on The First TV. 

Trump said to O’Reilly, “What he did, in our opinion, was illegal.”

According to O’Reilly, “He’s going get away with it,” O’Reilly said according to the New York Post.

Trump responded: “Well, you don’t know if it’s going to get away.” Okay.

He’s not the first Republican to scream at Zuckerberg over the multimillion-dollar donation. 

North Carolina Rep. Dan Bishop charged the tech billionaire with putting his thumb on the scale to give Democrats an advantage in last year’s elections.

Bishop stated that Mark Zuckerberg believed our elections were not for sale. He did everything he could in order to put a thumb on it for Democrats in 2020.

‘It’s clear that no one meddled more in the last election than Zuckerberg and the Big Tech elites.’

Rand Paul, a Kentucky Senator, has criticized Zuckerberg’s attempt to ‘purchase Wisconsin,’ a critical battleground state that was apparently targeted by one the Zuckerberg-funded organizations for Biden.

“Are our elections up for sale?” Was Mark Zuckerberg able to purchase the Wisconsin Presidential Election? Paul asked.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was critical of Zuckerberg at a news conference. He referred to new election laws he just signed as a ban against ‘Zuckerbucks in Florida.

DeSantis stated that Zuckerberg spent more than $400 million through these nonprofits to, quote. help with election administration.

“But they would require certain things like mass mail balloting, harvesting ballots, and they would concentrate on partisan voter turnout. This was completely unacceptable.

Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin stated: “I continue to question if Mark Zuckerberg’s highly political 2020 election spending was even legal.”
