Trump Critics Fume Over “Oracle” Tech Titan Hosting Trump Fundraiser

Larry Ellison, founder of tech giant “Oracle” and one of the world’s richest men, will host a California fundraiser for President Trump.

Vox reports Larry Ellison, the founder of Oracle and one of the world’s richest men, is throwing a fundraiser for Donald Trump — the most significant display of support from a major tech titan for the president, by far.

Ellison is hosting Trump at his estate in California’s Coachella Valley next week for a “Golf Outing and Reception,” according to a copy of the invitation obtained by the Desert Sun, a local newspaper. Tickets run as high as a quarter million dollars.

While Ellison has consistently backed Republicans in the past — he was a major donor to a super PAC backing Marco Rubio in 2016 — the fundraiser is sure to expose the flamboyant 75-year-old billionaire to a new wave of political and corporate scrutiny.

Silicon Valley workforces are, in general, deeply oppositional to the Trump administration, and it will be revealing to see whether Ellison encounters any pushback or activism from Oracle’s 136,000 employees, who have already expressed frustration with even fewer ties from Oracle to the current administration.

Trump critics took to social media to attack Larry Ellison over the development.

Justin Hendrix wrote: Disgusting, @Oracle @larryellison. You are in service to bigotry and despotism

Howard Dean wrote: For those who know Larry Ellison ( I don’t) this is not a surprise

Judd Apatow wrote: Imagine having billions of dollar and just not caring if the world burns. What more do they need? They spend all their time investing in life extension research because it would be so awful to die when you have so much cash. No amount of money is enough. There is no sacrifice.
