Trump Raised a Stunning $12 Million in One Night This Week at Silicon Valley Event

•, By Mike LaChance

This week, during a one night event in Silicon Valley, hosted by entrepreneur David Sacks, Trump raised another $12 million – in just one night.

The fact that people in blue Silicon Valley are stepping up to support Trump, post-NYC verdict, shows that the political narrative has shifted. No one could have imagined Trump getting this kind of support in such a blue area four years ago.

Breitbart News reported:

Trump Raises $12M at Silicon Valley Fundraiser Hosted by Venture Capitalist David Sacks

Former President Donald Trump raised $12 million at a Silicon Valley fundraiser in deep blue state California on Thursday, according to a member of the California Republican National Committee.

Harmeet Dhillon posted on X: "$12M raised tonight! Incredible support for @realDonaldTrump. Not an empty seat in the gorgeous home of @DavidSacks and Jacqueline. Thrilled to see the tech leaders stepping up!"

It was the first fundraiser since Trump's conviction last week, illustrating the former president's ability to raise funds and garner support despite Democrats' best efforts to label him a "convicted felon" and hurt his candidacy…

The fundraiser was co-hosted by Sacks and fellow venture capitalist Chamath Palihapitiya. The two co-host the popular "All-In" podcast.

According to the Times, the initial goal of the fundraiser was $5 million — an amount that was exceeded by more than double. About 25 were expected to attend a dinner as part of the fundraiser, with another approximately 50 slated to attend a bigger reception.
