Biden backstabbed by major Democrat fundraiser, and people are shocked

Joe Biden and the Radical Left are doing everything they can to get ahead of Donald Trump in fundraising. But not everything is going well.

And Biden has been backstabbed by a major Democrat fundraiser, and people are shocked.

In a surprising turn of events, tech adviser Jacob Helberg, previously a significant donor to Democrat campaigns, has shifted his support towards former President Donald Trump for the 2024 election.

Helberg, who has been a notable figure in Silicon Valley, recently contributed a substantial $1 million to Trump’s re-election campaign, positioning himself as one of Trump’s largest financial backers.

Helberg’s donation marks a significant departure from his previous political affiliations.

Four years ago, he was a key financial supporter of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s presidential campaign.

However, disillusioned with the current administration, Helberg has joined a growing number of high-powered Silicon Valley executives who are now aligning with Trump.

“The social cost of supporting Trump isn’t as great as it was,” Helberg stated, highlighting a shift in perspective within Silicon Valley. Many now recognize that “Trump was right on a lot of make-or-break issues for America.”

Following a report by The Washington Post on his substantial contribution to Trump’s campaign, Helberg took to social media to express his motivations.

“This one’s for Israel,” he posted on X, emphasizing his support for Trump’s strong stance on issues concerning the Jewish state.

Helberg has donated $844,600 to the Trump 47 joint fundraising committee, joining a select group of donors who have maxed out their contributions to the group.

According to Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings reviewed by The Post, at least 20 other donors had reached the contribution limit to the Trump committee by March.

The alignment between Helberg and Trump is largely driven by their shared views on China.

At a recent meeting at Trump’s Florida resort, Mar-a-Lago, both men bonded over the necessity of taking a hardline approach to China, particularly concerning trade, TikTok, and other critical issues.

Helberg’s pivot towards Trump reflects a broader trend among Democratic supporters who have become increasingly disenchanted with President Joe Biden’s tenure.

Many of these former supporters are reassessing Trump’s policies and finding them more aligned with their current priorities.

David Friedman, Trump’s former ambassador to Israel, has observed a notable shift among Jewish donors who were previously skeptical of Trump.

With Biden’s administration showing a perceived tilt away from Israel, these donors are reconsidering their support. Friedman explained, “There is clearly a change going on. People who were never Trumpers or reluctant ‘hold your nose Trumpers’ are telling me that Trump has to win.”

This sentiment was echoed by Democratic mega-donor Haim Saban.

In an email to two Biden aides, Saban criticized the president for his stance towards Israel, especially amidst its ongoing conflict with Hamas. Saban expressed his concerns over Biden’s decision to withhold munitions from Israel, suggesting that it sends a negative message to America’s allies.

“Even beyond Israel, this sends a terrible message to our allies in the region, and beyond, that we can flip from doing the right thing to bending to political pressure,” Saban wrote.

He also highlighted the political implications within the U.S., stating, “Let’s not forget that there are more Jewish voters who care about Israel than [Muslim] voters who care about Hamas.”

Saban’s remarks underline the growing dissatisfaction among many Democratic donors with Biden’s foreign policy, particularly concerning Israel.

This dissatisfaction is driving a reassessment among donors who are now considering Trump as a viable alternative for 2024.
