PETER THIEL BACKS TRUMP IN WASHINGTON, D.C., SPEECH
PayPal founder and Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel says he is backing Republican Donald Trump because he's the only person left in the race for the White House to admit that America is in decline. "I worry about the decline," Thiel said in a speech at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on Monday. "I take it very seriously." Thiel said he has a bias in favour of outsiders, noting that he supported Libertarian Ron Paul in 2012, and Carly Fiorina early in this campaign. He has thrown his support behind Trump, he said, because he's the only person left in the race who isn't a Washington insider removed from the way real people live.
