Silicon Valley's pro-Trump VCs and founders once donated millions to Trump. They've gone quiet after last week's insurrection on Capitol Hill.
Sequoia's Doug Leone donated over $100,000 to Trump's 2020 election efforts and also donated to Josh Hawley's 2018 Senate campaign, public records show.
As other pro-Trump business people and tech CEOs condemn last week's Capitol Hill insurrection, Leone has remained quiet, alongside other, deep-pocketed Trump supporters in Silicon Valley.
The Capitol Hill riots have renewed calls from some VCs to stop doing business with Trump and his supporters.
Take Sequoia's Doug Leone, for example, a billionaire VC and managing partner of Sequoia, one of Silicon Valley's top firms.
The same for Peter Thiel, the billionaire Founders Fund partner who was once Trump's most vocal supporter in Silicon Valley.
