Shocking turnout for Trump in ‘liberal San Francisco’ as attendees more than DOUBLE fundraising goal

A noticeable “enthusiasm gap” stunned in the Bay Area as Silicon Valley stepped up with a “tremendous turnout” toward the race for the White House.

“And if that’s in liberal San Francisco, what does that tell you about the rest of the country?”

Making inroads unseen in decades, San Francisco’s Golden Gate cracked open for former President Donald Trump Thursday when the GOP leader attended a fundraising event. Like recent events in New York and New Jersey, expectations were readily topped according to one of the hosts, Craft Ventures co-founder David Sacks.

The entrepreneur joined Fox Business host Larry Kudlow Friday on his eponymous program and explained where the bar had been set by him and co-host Chamath Palihapitiya, founder and CEO of Social Capital, and just how much support for the Republican had cleared it.

“When we agreed to do this event, we started off — the question was whether we could just raise $5 million, and that was the goal because as you well know, the Bay Area is sort of a liberal bastion. And so we thought that $5 million might be a big lift,” Sacks detailed on “Kudlow.”

Instead, the night ended reportedly raking in more than $12 million for Trump as a “tremendous turnout” of around 100 people showed up to contribute to the campaign. “We couldn’t fit one more seat in the place. We were completely sold out.”

Those who cracked open their checkbooks for the candidate weren’t alone in marking the “enthusiasm” in Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) own backyard as the president drew equally considerable support “outside the room.”

Sacks recounted to Kudlow that there had been some leftists who’d shown up to demonstrate their TDS, but that crowd was paltry in comparison to those in support of “The Outlaw” Donald Trump.

“Even with the protesters, there was a tremendous enthusiasm gap between the pro-Trump side and the pro-Biden side,” contended the entrepreneur. “And if that’s in liberal San Francisco, what does that tell you about the rest of the country?”

“Basically, we’ll rally everyone around together and show him the huge support that even in San Francisco, a very deep blue state, that we have a lot of support for the former president and we support what he stands for,” said supporter Jason Zang to NBC Bay Area.

Having specifically noted on Fox Business that GDP growth had dropped to around 1.3% under President Joe Biden and inflation had knocked consumer purchasing power down “by roughly 20%” in calculating the failure of the incumbent, Sacks’ broader endorsement of Trump was shared by the GOP leader on Truth Social where the economy, foreign policy, the border and lawfare were listed as top concerns.

He concluded, “The voters have experienced four years of President Trump and four years of President Biden. In tech, we call this an A/B test. With respect to economic policy, foreign policy, border policy, and legal fairness, Trump performed better. He is the President who deserves a second term.”
