From the Associated Press:
Billionaire Charles Koch, one of America’s most influential conservative donors, said he is fed up with the vitriol of the presidential race and will air national TV ads that call on citizens to work together to fix a “rigged” economy that leaves behind the poor.
Koch, in a telephone interview with the Associated Press, described Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton as part of personality politics at its worst. He said that’s why neither he nor the political and policy groups he controls are playing much of a role in the presidential election. Instead, in an unusual strategy, the ads will be paid for by his private company, Koch Industries.
“Both the primaries and the general (election) seems it’s more, ‘You’re the enemy, you’re evil, or you’re stupid,’ or whatever ad hominem attacks on each other,” Koch said, “rather than trying to find common ground so different opposing views can learn from each other and we can find better solutions.”
