Oculus co-founder Palmer Luckey donated $100000 to Trump's inauguration
According to financial documents reviewed by Mother Jones, Luckey donated $100,000 to President Trump's inauguration through a shell company, Wings of Time, LLC. The inauguration committee filings list an office tower in Los Angeles as the address for Wings of Time, but there is no individual's name associated with the organization. News of the donation broke today, nearly a month after Luckey announced he was leaving Facebook, but the money was handed over on January 4th - when he was presumably still under contract with the social media company. Speaking in September, Luckey said he had given $10,000 to the Nimble America association because it had "fresh ideas on how to communicate with young voters through the use of several billboards". And that split came after a report detailed Luckey's work with a group of trolls called Nimble America who promised to bring online "shitposting" into the real-world USA presidential campaign through billboards.
Luckey's $100,000 donation was hardly the largest to Trump's inauguration committee.
He publicly apologized for the donation, saying that he was "deeply sorry that my actions are negatively impacting the perception of Oculus and its partners".
Here's probably the first time someone had to write "Chrono Trigger" and "Donald Trump" in the same sentence. "I am a libertarian who has publicly supported Ron Paul and Gary Johnson in the past, and I plan on voting for Gary in this election as well", he said. Last month, it was announced that he had parted ways with Oculus and Facebook.
Facebook reportedly purchased Luckey's business, Oculus VR, for $3 billion in March 2014, helping to make him the 22nd richest person in America under the age of 40.
