“What I am going to say has nothing to do with Donald Trump and everything to do with the integrity of an election and the integrity of a self-governing democracy,” added the biotech billionaire. “So I don’t care if you support Trump or not, if you support the integrity of our constitutional republic, then you have to be on the side of being really clear.”
