Amid the advertiser boycott of Facebook, one of the Democratic Party's biggest megadonors, Reid Hoffman, is exploring ways to launch a similar boycott of President Trump and his White House.

Hoffman, the billionaire founder of LinkedIn, could spend as much as $100 million this election cycle and has elbowed his way into becoming one of the most powerful players in Democratic politics. So what issues attract his attention — and, correspondingly, his money — matter because they can help explain where the progressive movement will focus over the summer.

Hoffman foreshadowed what may be his next political move this week when asked about the building protest movement against Facebook over its unwillingness to aggressively moderate Trump's inflammatory posts. Hoffman volunteered a revealing tidbit about his political thinking.
