AT&T gave $2M to Trump’s inaugural committee
AT&T was among the largest contributors to President Trump’s inaugural committee, accounting for more than $2 million of the record-breaking $106.7 million haul.
The telecom behemoth gave $2 million in cash contributions, as well as an $82,483 in-kind donation for “mobile equipment/software.”
Though the contribution exceeds those of AT&T’s rivals, it still falls short of the $3 million it gave for President Obama’s 2013 inauguration.
Verizon, Charter Communications and Comcast contributed a combined $600,000 to the Trump inaugural committee.
And tech companies that showed little support for Trump during the campaign also gave hundreds of thousands to the committee.
Google gave $285,000, and Microsoft made a $250,000 cash donation along with a $250,000 in-kind contribution in the form of equipment.
Another notable tech contribution came from Rob Parsons, the billionaire GoDaddy founder, who gave $1 million. Intel contributed $500,000 and e-commerce company Allied Wallet gave $1 million.
The largest contribution was a $5 million gift from casino magnate and heavyweight GOP donor Sheldon Adelson.
