$FB Thiel Leaving the Board


Early Facebook investor Peter Thiel plans to resign from its parent company Meta’s board, the company announced on Monday.

Thiel’s departure is significant because he is a rare outspoken supporter of Donald Trump among Silicon Valley business leaders, and has been a key adviser to Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg on political issues.

Thiel is reportedly leaving to focus on supporting candidates running for office who align with the Trump agenda, according to the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.
