Indian-American billionaire Vinod Khosla on May.11 voiced his support for President Joe Biden, posing a thought-provoking question to Donald Trump's supporters. He questioned whether they would aspire for their children to emulate the Republican presidential contender.

"The question I keep asking myself is would his supporters want their own kids to be like @realDonaldTrump and have #Trumpvalues? Do you want your kids to be like him? Republicans and Democrats can disagree on priorities but its Democrats, Republicans and #DONkeyRumpTrump hijack victims," Khosla wrote in a post on X. 

Khosla, who co-founded Sun Microsystems, shared his sentiments shortly after hosting a fundraiser for President Joe Biden at his Silicon Valley residence on May.10. The event, featuring tickets ranging from $6,600 to $100,000, raised a total of $1.5 million in support of Biden's campaign

The event marked the debut fundraiser hosted by an Indian-American during the 2024 election cycle and was attended by President Biden.

“After bragging about he’s [Trump] the reason why Roe v. Wade was overturned, he’s now worried voters are going to remember that and hold him accountable for the cruelty and chaos that has been created,” Biden said in his 16-minute-long speech. “Well, I’ve got news for Donald Trump: Voters are going to hold him accountable.”

During the fundraiser, President Biden shared several jokes aimed at former President Trump.

Referring to Trump’s recent remarks on abortion, Biden said, "Take a look at the front cover of this week’s TIME Magazine — the long interview with Trump. He said states should monitor women’s pregnancies, prosecute those who violate abortion bans. Monitor women’s pregnancies? But, look, the chaos is nothing new for Trump.  His presidency was chaos. Trump is trying to make the country forget how dark things — and unsettling they were as he left the office. But we’re not going to forget."

Biden also thanked Khosla and his wife for hosting him and said, "Vinod and Neeru, thank you. Thank you for that introduction and your whole family...Thank you for inviting us to your wonderful home because I came to see your dogs. As the press can tell you, I like dogs better than people sometimes."
