Trump unique: Is a Republican Who Isn’t a ‘Zombie’

PayPal co-founder likes him because he’s real.

Peter Thiel is not ready to give up on defending President Donald Trump just yet.

The PayPal Holdings Inc. and Palantir Technologies Inc. co-founder praised Trump’s honesty, adding that unlike other Republican presidential hopefuls from the 2016 election, he isn’t a “zombie” and was the only candidate who addressed what Thiel considers politics’ biggest problem: political correctness.

“I got to meet a lot of people running for president on the U.S. Republican side in 2016 and they all felt like zombies,” he said during a Monday event on entrepreneurship in Sao Paulo, Brazil. “They couldn’t say anything different other than programmed ideological soundbites.”

Trump, Thiel said, is “a very healthy corrective to that.”

My thoughts precisely.
