Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz has announced his endorsement of Hillary Clinton’s candidature for president in the November elections along with a donation of $20 million to help Clinton beat Republican nominee Donald Trump.

“This decision was not easy, particularly because we have reservations about anyone using large amounts of money to influence elections,” Moskovitz and his wife, Cari Tuna, wrote in a post on Medium, which outlined the beneficiaries of what is reportedly the third largest donation in this election cycle.

Moskovitz, who has never been active politically, used the post titled “Compelled to Act” to justifiy the move by saying, “We hope these efforts make it a little more likely that Secretary Clinton is able to pursue the agenda she’s outlined, and serve as a signal to the Republican Party that by running this kind of campaign — one built on fear and hostility — and supporting this kind of candidate, they compel people to act in response.”

“If Donald Trump wins, the country will fall backward, and become more isolated from the global community,” he wrote.
