Valerie Plame Wilson’s on a mission to get President Trump off Twitter. How? By buying it, of course.
Valerie Plame Wilson, a former CIA operations officer, has launched a campaign to raise money to buy a controlling interest in Twitter so she can shut down President Trump’s account on the social media site.
“Twitter is a publicly traded company. Shares [equal] power,” her page on the crowdfunding website “GoFundMe” reads. “This GoFundMe will fund the purchase of a controlling interest in Twitter.”
According to the former CIA officer, it would cost more than $1 billion to purchase a controlling share of the social media giant.
“But that’s a small price to pay to take away Trump’s most powerful megaphone and prevent a horrific nuclear war,” the page reads.
If she’s unable to raise the $1 billion needed to buy a controlling interest in the company, Wilson said she will purchase a “significant stake” that would allow her to push for the deletion of Trump’s account at Twitter’s annual shareholder meeting.
Any leftover proceeds, the “GoFundMe” page reads, will go to Global Zero, a nonprofit group whose goal is to eliminate nuclear weapons.
Wilson’s “GoFundMe” had raised just short of $25,000 as of 8:30 p.m. E.T. Wednesday.
