(THE HILL) — Tom Steyer spent $87 million on the 2016 elections, and all he got was a Trump administration full of nominees he opposes.
The liberal billionaire, who funded Democratic campaigns across the country and ballot measures in his home state of California, said in an interview he intends to remain involved in politics now that President Donald Trump has taken office.
He said he still believes most voters agree with Democratic ideals, though the party didn’t effectively convey them in November.

“I think there’s no doubt that we reflect the will of the people to an overwhelming extent. I don’t think we were successful in conveying the spirit behind those policies, and I don’t think we were successful in transmitting the urgency behind those policies,” Steyer told The Hill.
