Barry Diller: I’ll Leave The Country If Trump ‘Doesn’t Fall’

Barry Diller, chairman and founder of IAC Interactive, said Tuesday that he would leave the country — or join the resistance — if Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump “doesn’t fall,” Bloomberg reported.

Diller criticized Trump at the Bloomberg Markets Most Influential Summit.

“All he is is a huckster,” Diller said, according to the report. “Somebody who learned long ago in real estate that if you can make a big name for yourself, it can get you an extra dollar. He’s a self-promoting huckster who found a vein. A vein of meanness and nastiness.”

“If Donald Trump doesn’t fall, I’ll either move out of the country or join the resistance,” Diller said, adding that he was sure Trump would not be president.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
