as he became the latest billionaire Republican megadonor to say he won’t support former President Donald Trump’s 2024 campaign for the White House.

Schwarzman’s comments, first reported by Axios, came after another GOP megadonor, Ken Griffin, also indicated he wouldn’t back Trump’s third presidential run. Griffin, CEO of hedge fund Citadel, told Bloomberg News on Tuesday that Trump was a “three-time loser” and that he was hoping the former president would make way for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
