Mark Zuckerberg, the co-founder of Facebook, sides with Bernie
Sanders, Democratic presidential candidate, that no single individual
deserves to be a billionaire.
Last September, the 2020 US presidential candidate made a declarative
statement about billionaires during an interview with The New York
Times, saying: "I don't think that billionaires should exist."
Sanders was explaining his plans for a wealth tax and a National
"This proposal does not eliminate billionaires, but it eliminates a
lot of the wealth that billionaires have, and I think that's exactly
what we should be doing," he added.
Reacting to this during a question and answer session with staff of
Facebook, at the company's headquarters in California, Zukerberg
agreed that no one should have that much money.
He said: “I understand where he’s coming from. I don’t know if I have
an exact threshold on what amount of money someone should have but on
some level, no one deserves to have that much money.”
“I think that if you do something that is good, you should get
rewarded. But I do think that some of the wealth that can be
accumulated is unreasonable."
