SILICON VALLEY — Billionaire venture capitalist Peter Thiel defended his support of presidential candidate Donald Trump today in Washington, D.C., saying the dangers facing the country were more important than Trump’s bombastic personality and many gaffes.

“We’re voting for Trump because we judge the leadership of our country to have failed,” Thiel said at the National Press Club. “This judgment has been hard to accept for some of the country’s most fortunate, socially prominent people.”
