Branson appeared on MSNBC to discuss Virgin Galactic’s partnership with New Mexico to build the first-ever commercial spaceport. At the end of the interview, host Yasmin Vossoughian asked Branson about income inequality and the role people like him “should play with regards to income inequality.”
Branson noted, “We have a very important role. I think if anybody is fortunate to be successful, wealth, and sometimes extreme wealth, comes with it and there’s an enormous responsibility to redistribute that wealth by setting up, in our case, many, many different kinds of programs.“
Billionaire liberal Tom Steyer wants Americans to know that Democrats won’t be toning down the rhetoric anytime soon.
Steyer: “So basically when you think about how we’re going to succeed and actually kick their ass, it’s going to be based on justice, environmental justice, economic justice and coloration.“
“That is how California worked, we lead with justice.“
“And so when we look at what’s going to happen in 2020, we are going to have to crush these people.“
“Honestly, I think the whole idea that they’re going to compromise, they’re going to come to their senses, they don’t really understand what’s going on.“
