Early Facebook investor and Trump supporter Peter Thiel weighed in on the Democrats taking on the president in 2020.
"I'm most scared by Elizabeth Warren," he said on Monday on Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight."
"She's the one that's actually talking about the economy, which is the thing that matters most," Thiel told Carlson. He said the others were "equally unimpressive" as they all were embracing "one form of identity politics or another."
Noting that Google has called its research "a Manhattan Project for A.I," he added. "I would naturally think this would draw the attention of foreign intelligence agencies."
He also said he believes some Google employees ideologically think that the U.S. is worse than China.
Thiel has generally stayed out of the spotlight, but emerged in 2016 to endorse Donald Trump's presidential campaign and speak at the Republican National Convention, a rare move in Silicon Valley. Last year, Thiel donated to the Republican National Committee as Trump was gearing up for his re-election campaign.
He has also spoken out about Google's monopoly power in the past.
Facebook, which competes with Google for billions in online advertising dollars, is also under scrutiny for having too much power over the tech industry.
Representatives from both companies, alongside those from Apple and Amazon, will testify before the House Judiciary Committee about antitrust issues on Tuesday, and Facebook is also appearing before House and Senate committees this week to defend its plan to facilitate a new digital currency called Libra.
