"A partner at Peter Thiel’s venture firm Founders Fund broke with the iconoclastic billionaire, writing in a blog post Sunday that he’s fearful of Donald Trump’s presidency and that he thinks the technology industry bears some of the blame for Trump’s rise.

Founders Fund’s Geoff Lewis became the first partner at the firm to speak out publicly against Trump since the election. The warning comes as Thiel has become ensconced in Trump’s inner circle. Thiel is a member of Trump’s transition team, people told Bloomberg this week. The chief executive officer of Lyft, one of Lewis’s own portfolio companies, was even floated as a possible secretary of transportation in the upcoming administration."
