"The basic strategy is 50-50".

"Every result looks so meaningful, so significant".

Although the couple says they have not picked a Democratic presidential candidate yet, they reserve a particular amount of scorn for Bernie Sanders' campaign.

"We love all 23 candidates", Saban told the Hollywood Reporter.

"I profoundly dislike Bernie Sanders, and you can write it". He calls us 'the billionaire class.' And he attacks us indiscriminately.

Saban, whose net worth is estimated to be around $3 billion, said his disdain for the Vermont senator stems from his frequent denunciations of the "billionaire class", which, said Saban, is "how communists think". "One is a disaster zone".

"I can't deny the impact that Bernie has had on the Democratic Party", Saban said.

Yousef Munayyer, the executive director of the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, told The Intercept that the tone of Saban's email sounded "less like a honest attempt to convince anyone and more like the bitter ramblings of a political investor who knows the base of the party he has long supported is uninterested in backing Israel's heinous human rights abuses any more". Well, thank you so very much. "Hallelujah, praise the lord".

Saban continued his criticism of Sanders by mocking what he sees as the self-proclaimed "democratic socialist" senator's unenthusiastic support for the Jewish state. In 2016, he and his wife Cheryl gave a total of $12.2 million to Priorities USA Action, the largest Democratic Super PAC that supported Hillary Clinton's campaign.

Billionaire mega-donor Haim Saban said Wednesday that he loves every 2020 Democratic presidential candidate-before quickly correcting himself. "She was asked a question related to what's going on between Israel and the Palestinians, and she said, 'Well, I'm going to have to study this.' So, here she made a statement that is pretty scary and pretty compelling but misinformed".
