Former President Donald Trump narrowly survived an assassination attempt on Saturday. All Americans were urged to tone down the rhetoric. For Democrats that idea didn't last long.

A significant chunk of the tech industry's money and power is lining up behind former President Trump.Why it matters: Silicon Valley was once solidly Democratic, with just a handful of Republican outliers. Now its red camp is growing and throwing around its weight.Driving the news: Venture capital billionaires Marc Andreessen and Ben Horowitz each will make donations to Trump's re-election effort, Axios has learned."Techno-optimists" Andreessen and Horowitz are following hot on the heels of Elon Musk's announcement that he would endorse Trump and form a PAC to aid his campaign. Between the lines: Neither Andreessen nor Horowitz is believed to have previously donated to a presidential campaign.Andreessen publicly supported Mitt Romney in 2012, but in 2016 said that he was struggling to decide between a candidate who "doesn't believe in science" (Trump) and one who "doesn't believe in economics" (Hillary Clinton).The Information reported earlier on their planned donations. The intrigue: Andreessen Horowitz, the VC firm the pair co-founded in 2009, said late last year that its partners would begin making donations to political candidates they saw as "advancing technology."A source says that the Trump donations are in that vein — motivated by areas like crypto and AI regulation, without regard to other issues like abortion or the Supreme Court.In short, they believe Trump will be better for tech startups than will Biden, who they believe favors entrenched incumbents.Yes, but: Andreessen sits on the board of Facebook, while Andreessen Horowitz has invested in Microsoft-affiliated OpenAI.The big picture: Silicon Valley, which began with tons of Pentagon funding but lies near the heart of the ultra-liberal San Francisco Bay Area, has always been home to both Democrats and Republicans.The leaders of the industry's giants — from Microsoft and Apple to Google and Facebook — have sought to thrive under presidents from both parties, and rarely taken sides.Trump's first-term anti-immigration policies tested that resolve, with Google co-founder Sergey Brin joining a 2017 protest at San Francisco Airport. The tech workforce is full of skilled workers on visas who flock from around the globe to get a slice of tech wealth. The bottom line: With Trump's fortunes at a high ebb, don't be surprised to see more tech execs join his corner.Go deeper: Musk endorses Trump after shooting at rally

Venture capital billionaires Marc Andreessen and Ben Horowitz each will make donations to former President Trump's election effort, and will lay out their reasoning in a podcast later Tuesday afternoon, Axios has learned.Why it matters: This is part of a small but growing number of tech elites writing checks for Trump, despite Silicon Valley's liberal leanings.Neither Andreessen nor Horowitz is believed to have previously donated to a presidential campaign. Andreessen publicly supported Mitt Romney in 2012, but in 2016 said that he was struggling to decide between a candidate who "doesn't believe in science" (Trump) and one who "doesn't believe in economics" (Hillary Clinton), before ultimately endorsing Clinton.The Information reported earlier on their planned donations.Behind the scenes: Andreessen Horowitz, the VC firm the pair co-founded in 2009, said late last year that its partners would begin making donations to political candidates they saw as "advancing technology."A source says that the Trump donations are in that vein — motivated by areas like crypto and AI regulation, without regard to other issues like abortion or the Supreme Court.In short, they believe Trump will be better for tech startups than will Biden, who they believe favors entrenched incumbents.Yes, but: Andreessen sits on the board of Facebook, while Andreessen Horowitz has invested in Microsoft-affiliated OpenAI. The bottom line: Now that Trump is the frontrunner, don't be surprised to see more tech execs in his corner.Go deeper: Musk endorses Trump after shooting at rallyUpdate: A video version of Andreessen and Horowitz's podcast has been posted.
