Peter Theil is a fellow immortalist who loves Trump. Many Transhumanists want a Trump presidency because they believe Trump would boost the economy via policies that bolster capitalism. This could hasten life extension therapies emerging from private corporations. Trump is the most libertarian of all the candidates and would be the least likely candidate to impose strict FDA regulations on experimental gene therapies that could cure aging. The current FDA regulations often hinder and slow progress in regenerative medicine. Thus, Trump could easily be regarded as the most pro-science candidate. Peter Theil is a hardcore libertarian and wants to live forever. He said: “I’ve always had this really strong sense that death was a terrible, terrible thing.” –Peter Theil

I also discuss Peter Theil in a semi-recent Q and A video: https://youtu.be/-XqGD0oIO9Y
