It _was_ elected. Even if you might not be in favor of this decision, it was elected in a democratical way, according to US laws and rules.
You might not think those rules are good or right, but many others do, and they have evolved over time, and were decided by democratic decisions.
I'm no US citizen, and I'm glad I didn't have to vote because it's quite hard to chose between two awful choices, but the US people made their choice, as I said, in a democratic manner.
Well, anyway, that's not what this discussion or this article is about...
I think it's not a good thing to speak out against people funding you, especially in a situation where you need the funding for a project. OTOH, it's bad decision to pull the plug just because of one person saying those things one time.
Well, it seems we can't change it anyway, let's go back to work and hack up some code, we can achieve more doing that :)
