Some people are not really who they say they are…
Erik Finman the founder of the “Freedom Phone” reportedly donated $2,800 to Biden’s campaign in 2020.
Since his donation, he launched the “Freedom Phone” which claims to prioritize free speech and privacy.
Finman has advertised the phone amongst Conservatives which is strange due to the fact he donated to the Biden campaign.
Currently, Finman is now planning to donate over $10 million to different Conservative candidates but the question still remains, has he changed since he supported the Biden campaign?

CNBC News dropped these details:
Though Finman gave $2,800 to President Joe Biden’s campaign during the 2020 election, he’s become increasingly more conservative. He met with former President Donald Trump in February at Mar-a-Lago, his private club in Florida, and said he plans to support the twice-impeached president if he runs again in 2024.
Finman also spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Florida, earlier this year. The conference is organized by longtime Trump ally Matt Schlapp.
A high school dropout, Finman said he attended a summit Thiel hosts for a fellowship program he runs that gives $100,000 over two years to participants who drop out of school to pursue business opportunities. Masters and Thiel worked together at Thiel’s firm, Thiel Capital.
He said he met Masters while participating in the program and then spoke with him again at a 2020 election night party hosted by Thiel at his home in Los Angeles. Finman says he encouraged Masters to run for Arizona’s Senate seat and he has since given $5,800 to his campaign.

Here’s what the Sun Reported about the Freedom Phone Founder:
The 22 year-old self-proclaimed “Bitcoin millionaire” Erik Finman in an interview with The New York Times described smartphones as “the ultimate political tools. Everyone has one in their pocket.” His brand new Freedom Phone promises to prioritize “free speech and privacy”above anything else. You might assume that the Freedom Phone follows the trend of phone-makers like Apple that use software updates to make it harder for companies to track you. Finman’s initial announcement for the Freedom Phone was followed swiftly by security concerns raised by numerous publications and privacy experts.
The Freedom Phone and its politically conservative branding will appeal to many, but there is nothing to suggest that the phone, its privacy claims or avoidance of Big Tech work the way Finman suggests. The phone raises a number of red flags despite its maker wanting you to see nothing more than red, white and blue. The Freedom Phone contradicts Finman’s hype and it makes me wonder if he is being entirely forthright with buyers.
On Aug. 9, Finman posted to Twitter a picture of a stack of FedEx boxes with the caption, “It’s shipping time.” The tweet was posted using Twitter for iPhone.
