Stephen Cloobeck, Diamond Resorts International CEO and a major Democratic donor, said on MSNBC on Tuesday that he is “done” with the Democratic Party if they continue their sprint to the left.

“It’s so effin’ wrong,” Cloobeck said of Democrats’ message. “I’ve talked to [Senate Minority Leader Chuck] Schumer, I’ve talked to [Senator Ron] Wyden, I’ve talked to [House Minority Leader Nancy] Pelosi, and I said, ‘If you use the term billionaires again, I’m done.'”

The CEO told MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle that most Americans want to be rich, and the government shouldn’t penalize successful citizens.

“We should be the party of doing well. We should be a party of business and leadership,” he said.

Cloobeck slammed Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for dragging the party so far to the left.

“It would make me quit the party, and I’ve made it clear, I’ll cut [Democrats’] money off,” he warned of the Democratic Party’s extremism.

Cloobeck is a prolific Democratic donor, and a quick viewing of his FEC records shows millions of dollars in donations to Democratic campaign infrastructure across the country
