Mark Zuckerberg Surprised an Ohio Family at Their House for Dinner

He said that talk at the dinner table had been about politics as well as fundraising and charity work.

The Youngstown Vindicator reported on Saturday that the Newton Falls family only knew they were to receive a "mystery guest", and were pleased when it turned out to be the founder of Facebook in a slate-colored t-shirt. "After a tumultuous a year ago, my hope for this challenge is to get out and talk to more people about how they're living, working and thinking about the future". Because members of the Moore family are Democratic, but voted for Republican President Donald Trump, they gained attention in the media. "It was completely incredible".

"He cares very much about family and about community", he said.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is on a quest to check off everything on a presidential candidate to-do list. 'And he's taking steps to do a lot of very positive things with his money'.

While at the plant, Zuckerberg worked the line, adding antennas, cleats and drilling screws, but said "the most interesting part was sitting down with some of the people who do this every day".

Earlier in the day, Zuckerberg spoke with Muslim students at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, WKBN reports. "Just down-to-earth and real easy to talk to".

Zuckerberg posted a photo of himself at the Moore family dining table on Facebook, of course.

The trip marks his first visit to the Great Lakes state.

It's my first time in Michigan, and my first stop was at the Ford Rouge Plant outside Detroit.

While in South Bend, Zuckerberg toured the city with democratic Mayor Paul Buttigieg.

He also met with people recovering from opioid addiction in Dayton, Ohio.

Zuckerberg's meet-and-greet tour has fueled speculation that he is laying the groundwork for a possible run for the presidency in 2020, according to The Atlantic.
