Apple’s CEO Tim Cook Wrote A Letter To Employees After Trump’s Win

Tim-Cook-Apple-CEO

Tim Cook has written a letter to all the Apple Employees following Donald Trump’s unexpected win in the 2016 US Presidential Election. However, the letter does not refer to Donald Trump by name. As many other tech giants executives and Business leaders, Tim Cook remained silent in public.

Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, and Microsoft’s CEO, Satya Nandella, have also reacted to Donald Trump’s surprise win.

Tim Cook wrote this letter to cheer and motivate the company’s employees. “We have a very diverse team of employees, including supporters of each of the candidates. Regardless of which candidate each of us supported as individuals, the only way to move forward is to move forward together,” the letter reads.




Here’s the full copy of the letter:

Team,

I’ve heard from many of you today about the presidential election. In a political contest where the candidates were so different and each received a similar number of popular votes, it’s inevitable that the aftermath leaves many of you with strong feelings.

We have a very diverse team of employees, including supporters of each of the candidates. Regardless of which candidate each of us supported as individuals, the only way to move forward is to move forward together. I recall something Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said 50 years ago: “If you can’t fly, then run. If you can’t run, then walk. If you can’t walk, then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” This advice is timeless, and a reminder that we only do great work and improve the world by moving forward.

While there is discussion today about uncertainties ahead, you can be confident that Apple’s North Star hasn’t changed. Our products connect people everywhere, and they provide the tools for our customers to do great things to improve their lives and the world at large. Our company is open to all, and we celebrate the diversity of our team here in the United States and around the world – regardless of what they look like, where they come from, how they worship or who they love.

I’ve always looked at Apple as one big family and I encourage you to reach out to your co-workers if they are feeling anxious.

Let’s move forward – together!

Best,

Tim
