Apple CEO addresses his employees in an email over Charlottesville
The Charlottesville incident doesn’t seem to leave US President Donald Trump alone. Trump has been facing criticism since last weekend. His response to the incident has left him unprotected against his critics.
The latest addition to his opposition to the response is Tim Cook.
Tim is the current CEO of technology giant Apple. Tim got into the action on the eve of Wednesday. He sent an email to all his employees around the world. The email expresses his disagreement with Trump’s views.
Tim has announced for a $2 million dollars of donation in a fight against hate. He condemned racism in his email. In addition to that, he also criticized Trump’s response to the Charlottesville violence.
What did Cook write?
According to the BuzzFeed news, Cook described ‘hate’ as cancer. He said that the employees at Apple must be very clear on not fighting. He added that they must not take part in any form of racism or discrimination. He strongly wrote against Trump’s response as well.
What did Trump say earlier?
Trump responded to the Charlottesville Va. violence on Tuesday. He remarked by saying that the fault is of ‘both sides’. He said this for the White Supremacist and anti racist protestors.
Cook said that no moral equivalence exists between the supremacists and Nazis.
Apple will be donating $1 million each separately to Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League. According to Cook, Apple will soon provide a way to its users to make a contribution to the suffered.
