Even as most opinion polls had predicted that Hillary Clinton was all set to be the next U.S President, the Republican Donald Trump succeeded in winning the election much to the huge surprise of not just American people but also those who had been waiting for the final outcome with bated breath.
Though the former secretary of state and first lady Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, she couldn’t win enough electoral support. The surprise outcome has left many people in shock. With both the candidates getting almost equal votes, the divisive election has left massive blueprint behind.
Apple CEO Tim Cook Calls for Unity Post U.S Election
Apple CEO Tim Cook has called for unity in the email sent to employees post the U.S election. Here is the email…
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!
Hopefully, the Donald Trump becomes a successful president of America and leads the country towards new high.
