Tim Cook announces $2 million in donations after Charlottesville

Tim Cook announces $2 million in donations after Charlottesville

Cooks' newest comments come amid growing fallout in support from business leaders over Mr. Trump's Charlottesville comments, with many leaving the president's manufacturing council shortly before Mr. Trump himself announced he would be disbanding it altogether. "Equating the two runs counter to our ideals as Americans", he added, referencing y'all's president blunder of a statement after Trump attempted to paint white supremacists and counter-demonstrations with the same brush.

"What occurred in Charlottesville has no place in our country", he continued.

And, while he did not name Trump directly, he did hint that president's comments that "blame lay on both sides" - the alt-right and alt-left - were wrong.

Apple sales in India, CEO Cook said, grew at double digits and set a new record in the March quarter.

Apple will donate $1 million to the Anti-Defamation League and a further $1 million to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Mr Cook wrote: "Hate is a cancer, and left unchecked it destroys everything in its path".

He said he had spoken with "many people at Apple who are saddened, outraged or confused" by the weekend's events, in which one woman was killed and many others injured when a vehicle ploughed into counter-demonstrators.

But unfortunately, in choosing the Southern Poverty Law Center, Cook is promoting an alternate hate-filled agenda targeting social conservatives and others. "It scars and lasts generations". It was horrifying to see the footage of men in the streets of the United States shout "Jews will not replace us".

Cook has had a hard relationship with the Trump administration from the beginning. As a company through their actions, products, and voice Apple will always work to make certain that all are given the same respect and equal treatment.

Apple has always had people from different places working for them and they have always been welcomed displaying their inclusive nature.

Cook said that he will match Apple employees donations two-for-one to either of those groups or other human rights organizations through the end of September. Identity Evropa, a northern California hate group that helped organize participants in Charlottesville, tweeted Monday that it had lost service from MailChimp, Squarespace and PayPal. In the coming days, Apple will provide a way for its customers to donate to the SPLC through iTunes as well, Cook wrote.

Donald Trump was heavily critized for not condemning the white supremacists strongly enough, which led to high profile business chiefs such as Tim Cook either to speak out or resign. These have been dark days, but I remain as optimistic as ever that the future is bright.

"As I've said, across Microsoft, we will stand together with those who are standing for positive change in the communities where we live, work, and serve".
