Tim Cook the Latest CEO to Distance Himself From Trump

Apple CEO Tim Cook has become the latest US executive to criticise Donald Trump over his reaction to white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Mr Cook said he disagreed with the US President’s comments that there was blame on “many sides” for the clashes between white nationalists and counter protesters.

In an email to Apple’s staff, obtained by Buzzfeed, he wrote: “What occurred in Charlottesville has no place in our country. Hate is a cancer, and left unchecked it destroys everything in its path. Its scars last generations.
