If anything has been buzzing in news for a while now it has been the presidential campaign between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Who doesn’t like dirty politics? Now of course there are those who favour Trump and those who favour Hillary. One who is on Clinton’s side goes by the name of Tim Cook. According to CNN Money U.S., Tim Cook is doing everything in his power to help Clinton win.
In doing so, he is hosting an event in California to help raise money for Clinton’s presidential campaign. Contributions start at $50,000 for those attending and invited. According to CNN many are in favour of helping out Clinton. People like Sean Parker; Founder of Napster, and Ruth Porat CFO of Google have contributed along with many well-known and successful individuals.
Why do you suppose people are pro Clinton and Against Trump? Well for starters, he has attacked tech companies and he doesn’t use a lot of tech. According to digital journal, Trump at one point didn’t even own a personal computer and said that using email was for cowards. This I find very strange.
Almost as if Trump thinks he’s too good for technology. It doesn’t surprise me, because this kind of talk goes a long with his attitude and cockiness. In addition, he opposes the industries on subject matters concerning immigration and trade. So it’s without a doubt that Clinton has raised more money from tech industries than Trump. How much more? Just a measly $200,000. What does this mean? Is Hillary more likeable than Trump?
Statements From Trump forwarded to African Americans such as: “Vote for me and I will make sure you won’t get shot.” I find this very blatant and somewhat offensive. Power has to be given to Hillary. It can’t be easy to run against Trump. Being a woman there is the double standard and considerably she is the minority even though women have come so far as being considered equal to men. Overall, she’s doing well. Across many social media sites I have come across Americans saying that if Trump wins they are leaving the States. I find this very drastic, but this only heightens their hate for Trump.
In terms of stats and peoples opinions, here’s what’s to say. According to Bustle, 40 percent of individuals polled in China appraised no confidence in Trump’s foreign policy qualifications. Lets face it; Trump is not admired in China. In Sweden, for instance, a skyrocketing 92 percent of those polled said they had no self-assurance in his capacity to efficiently deal with international issues. In terms and comparison of Hillary Clinton, she did better. Overall, Europeans were 57 percent self-assured in her power — which can be distinguished to Trump.
According to the Wall Street Journal, many have expressed concerns and criticism towards Trumps anti-tech phenomenon. Close to 150 technology executives including Apple Inc. co-founder Steve Wozniak. Twitter Inc. co-founder Evan Williams and eBay Inc. Founder Pierre Omidyar released an open letter to Mr. Trump.
Firmly discussing why they don’t support him, who they claim would be a ‘disaster for innovation.’ The letter states, “We believe in an inclusive country that fosters opportunity, creativity and a level playing field. Donald Trump does not. He campaigns on anger, bigotry, fear of new ideas and new people, and a fundamental belief that America is weak and in decline.”
