Tim Cook’s Fourth of July tweet is pretty pointed


Apple CEO Tim Cook displayed his patriotic side by wishing everyone a happy Independence Day with a rather pointed tweet.

Cook was referring to this particular quote from former President Franklin D. Roosevelt: “Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.”

This comes just weeks after Cook sat down with President Trump at a roundtable meeting with other tech execs to discuss concerns regarding the proposed executive order on immigration.

In a report by the New York Times via Business Insider, Cook expressed that tech employees were feeling targeted after the “travel ban” was proposed.

The New York Times’ Maggie Haberman, who covered the meeting, tweeted:

This isn’t the first time Cook has stood up for immigrants. Right after Trump was elected to office, Cook sent out a memo to Apple employees reiterating the company’s commitment to diversity.
