Apple CEO Tim Cook to Host Fundraiser for Hillary Clinton

Apple CEO Tim Cook to Host Fundraiser for Hillary Clinton

Posted July 29, 2016 at 8:13pm by iClarified
Apple CEO Tim Cook is planning to host a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton next month, reports BuzzFeed. Clinton just became the first woman in U.S. history to be the presidential nominee of a major party.

Cook, joined by Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of environment, policy and social initiatives, will help raise money for the Hillary Victory Fund, according to an invitation obtained by BuzzFeed News. The fund is a joint fundraising committee that contributes to the Clinton campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and 38 state parties. The fundraiser will take place on August 24, with an address to be provided to guests.

The fundraiser is not being hosted by Apple but rather by Cook as a private citizen. There are three contribution levels: $50,000, $10,000, and $2,700.

Last month, Cook hosted a fundraiser for Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.

Did I mention Trump is part and wants to further propagate systematic racism against African Americans and other minorities here in the us? Well, he does. He also sold secrets to other countries, including Russia and he has gone bankrupt more than 3 times. Can we trust him with the economy when he is to profit from a bad economy as well as those on the top? You be the judge.

I wouldn't argue with that dude. His comments are all over the place sometimes and make no sense. And why would never buy and apple product again because Cook is holding a fundraiser? It has nothing to do with Apple as a company. He also held one for Trump and the republicans too by the way.

Do you know how Scott was fired? Because of political.. Hopefully it will not be the same for apple

Scott was not fired because of political reasons. It was internal politics between employees about business matters and him not willing to apologize for the Maps app being screwed up when released. Had nothing to do with government politics.

Just In ...................... Now Hillary Clinton's own campaign is hacked: Democrats were warned they were a target in March but REFUSED to help FBI probe into cyber attacks

President Trump isn't going to be too happy about this. I guess it's his money, he can waste it any way he likes.
justabrake - July 29, 2016 at 11:44pm
Trump said he's going to make an example out of tax dodging companies starting with apple democrap supporters first !

I don't like Hillary or the Dems either but did bother to read the article? It's not a fundraiser just for Hilary it's a Democratic Party fundraiser to raise money for many democrats running this year. Cook also held one for the republicans also. This has nothing to do with apple at all.

Big business doing what big business does and politicians doing what they do. I guess one can't really blame Cook. He's doing what a good CEO would do. But, this just reinforces more of what Americans are sick and tired of. Politicians are paid for and purchased by big business and they are rich rich rich and untouchable while the average American is gouged gouged and gouged some more and walked all over. Americans are sick of this shit and Shillary just doesn't know any other way.
